God’s Son does not have life.
I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so

know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will
give us what we ask for.

leads to death, and I am not saying you should pray for those who commit
it. All wicked actions are sin, but not every sin leads to death.
We know that God’s children do not make a practice of sinning, for
God’s Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot touch them. We
know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under
the control of the evil one.
And we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we live in fellowship
