Generational Sin

In the final message of the series, we unpack what it really means that God visits the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the 3rd and 4th generation. Can we be punished for sins our parents or grandparents committed? Can someone be trapped in sin because of something someone else did? We’ll take a look at these questions, plus unpack how God speaks a better word to us all, as we wrestle through these issues.


Exodus 34:7 (Listen)

keeping steadfast love for thousands,1 forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children’s children, to the third and the fourth generation.”


[1] 34:7 Or to the thousandth generation
