People frequently ask, “Why do we have to suffer for what our relatives did?” The answer is that we don’t’ have to if we deal with sin God’s way. We will suffer only if we enter into the same sins. Although our ancestors caused us to be “set up,” we are now held accountable by God for our own sins. We cannot shift the blame. The bad news is that we are affected by our parents’ sins. The good news is that God has provided the way for our freedom from all the effects of their sin as well as ours.
