What Do We Do with the Guilt of Generational Sin?

Does God punish us for the sins of our ancestors? Should we repent of sins our parents or grandparents committed even if we had nothing to do with those wrongdoings? Those questions are coming up lately as many people grapple with the idea that people of a lighter skin tone must repent of racism against people with a darker skin tone. The headlines from the visible church — the ones that follow the social gospel anyway — tell us that racism is a generational sin we must repent of.

Amy and Michelle discuss what the Bible has to say about generational sin with special guest Beth Seifert. Beth is a wife, mom, home school teacher and women’s ministry teacher, as well as the author of many Bible studies at Naomi’s Table.
