    Yes. I don't put much stock in the bible but I believe in karma...what you put out there comes back, if not to you then to the ppl you love most. I also believe if you put out good, it will help your children...help some random stranger today and one day in the future someone will help your child when they need it most.

    exactly. I say this and I get told I am being mean But this is the sum of it. Whatever your "sins" are if you dont face them and get them under control they will dictate your actions and how you raise your children.

    And when you cant teach them properly, that is how those "sins" get passed on because the learn the same detrimental mentality as their parents and thus end up making the same choices as their parents - because they see it as the norm.

    so if you think being on welfare for your entire life is not a bad thing and your kids see you embrace that kind of thinking....guess what....they more than likely will live the same life and have the same hardships as their parents.

    I was thinking more along these lines. Like if someone murders someone and get away with it, when and if they don't pay for that, then it passes on to their kids where they may be murdered by someone...

    But i see the other viewpoints as well.

    But we under a new covenant according to Hebrews 8, so I believe this law is nullified. At the end of the day though, even if sins from the father don't translate to the son, the son will still be sinful since everyone sins.

    Not really. It has everything to do with how parents raise their children. If parents have not overcome certain sins and/or do not make an effort to curb harmful behavior in their children, then the children may turn out much worse. However, if parents are making a concerted effort to do right, the children often will turn out better.

    But what does being under a new covenant really mean?

    Matt 5:17-18 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

    Hebrews 8 only deals with sacrificial/ceremonial law and the meaning of Christ's sacrifice. The New Covenant does not do away with all of God's laws. It does away with the physical ceremonies because Christ is our sacrificial Lamb. That is why Matthew 5 makes very clear that not one jot or tittle of the law will be done away with until heaven and earth pass away.

    There are different laws in the Scripture: Ten Commandments (moral law)
    sacrificial/ceremonial law, health laws (principles), the law of Moses (distinct from God's law). So whether or not the law is done away with/applicable depends on which laws are being referenced. Context is everything.

    Misunderstanding of what the New Covenant is and does is one of the greatest deceptions being taught in Christianity today. Lots of info out there on this, but guess that's another discussion...

    No I dont believe it..Peopple only apply and think of this theory when its convenient to their perspective.
    If a man/woman is struggling in life its easy to say its becasue their parents did alot of wrong..but this perception is almost never considered when you see someone who is sucessful and doing well in life that have the worse parents

    Till all is fulfilled is what I believe. I believe the fulfillment happened when Jesus died on the cross.
