Inheriting Sin.

I am here, Jesus.

You have come upon what seems like a contradiction, and I would like to address it. On the one hand, you have learned that we inherit sins from our ancestors, but on the other hand, you also believe that infants are innocent.

The answer is that inheritance is potential. If a child is given the right nurture and support, it will resist this negativity. Also, a lot depends on the free-will choices of the child itself. But a good inheritance can help a person, and a bad inheritance can harm that person.

In the final analysis, everything depends on the choices that are made, and no matter how much darkness is potentially inherited, it can be easily overcome through will power and a good heart. Early childhood abuse triggers those inherited tendencies of darkness, but good, loving, and accepting parents encourage and strengthen the child in the right way.

The ability to resist evil and temptation is within everybody’s grasp, so if the opportunity is not taken, the individual has only himself or herself to blame. And even if there is a fall, there is always the option of repentance and an attempt to make restitution, which also involve choices.

That means that whatever character we possess is the result of these choices, and this defined character determines our immediate fate in the spirit world after death has found us.
