No one is supposed to suffer the sins of their fathers. When a crime is committed the very person is to suffer the consequences but all we hear from some self-ordained preachers are that our fathers have sinned, and we bear their iniquity.
This very Bible verse has become a golden message that some false preachers use to exploit their followers. To be able to understand the Bible you need to be connected to God, read and study your Bible diligently, and pray for the spirit to open your eyes.
What most preachers do is to make their followers believe that their forefathers have committed lots of atrocities, and as a result of that their generation must pay the price to be able to have a better life. What this preacher will never elaborate on is, when Jesus was crucified on the cross, He took away all our sins and sorrow He paid with his precious blood, why must you accept the fact that some false preachers are manipulating you with the message of doom.
In the book of Ezekiel, 18:4 God made us understand that the soul that sinneth is the one to die, let stop patronizing these false teachers, and when you read the same Ezekiel 18:19-20 it says the father will not bear the iniquity of the son likewise the son will not bear the iniquity of his father, meaning anyone that sinneth will face the penalty of their sins.
We need to wake up from our slumber and stop elevating these false preachers who are everywhere, they have turned the doctrine of the Bible into merchandise that even the very educated ones among them have fallen victims of their scam.
You are not to suffer the sins of your fathers, they have lived and gone, work on your mindset, and ask the holy spirit to direct you when you read and study the word of God.
