  • I believe that if you are saved through Christ that all things are forgiven.

  • I think once you are saved, it is broken by the blood shed on Calvary.

  • I believe that some things, like a bad temper can be learned, and other things like a tendency towards depression can be inherited, just like a tendency to develop diabetes or heart disease can be inherited. Some things are a combination of both inherited and learned behavior. I don't think it's a generational curse. I'm not a Christian, but even I can't see your God being that vengeful and cruel.

  • ive never heard of a generational curse before, and im Christian. i read parts of the article but couldn't read it all b/c i disagree with the whole idea. the reason children are similar to their parents (even if they arent around them) is genetics. things like depression, bad tempers, & other things of a similar nature are problems within the brain; nuerons dont fire correctly, or certain neurological paths were not formed correctly. and this could go down generational lines.

    a good friend of mine has anxiety & is adopted. his birth parents (who he didnt meet till 18) also suffer from this. God may have made their minds work that way & given them this struggle, but i dont see it as a punishment that one has to carry b/c of their parents sins.

  • I don't agree with the concept of "generational curse" as outlined in the article. People may have genetic dispositions to something. They may have learned bad habits from their families. But we all have free will and are not locked into any behavior.

    The idea of a generational curse seems like it's an attempt to remove personal responsiblity for someone's actions. Like 'it's not my fault, it's something my father caused me to do'. I think God wants us to take responsiblity for our actions and try to rectify any problems. And when we do take personal responsiblity and repent our sins God forgives us and because of the Blood of Christ we can obtain everlasting life.

  • i whole heartedly believe in generational curses. poverty is a great example. i dont think its something that is automatically broken when you are saved, but i believe it CAN be if you recognize it, and bind it.
