“Judge not, that ye be not judged.”
King James Version (KJV)

Louie, No, the sins of your grandparents nor of your parents or anyone else, can ever be held against you. We are all accountable to God for the sins we commit.
"The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die." Ezekiel 18:20,21.
And even though "the wages of sin is death" (Rom 6:23), "the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
We are all guilty before God for our own sins & it's only by our faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, that we can be saved from its awful penalty. However, the genes that are passed on to us from our parents, etc. can include characteristics that are not always wholesome. Other times, it's not just the genes, but also what children see & learn from their parents that cause them to err later in life. What a great responsibility parents have: they can't remove the genes they pass on, but they can demonstrate good living & teach their children to do so, especially according to the Bible. Yet, we still have to deal with our weaknesses & failings in these areas, in the Power that Christ has given us.

Yes study prophecy - Exodus 19:5 - Now therefore, IF IF IF ye (Jews) will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:
Jeremiah 11:10 - They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers.
Leviticus 18:5 - Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which IF IF IF a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD. Thing is the Jews did not keep the covenant and did you know God DIVORCED ISRAEL....
Hmmm. most do not know.
Jeremiah 3:8 - And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of DIVORCE divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.
Jeremiah 5:11 - For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, saith the LORD.
Question: Who does the Bible alone say KILLED JESUS
A: 1 Thessalonians 2:14 -15 ...even as they have of the Jews: Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, ....
Q: Is there another plan of salvation for unbelieving Jews?
A: Acts 4:12 - Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Q: Did Jesus take the Kingdom of God from the Jews?
A: Matthew 21:43 - Therefore say I (Jesus speaking to the Jews) unto you,
The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
Matthew 23:15 - Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees (ALL Pharisees are Jews) , hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
Harsh words from Jesus
PROPHESY's comment on 2020-07-17 08:54:43:
Figure out when the fullness of the Gentiles has or will be completed. That's what we're waiting on.
The fig tree is Israel. When is summer? When is the harvest?
Certain conditions are already in play. The return of The Dispersed Jews is happening, every day. Anti-semitism is driving them to "go home to the land of their fathers."
Briefly, the Palestinians fled from their countries to live wherever they could be allowed in. Now the world watches to see if Israel will be "forced" to accept the 2 State deal on the table. Will they give up all they won in 1967 for Peace?
Keep your eyes on what Russia and China does to push this thing along. Prophesy tells that Russia will be utterly wiped off the map for its interference. By God.
A working knowledge of Bible prophesy would be advisable for now. Some modern Prophets are False Prophets. Which ones? See: you need to be careful lest you be mis-informed by a false prophet.
What does the Bible teach on these things?
I read a prophesy in many years past, that the United States would so something so heinous that the entire world would come against it. What would that be?
We cannot stop what is playing out. I advise being very prayerful over who you elect this fall. Vote your disgust and anger; or vote with God. What is that? I've seen some things but I will not say. Only this: that in Palestinian culture/blood heritage; the children born are the religion of their blood fathers. Israeli children are the religion of their mothers bloodline.

Can the sins of your great grandparents be held against you?

The Mandela Effect is false. Just another way that Satan is trying to trick you. The bible is true.
stanjett's comment on 2020-07-15 22:02:01:
I don't know about the song but I do know that a famous artist painted a picture of a lamb lying down with a lion. But the picture is incorrect according to the bible. It was a wolf lying down with the lamb in my bible and always was.
stanjett's comment on 2020-07-15 21:39:17:
Do you really believe that God would allow His words (the bible) to be changed? Not possible. My bible is the same today as it was 60 years ago when it was given to me.
Adam's comment on 2020-07-15 20:58:09:
I'm not sure if someone is claiming the KJV has changed or not, but if that's the claim that can be easily resolved by looking any verse up in the 1611 A.D. version which is on this website. People have made this claim a lot and instead of taking a few seconds to verify if their verse has actually changed, some insist that the KJV is somehow wrong and that their memory is never wrong. Personally I trust God's word more than man's word. People should also keep in mind that the English language has changed a lot in 400 years, so in case it's a word being spelled slightly differently, it doesn't mean a translation is corrupted if it updates to the proper spoken language.

I have found many hardly used older Bibles at Goodwill or Salvation Army stores. Keep an eye out.
Shane UOTF's comment on 2020-07-15 17:49:44:
I do understand how people can get things messed up sometimes. But I'm not saying Satan is doing any of this, in fact only God would have that sort of power in my opinion. I can't tell you exactly how, but I know what my Bible used to say and what it now says, and it no longer matches. I was born in 1974, I'm not aware of any of those things you referred to in regards to why I have it mixed up, but I'm going off of what I read in my actual Bible.
Mark 13:10 is a great example, don't you remember "and the gospel must first be preached among all nations"? It now says Published instead of preached. I believe it's the time of great revelation. 2020 vision. Truth is being revealed. Think of the division Paul brought to the churches. The confusion and all the various denominations (Over 38,000).
Well now Paul tells us in 2 Cor. 11:8 how he robbed churches. That was not always in my Bible that way.
Mammas and the pappas, California dreaming song used to say got down on my knees and began to pray, now it says pretend to pray. I don't know why we have alternate realities but I read the Bible dozens of times, I just know it's changed for me. There's no doubt about it and it's in a supernatural way. The big one for me is the Thinker statue with it's fist to it's forehead. I had the statue growing up, yet he never had his fist to his forehead, it's supposedly always been to his mouth and chin. There's never been Stouffer's Stove Top Stuffing, it's always been Kraft Stove Top.
None of this ringing a bell for anyone?
bob Hilt's comment on 2020-07-15 14:54:14:
If satan has the power to go back in time and change the bible (Mandela effect) then he is more powerful than the Lord.
at least those who push this ridiculous theory want us to believe.
God promised to PRESERVE his words and if things were changed, then He failed.
Example: Isaiah 11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
The "lion shall lay down with the lamb" is a lyric made popular by the 1937 song, "Peace in the Valley" written by Thomas A. Dorsey
Lion with lamb was a song
It was first made popular by Red Foley and the Sunshine Boys in 1951 after being recorded by Sam Cooke of the Soul Stirrers in 1950 and rising to limited success. But it wasn't until Elvis Presley recorded the song on his first Christmas Album with the Jordanaires that "Peace in the Valley" received worldwide fame.
On January 6, 1957, Elvis sang "Peace in the Valley" on the Ed Sullivan Show,
After the popularity of Elvis' rendition of the song, many ministers around the nation began integrating the lyrics into their sermons. that is what many remember.

I'm wondering why no one is discussing the fact that the wording in Matthew 7:1 has changed supernaturally, even in print Bibles. It no longer appears to have ever been worded "Judge not, lest ye be judged." in the KJV or any other translation. There are many many others as well.
Like Wine skins now say bottles and
John 3:16 now has "should" where I know it said "shall".
Gen 1:1 now says "Heaven" instead of "heavens" in the KJV.
Isaiah 11:6 "The Lion shall lie down with the lamb..." now says "The Wolf also shall dwell with the lamb..."
So many others as well. So what's happening?
They're calling it The Mandela Effect because some people remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 80's rather than what really happened (2013). I can remember 4 people in the JFK car but now there were 6 when he was shot. There's a book called "Mandela Effect: Friend or Foe" that will help make sense of it. I really think this is a good thing. A sign of the coming golden age. May God's Love Light and Unity shine to all.
Stephen Whiteley's comment on 2015-08-25 09:54:40:
39. Judge not, lest ye be judged Matthew 7:1. Why is this an issue? It seems to me that another word for judgement is meaning. And meaning is only what we assign to be. We are meaning makers. And what we make meaning of, we come to believe and we are what we believe. Even more importantly, when we are judging others, we are also in the habit of judging ourselves. And when we are judging ourselves, we come to believe those self-judgements and that tells us that we are stuck. Another offshoot of judging is that it creates conflict. So you can tell there is stuckness wherever there is conflict. Judgement Conflict. Conflict Stuckness.

Something in me gets very upset when people say we are not supposed to judge each other. Paul said to judge sexual immoral professing believers and not to eat with them, so they return to the right path. Jesus said to judge people by their fruits, evil or good. These are only two of many examples. I believe this part of scripture is about two things: hypocrisy and helping. Jesus says we should not try to cast sin out of our buddy 's life without first casting it out of our own, or we won 't see clearly what is going on in our brother 's life. The Greek word for "cast " being to deliberately hurl. My journal entry yesterday regarding this very verse says: Deliberately hurl sin from your own life, THEN you are qualified to help deliberately hurl sin from other 's lives. God you are awesome, wise and have common sense.
Evod's comment on 2014-12-14 17:15:22:
You can take things, especially scripture, out of context and think you know what something means before considering the setting, or without reading the chapter.. that will give you context. It always comes back to the same thing that people ignore. We all behave differently. This 'judge not ' is meant to be a warning not to be prejudiced towards others because of racial or cultural or even personal differences in the way others behave. In other words it is wrong to judge other 's behavior based on your own standards. This scripture applies to other 's behavior or lifestyle, and not someone 's harm to another.

I looked the word up in the Greek Bible dictionary. To judge a thing there is a separation select Choose to determine To consider think account .To pass sentence on a thing. Judge not that ye be not judged.

JaySun's comment on 2014-07-12 12:10:13:
"Judge not, lest ye be judged. " Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. Be careful what you think and feel and project outward into the world from what is inside your thoughts, heart and mind because the world will become that in which you desire most. As human beings, our power is immense, limitless and all pervading just as the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit 's. Our compassionate brother Jesus Christ forewarned us of what we keep in our hearts and minds and the assessments and judgements we make about our life and the lives of others for our world around will become a direct reflection and manifestation of those judgements that we keep in our hearts and minds. Judge not lest ye be judged, except for Jesus...he can judge though right? Now why would Jesus warn us "judge not lest ye be judged, " if he himself was and is judging us by all of our thoughts, feeling and actions? It would be quite hypocritical for our Lord and Savior to be not practicing what he preached. Feel the words, try not to interpret them. Feel the Love, not analyze the hate.
Kathy's comment on 2014-06-25 12:50:53:
Never take Scripture out of context. Scripture interprets Scripture. Most folks have misjudged what the Scripture is actually saying and have totally missed the point. In fact, they exalt their own opinions above the Word of God. Never take Scripture out of context without knowing what it is really talking about.
