The sins of the father shall be visited upon the son. This is simple if you look at the way in which we teach our children then we teach them to sin as we sin. Thus they watch our ways everyday to figure out how to behave and if we do not set appropriate examples they do not learn appropriate ways. Then to introduce the things that society teaches the children experience the sins of the father in multitude. with each passing generation the world decays in morals and the children decay in moral values a little more thus showing this exact statement the signs of the father shall be visited upon the son a thousand times. we see this everyday and will continue to as long as we do not stop the way the world functions.

Correction:

Exodus 20:5 (New International Version)You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,


They leave off verse 6 which says:  Exodus 20:6 (New International Version)but showing love to a thousand {generations} of those who love me and keep my commandments.

The same is done with Deuteronomy 5:9, leaving off the completion of the sentence:
 Deuteronomy 5:9-10 (King James Version)9Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,
10And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.


 Deuteronomy 24:16 (New International Version) Fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their fathers; each is to die for his own sin.

 Ezekiel 18:20 (New International Version) The soul who sins is the one who will die. The son will not share the guilt of the father, nor will the father share the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him.



 Ezekiel 18:4 (New International Version) For every living soul belongs to me, the father as well as the son-both alike belong to me. The soul who sins is the one who will die.

 John 9:1-3 (New International Version) As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?"
"Neither this man nor his parents sinned," said Jesus, "but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.


The sins of the father are not passed on to his offspring. Each person is responsible for his or her own actions and own actions and salvation. Just because the father is an alcoholic does not mean his offspring are going to be alcoholics, for instance, though it is a common misconception. The same goes for a parent who is an abuser. The child may have no tendency toward abuse and may even despise abuse. There were clearly two schools of thought in the Old Testament, but Jesus taught that each of us is responsible for our actions and that the message of God is love.

 1 John 4:8 (New International Version)Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.


God gave his message out of love, not out of hate.
