The Bible is a Christian holy book that may be the hardest to understand but the book of 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, "All scriptures are given by inspiration of God and are profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work."
This means that we have no choice but search the word of God, diligently understand it and mine all the treasures that it has for our well being. Pastors and other men of God help with interpreting some of the scriptures for us to understand more.
However, there are Bible verses that seem to contradict each other and make believers confused on what to follow.
For example, the book of Deuteronomy 24:16 says, "Parents are not to be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their parents; each will die for their own sin."
On the other hand, the book of Numbers 14:18 says, "The Lord is slow to anger , abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sins of the parents to the third and fourth generation."
Deuteronomy may be telling us that everyone will carry their own cross with their sins while Numbers is warning us to be careful with what we do because the repercussions will not just affect us but generations to come too.
Either way, this is confusing because the Bible verses contradict each other. We are left with questions of whether we should not worry about our parent's sins or not.
