The Ways of the Lord are Not Fair

Nehemia discusses Ezekiel 18 & 33. Why did the Israelites say, "The ways of the Lord is unfair" (Ezekiel 33:17)? What did they mean by, "The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge?" (Ezekiel 18:2). Are children punished for the sins of their fathers? Can a person be forgiven for a life of sin? How does the prophet Ezekiel explain the statement in the Ten Commandments about God "visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children" (Exodus 20:5)?

    Mr. Nehemia Gordon, i like to ask you about your study “The Ways of the Lord are Not Fair” ini Ezekiel 18 & 33. if a son shall not die for the iniquity of his father, why in 2 Samuel 21, Saul’s 7 sons died because sin of their father?

      Apparently Saul’s sons were “bloodthirsty” (2 Sam 21:1).
