Generational Sins, Soul Ties, Curses

Breaking free from generational sins, soul ties, and curses enables us to realize the gifts, passions, and truth God has given us.


In this last session of our series, we're going to talk about three subjects that bring a lot of questions and even opposition: generational sins, soul ties, and curses. No matter where we go in the westernized world there will always be skepticism about these truths. Even I was very skeptical earlier in life, and it took a lot of close looking at the Scriptures before I could buy into these issues.

Other cultures around the world still have a sense of generational relationships.

I think we see this ultimately in Romans 5:15: "For if many died through one man's trespass, much more have the grace of God and ...
