Sins of the fathers

This interpretation clarifies the oft-repeated saying of the Old Testament about God “visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.” The meaning now begins to take shape. The sins of the Adam’s generation (the Golden Age), are to be visited upon his children’s children through all subsequent periods, even to the third and fourth (Bronze and Iron) generations. Opting to translate these passages using the term ‘race’ instead of ‘generation’, the meaning becomes easier to grasp and conveys what we have said about each age producing (or ‘generating’) a certain human type, and so we would have the ‘race of Adam’ and so on, down to the third and fourth generation, or ‘unique human type generated by the ambient conditions of the Age’.
