So I rephrase..It was not the kid's sin but his parents' or his grandparents'
You are absolutely right when you say ..''What sin could a 4 year old commit '' , there is no sin !
Oh man, I so DO NOT believe this, even if it is written in the bible. What kind of voodoo religion is this? "visiting the iniquity of the fathers". That is is god I don't believe in. It goes against everything that is right and innocent. Punishing a child for the sins of the fathers.
