“The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the fatherâ€™s iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the sonâ€™s iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself.”(Eze 18:20)
The Apostle Paul also teaches that we are to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling (Phil 2:12)
Each of us is responsible for him or herself in the sense that we are to repent of our own sins when we become aware of it. However, there is something to be said about national repentance and redemption. There is much proof of this in Scripture. How are we to understand and apply this in our lives?
