The deadliest of of all lies are the inheritable lies.

Presenting the Inheritable Lie, through which the sins of the father are visited upon the son.

All of mankind fell as the result of one original sin. The lie was told by the serpent, who was somehow trusted by the woman. It was passed on to the man by the woman, who was trusted by the man. It represented a failure, of both man and woman, to properly think, keeping in mind the clear instructions of God, and thus properly discerning the wrongdoing right in front of their eyes. A lie is opposition to truth, and God is the center of all truth, and indeed is the Truth. Sin is opposition to God. All sin, of whatever variety, involves acceptance of a lie.

The sin of Adam and Eve was the first inheritable sin, which is called Original Sin, and which remains an inherited sin staining the soul of all unbaptized people today. An inheritable sin may be thought of as a cultural sin, because it can infect a whole people, or a whole nation, or a whole culture, just as the sin of Adam and Eve infected all of mankind.

In the days before the flood, men turned from God, they practiced iniquity with increasing impunity, they raised their sons in iniquity, and they all became so disgusting to God that He destroyed them with the flood.

Something similar happened with Sodom and Gomorrah. Some may argue that the children there didn't know any better, but the bottom line was that a whole people had been made disgusting to God, and He destroyed them all. The children knew only what their elders taught them, and what they were taught was the goodness of sin and the joyful practice of iniquity. Thus, they were disgusting.
