THE PARADOX OF GOD'S FORGIVENESS FOR OUR SINS, JUDGEMENT AND REWARDS...

If the new covenant is all about one's personal relationship with God and responsibility, why then are we still linked to the original sin of our first parents- Adam and Eve in the current age?

Would we then conclude that, humans will always carry the righteousness or wickedness of their parents? Or can we then stand connected to the transgressions of our forefathers?

This brings a big paradox about God's forgiveness...
Not only does God forgive our sins, but He also FORGETS our sins! He chooses not to remember our sins for HIS own sake! Isaiah 43:25, "I, even I, am he that blotted out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins." (Also see Hebrews 10:17)

The second paradox is about Noah and the Ark when God destroyed the world through the flood to begin a fresh. If we belong to the generation of Noah; "the favoured" why then are we still linked to the sin of Adam and Eve?

As a Christian, I think God would have allowed a new dawn of sinless humans after the new generation of Noah during the flood... It's like after the flood, God had done a second creation free from sin...

How did we get connected to the sin of Adam and Eve after the flood? If God forgives and forgets, we should not be dogged by the sin of Adam and Eve.

Besides, if we shall be rewarded according to our deeds during Jesus's second coming, then the idea of God forgetting about our bad deeds is contradictory because those who truly do MUCH good will get the BEST crown during the day of judgment as said in the book of Revelation 22:12.

According to my small understanding of my Christian faith, a repentant murderer cannot get a better crown compared to a righteous man or woman if we follow what the book Revelation is saying about the final judgment. Let us enlighten one another on the said. What is your understanding?
