Everybody is a little bit uncomfortable in their own skin. Since Adam fell in the garden, we have all experienced a weird kind of awkwardness of the soul. People born in sin cannot feel any other way.
This is also why there is so much hope in the Gospel. The LORD knew our struggles so He gave us the solution for our problem (John 3:16). But connecting to Christ and being transformed by Christ is not an easy process.
Think of sin like a dirty drop you put in a clear bottle of water and it discolors the entire contents of the bottle. This is a picture of how sin makes us totally depraved.
Sin comes into our system, so to speak, at conception and totally defiles every ounce of us—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. We are completely corrupt. There is not a microscopic part of us that has not been affected by sin.
Each person gets a drop. There are no exceptions for people born in Adam, and to complicate matters, each person is impacted differently. This is one of the mysteries of sin.
After you mix in the shaping influences of sinful parents and a sinful culture, you will not know what you will have in a child until he/she is fully grown.
Then you throw in religion, which can be heretical, nominal, authentic, or a combination of the three. All of these things can send a person reeling for years, to where he or she is never able to gain a sound-biblical-religious-normalcy. This is every person’s battle.
For some, the twisted-ness of sin has to do with sexuality. Whether it is inherent from Adam or through other shaping influences, certain people struggle with gender related issues. This does not make them weird. They are normal—in the sense that we all struggle with many sinful things.
I do not look down on LGBT people because I have my own version of twisted-ness. It would be intellectually dishonest and biblically out-of-bounds to think my sin is a better or more acceptable strain of the devil’s evil poison. Which is worse:
