Good article on sin. Obviously we are all generally broken by sin, but just because we sin does not mean we are terrible people. We sin, we fail, but that does not mean we are utterly disgusting to God. We are simply existing as we were born, with the stain of Original Sin. Through Christ, we are again made beautiful and we are able to find merit before God through Christ. Hence, yes we will fall from time to time, but through Christ, we overcome all brokenness.

The article, I’m not ‘broken’, thanks – I’m just an ordinary sinner, by Mark Woods states,
“Every so often something catches your eye on social media and makes you think, ‘I wonder.’
Today it was the word ‘brokenness’. I’m not sure it was occurring more frequently than usual, but I Googled it. It’s almost always used in Christian circles, and always approvingly.
We are broken people. God loves us in our brokenness. We have to acknowledge our brokenness. Jesus redeems us in our brokenness. Healthy churches are those where people know they’re broken. People need to be healed from sexual brokenness. Etc, etc.”
