No person need stay the way he or she is. One's life can be made over through the transforming work of Christ.
Paul says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come."
The Bible pictures man in his unredeemed state as an enemy of God. When a person is saved the basic relationship is changed from an enemy of God to a friend of God.
