In a state of rebellion, individuals suffer from a totally depraved nature that keeps them alienated from a holy and just God. This depravity, while not making man completely evil, nevertheless corrupts his entire being including his mind, will, body, and spirit. But to what extent does this condition affect the imago Dei? Did sin completely erase God’s image from humankind?
