Getting into sin is a little like getting into a swimming pool. When you first get into a pool, it feels cold and uncomfortable. However, after just a few minutes, you get used to the water temperature and it doesn’t feel uncomfortable anymore. In fact, if you stay in the pool for very long, it may even get to the point to where it is uncomfortable to leave the pool.
When someone first gets into the pool of sin, it usually feels uncomfortable. However, in just a little time, they get used to sin and it doesn’t bother them anymore (1 Tim 4:2; Jer. 6:15). In fact, if they stay in the pool of sin for very long, they will likely get to the point to where they don’t want to leave the pool at all (John 3:19-20). If they do get out of the pool, many of them will soon go back to it (2 Pet. 2:22).
