Unfortunately, faced with temptation, Adam used his human will to act separately from God’s Divine Will.  His sinful disobedience lost the original holiness and justice he had received from God, not only for himself but for all humanity (CCC 416).  The Fall separated all of mankind from God’s Divine Love, ushering sin and death into the world. No longer living in God’s Divine Will, man is always divided between doing good and evil within himself (CCC 1707) and is forever inclined to sin (CCC 418).
