Adam and Eve's abuse of their human freedom in disobeying God's command. As a consequence they lost the grace of original holiness and justice and became subject to the law of death; sin became universally present in the world; and every person is born into this condition. This sin separated mankind from God, darkened the human intellect, weakened the human will, and introduced into human nature an inclination toward sin. With Original Sin, man lost the inner harmony between his mind, his will, and his passions. Also, after this "First Sin," every person would be destined to die.
