From the catholic catechism,:
“Behind the disobedient choice of our first parents lurks a seductive voice, opposed to God, which makes them fall into death out of envy”.
I have a hard time accepting the second part of the statement above. It sounds like the “devil made me do it”. If the devil made us fall how can we be held accountable. The way I see it, we made ourselves fall as we gave in to temptation. I don’t think the devil made us do anything. We were disobedient and it is/was our choice. Can anyone shead some light on this,please? thanks.
