Origin and Application:
Fall from grace, or the Fall, is associated with the incident when both Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden of Eden after they had eaten the forbidden fruit. From then onwards, men had to work hard for a living and women to suffer from the pain of childbirth.
But the exact phrase originates from the New Testament where Paul the apostle reminds new Christian converts in Galatia (i.e. present-day Turkey) that if they seek to justify themselves by observing the law, they have fallen away from the grace of God. (Galatians 5:4). In Christianity, grace is not to be earned by our works, but is freely given by God. To “earn” grace by observing the law simply means neglecting God’s grace upon us.
