It is not always easy to know precisely where the ‘‘sin’’ is or what the morally right solution is. Yet despite this, we sense the reality of sin, of brokenness, and of the injustice and cruelty that we people do to one another. Second, and less obviously, there is a deeper dynamism of sinfulness inherent in the human condition that can appear in times of sickness. Here distinctions between THE DIGNITY OF HUMAN LIFE 21 sinfulness and created human ﬁnitude blur. Not all limitations are sin or sin’s results.
But ‘‘fundamental option’’ does not do away with the possibility of mortal sin, the possibility of choosing death instead of life. Nor does it imply that real sinning is only internal, that those who may cut themselves off from God and from neighbor must do so by some kind of deep introspective decision that has no direct connection with others in the real world. It is true that the Bible, and all of moral theology, is clear that sin is ultimately a violation of God’s holiness. But the same Jewish and Christian tradition proclaims loudly that sins of injustice, greed, and lust against other persons are equally sins against the holiness of God, precisely because God has created humanity in God’s own image and likeness, has predestined it to share divine life, and has established that destiny through grace.

It is important to know that there never was a time when creation was not ﬁnite. Sometimes we get the idea from certain interpretations of Genesis that in the beginning life was totally without struggle, without work—indeed, without growth and maturation. Education was instant, love easy, healing unnecessary. ’’ Had there been no sin, there would have been no work, no reading, no art, no struggle to create, no medicine, no progress or regress, no tripping and falling.
