According to Kierkegaard the source of evil in the world is not the first action of the first man (Adam) but the first action of any of us. The prerequisite of evil is the jump from innocence to freedom. This jump leads to first evil action and it opens way to religious faith. It is also way to real existence. The fear is the evidence of sin. Kierkegaard's redefinition of original evil leads to recognition of our own role in appearing sin in the world and seeks some rescue in religious faith. Keeping innocence is impossible for humans. The consciousness of our own sin is according to Kierkegaard the highest form of self-knowledge.
