I think the "fall" in the context of Faust is his desire for knowledge over wisdom. This blind desire shut Faust out of any sort of Grace that can be connected with God. Also, despite his good angel's pleas, Faust continually chooses to ignore God's grace and forgiveness by indulging in silly pranks and worldly desires.
