"In the first place, remember, humanity is not an aggregate of individuals but an organic unity, one race, one family.  Angels, on the other hand, all stand side-by-side, independently of one another.  They were all created at the same time and are not the products of procreation.  Among them a divine judgment such as was pronounced upon all humanity in Adam would not have been possible: everyone stood or fell on his own.  
But that is not how it is among us.  God created all of us from one man (Acts 17:26); we are not a heap of souls piled on a piece of ground, but all blood relatives of one another, coonected to one another by a hoset of ties, thereofre conditioning one another and bieng conditioned by one another."

Bavinck, my love.
