The Lamb of God slain before the foundation of the world
I am one of those who believe the fall of mankind into sin was not a surprise which caused God to enter into Plan B to try to save some of us. If the Lamb of God was slain before the foundation of the world, then a God who loves us sacrificially is written into the plan, as is the salvation that enables us to know the character of God in this life. The tribulation of living in this flawed creation is part of the knowledge of sin, which will enable us to know what it will be like when we enter a new creation. Deep thoughts, but well defended in the texts. I am studying 2 Tim 1 for this weekends message on restoring the image of God.
