Re: Jesus, God's plan "B" for the human race
I think "plan A" "plan B," etc. is a human contrivance, and are not concepts that apply to God. We layer our plans based on lack of something - wisdom, information, response, etc. The Bible is clear that God lacks nothing. If we had infinite knowledge, if we were soverign and created the universe, if we had infinite wisdom, then we would not need to rely on a thought pattern that is layered with more than one possible outcome.
In some human endevours, we do have enough information to just have a "plan A" for some applications, and in those cases, we do not lack anything in performing that particular application.
But we are finite created beings with finite knowledge, finite wisdom, finite perceptions. God is not a created being, meaning His knowledge HAS to be (by default) infriite wisdom, infinite knowledge, infinite perception. The reason this has to be the default is that one can not mark a boundary or draw a line in eternity.
"Hatred is corrosive of a person's wisdom and conscience; the mentality of enmity can poison a nation's spirit, instigate brutal life and death struggles, destroy a society's tolerance and humanity, and block a nation's progress to freedom and democracy."
