I was asked this question by a person who believes in a single “Godhead” and I’m not really sure how to respond:
“If you believe that the Saviour of Mankind always existed with God the Father in Heaven, did God know that ‘man would fall?’ If God didn’t know, then why would there be Jesus? Dosen’t this indicate that Jesus came to be after creation and the fall of man? What would be Jesus’ role if man didn’t fall?”
I told him that the Bible was very explicit in saying that Jesus was not “made up” just before the Virgin Birth. I don’t really know how to answer the question though. It got me thinking. Would a Triune God indicate a pre-planned role for all three persons of the Trinity? I’m just really confused now. Usually when I’m doing my amature apologetics, I’m never really shaken and I almost always have a decent answer, But this question really stumps me. Please help!
