The Fall of Man

We believe that Jesus is God and externally existed along with the Father and the Holy Spirit. We know that the role of Christ was to redeem us from our sins.

But in having that role, wouldn’t the Father acknowledge that sin WOULD enter the world some way or somehow? Christ’s role would have been to redeem the Fall of Man.

Just some questions popping into my head. Thanks for answers in advance!

I’m not sure I understand your questions. But speaking of past or future tense in respect to the Trinity is meaningless, as they are outside time.

All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.
(Rev. 13:8)

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.
(Eph 1:3-4)

Basically Jesus’ nature was that of the redeemer of mankind. Wouldn’t this indicate that God created a world just waiting to sin?

No, his nature is human and divine.

His became incarnate to redeem mankind.

No. It indicates God’s response to our sin.

No, it just means He created a world that He knew would sin of its own free will, deemed its creation to be worthwhile nonetheless, and placed His plan of salvation into play from the beginning. He created His universe in a “state of journeying towards perfection” according to the catechism, that perfection presumably being bound with humans freely coming to choose good over evil-over sin, over disobedience of His will as opposed to Adam & Eve’s disobedience.

The following from the catechism also pertains:

412 But why did God not prevent the first man from sinning? St. Leo the Great responds, "Christ’s inexpressible grace gave us blessings better than those the demon’s envy had taken away."307 And St. Thomas Aquinas wrote, "There is nothing to prevent human nature’s being raised up to something greater, even after sin; God permits evil in order to draw forth some greater good. Thus St. Paul says, ‘Where sin increased, grace abounded all the more’; and the Exsultet sings, ‘O happy fault,. . . which gained for us so great a Redeemer!’"308
