First Adam


This is a continuation of the theme developed in Whom the Lord Loves. Again, the question is free will. Did Adam have a choice, not to sin? If he did, then he might not have sinned. What then of God's plan? What of the Lamb, slain from the foundation of the world? I explore the idea with the fantasy that Adam did not sin. Again, the upshot is that regardless of the actions of any single human or humanity as a whole, God's plan will come to pass. Complete free will, within God's sovereignty.

I like to think of it this way: You hold out a piece of candy to a child. You know the child is going to take it. You're not forcing the child to take it, or hindering its choice to choose or not choose to take the candy, but you know what it will do. So, you plan accordingly for what you know will happen.
Same way with God. He knows what we will do, but we still have the choice whether or not to do it. He just knows what we'll do anyway, because He knows us better even than we could ever know the child mentioned above.
