    It's never God's "desire that any should perish" (2Pet 3:9)--but that "all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth (1Tim 2:4). Though God knew most would choose evil (Mat 7:13, 14), He did it for those He knew would choose Him (Luke 15:7, 10). If even one results in such a heavenly affect, image a multitude (Rev 7:9), which are still few in comparison to the lost (many).


    Good question, but it cannot be denied that God knew they would partake. He had to start at that point, and in that manner! Keep looking at His omniscience and it should become clearer.

    Blessings to your Family!

    God doesn't need self glorification. He is who He is whether we are here or not.
    What is important for us to remember is that God gave us the ability to choose what we do.

    He gave us guidelines, instructions and commandments in order to help us find our own way.
    If we choose to go the wrong way, it will not be His failing, it will be ours

    Hi, and appreciate your reply! It's my understanding that everything begins with the Father, including Him manifesting His own glory (Jhn 12:28), unless you're meaning something else; and this isn't just to oppose your comment but sharing what I believe.

    Blessings!
