"RE: TH, Why Jesus"

Hi TH and all. first I wasn't sure where you were going with your post. I'm not used to being called a "critter". Creation and in His image I like better. Somehow, even with complete foreknowledge of all of the billions of people that are in hell right now and the billions yet to go, God doesn't look at all that He has created and say it was a "mistake". God had a plan before the heavens and even one angel was ever created and saw "Everything" and saw that His plan was perfect! I got the impression, from what you wrote, that Jesus was a created being. I have read, and I am not sure where, that the Father gave Jesus to have life within Himself. But to be clear, scripture says that Jesus, the Word, has forever been and will forever be. John 1:1, 1:14, 1John 5:7 and Is 9:6. Three separate persons, three separate deities, yet ONE. Wish I knew the old Hebrew and Greek. I think if I could, in love, say anything about what you posted, I would ask you to rethink the first part and say it clearer. Now, before I too get called on to rewrite this, I will stop. Blessings. Steve W.
