God laid out His plan and in it, He saw the need for man, “having known you before the foundations of the world" - Eph. 1:4. In doing this He wasn’t flippant in His decision nor was He hoping for things to work out. God knew His exact plan and the exact result He would receive, having created and "knowing the frame of a man" - Ps. 103:14. How do we reconcile the truth of a perfect God creating a “flawed” man? Wouldn’t Adam being created in the image of God not know of satan and his rebellious nature and therefore refuse any deception from him. As parents, we warn our kids not to listen or hang out with troubled and rebellious children. Some may even say; Eve did not know and that’s why she was fooled or being a woman did not have the spirit of authority.
