Incarnation and the Continuity of God’s Plan

February 19, 2010

Sin is not more powerful than God’s eternal plan to unite us with Christ.

The Incarnation is not an afterthought — a second plan intended to rectify the first, supposedly thwarted when man sinned. Of course sin put man on a major detour, one might say, in realizing God’s plan. But sin is not an insurmountable roadblock. Sin is not more powerful than God’s eternal plan to unite us with Christ. God’s plan for man and for the universe continues in spite of sin.
