Yes, everything.

Quote:By the way, being swayed by the serpent and eating the fruit was done by man before the fall. It was a mistake. How does that work?
How does it work? Simple, God created Man with the ability to reason and with free will. God gave a commandment not to do something. A tempter presented a choice and a new thought. Man WILLED to be contrary to God. It was not a mistake...it was deliberate. It was so deliberate it has affected us all. To say there was a flaw in Man from the beginning is to say God did not create something perfect, ie, that God is not perfect.

Quote:How can one increase in wisdom if one is already omniscient ?
Luke 2:52 Wrote:And Jesus advanced in wisdom, and age, and grace with God and men.

Haydock Commentary Wrote:Ver. 52. Not that he was wiser at any future period of his life, than he was at the moment of his conception, but this is said, because he chose to manifest increasing signs of wisdom as he increased in years. --- In the same manner also he increased in grace, by displaying, as he advanced in age, the gifts of grace with which he was endowed; and by this excited men to the praise of God, from the consideration of favours God had bestowed upon him; and thus he conduced to the honour of God, and the salvation of men. (St. Gregory) --- The sun, always equally brilliant in itself, is said to increase in splendour, till it has reached its meridian brilliancy.

I wrote it elsewhere recently. Jesus was a perfect Man. That Jesus accepted the limitations of the human body during His ministry does not mean those limitations were absolute. It was a choice. That Jesus was an infant, a child and a man means that He had the nature of Man, but it was a choice. Mistakes are only possible because of imperfection and imperfection is only possible because of sin and sin is only possible because of choice.
