The Incarnation–God’s Plan B?

Posted in religion with tags , , , , , , , on November 16, 2008 by airtightnoodle

Most Christians believe that God created a perfect world that was then sullied by human sin.  As a result, atonement had to be made. 

Does this view make the Incarnation contingent on human sin?  By sinning, did humanity earn an Incarnation which otherwise never would have happened?  What are your thoughts?
