How are we loved before we are created?
God foreknew person X would come to be and loved him?
or is a more appropriate answer is corporate and relational
i.e. God loves Christ
and loves anyone in Christ and through Christ
- which works for both those in the image of the image (humanity), and in the image (Christians)
why does my father love my son? because my son is his grandson
where does his love for his grandson lie before my son is born?
this is true 'corporate' thinking.... and does not take anything away from persons
