Before creation, no man spent a lifetime running from the purpose of his creation, seeking his own ungodly selfish end, and die not only rejecting his Savior and God but rejecting the treasure of an eternity in Glory. Could it be that when God planned to create mankind that he knew that man would fall and that his nature would be to seek
