Was Jesus Plan B?

Adam and Eve leaving the Garden of Eden.
Throughout the course of my mission I have come to find that many people not of our faith believe that the Fall of Adam and Eve was the worst thing that has ever happened and that it thwarted God's "original" plan. I will show you how the Fall of Adam and Eve was not an accident nor was it a mistake, but that it was a crucial and necessary part of God's original plan.

"Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things...But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you..." (1Peter 1:18-20)

This scripture teaches us that Jesus Christ was foreordained, before the world even came into being, to give His "precious blood" for our salvation. So if He was foreordained to be the sacrificial lamb, then what was He going to be sacrificed for if it were for nothing less than the Fall of Man? 

God has a foreknowledge of all things, why would God put two people who were going to fail, and thereby condemn all of us unnecessarily, to lead off His supposed plan of felicity? He didn't "hide" the knowledge from Himself. Nor was He unaware of what would befall mankind. The simple fact of the matter is the Fall of Man was part of His grand plan for us.

The Council in Heaven where Jesus was chosen to be the Savior
Jesus Christ' sacrifice, for us, wasn't "Plan B". It was exactly planned out and was part of God's Original Plan to have us become like Him. I know that Jesus Christ was prepared and was chosen to be our Savior. I love Him and I would invite you all to consider the evidence of this truth for yourselves.
