Then why create something disharmonious? If the initial state is perfect harmony and then you purposefully create a universe which is less than you ( Satan was prior to the Fall) are you not intentionally diminishing yourself and rejecting your own perfection. Was this triune being more or less after the atonement?
If God is GOD then He is the greatest thing possible, He needs nothing or wants for anything and IF He is a relational being, a baing of love, He lives to share and nurture that love and has doen so in His creation, the universe.
That the universe is NOT prefect doesn't diminish it one bit since, we don't know what the final stateof the universe will be.
For all we know, the being we call God may not have started off as perfect be evolved to such and He knows that will be the universes final state also and we must evolved through "chaos to get to order".
You state that God created the universe less than perfect as Himself, yes, indeed, as all created things are less than there creator.
BUT could have the perfect being created the perfect creation? will if onlu God is perfect than creation can't be or else it would be God.
We are getting to the old " can God create a rock heavt enough he can't lift" fallacy.
The issues is though, putting aside the CAN, why would He create a universe that was not perfect? why create a universe that must evolve to, possibly, become "perfect" ( or as close as possible)?
Maybe because that is the only way it can be done?
