Ephesians1: 4 (KJV) According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

Before the ‘foundation of the world’ we were chosen so we must have existed then? ‘In him’ sounds like we were inside God to me. I do not subscribe to the view that God is projecting who we are going to be? And then managing this projection.This makes little sense to me.
