I don't think you're being picky at all. I believe your point is well taken and well stated. This issue has to do with the design and intent of the atonement. Sure, God knew that crumbs would fall from the table but this is a bi-product of the atonement and not some teleological end.
Ron,

Thanks for the affirmation. Perhaps I can make my view even clearer by simply saying that when Christ hung on the cross, the names of all whom the Father gave Him and for whom he suffered were impressed upon His mind, heart and soul and none other. It was for them whom He came, it was for them that He lived a perfectly righteous life, it was for them that He suffered with agony beyond the ability of any human to comprehend and it was for them and to them that He sent His Spirit to apply all that He merited for them.

In His grace..... and a Blessed Christmas to you and your house as well!
