Why would the creator make another God? And send him to be born, live on Earth and be subject to sin?
God did not make another God, for as the scriptures tell us repeatedly that there is not another God, never was another God and never will be another God.
Isaiah 42:8 "I am the Lord: that is my name; and my glory I will not give to
another, neither my praise to graven images."
John 17:5 "And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was."
See also John 6:38 - I came down from heaven; John 6:51 - I am the living bread that came down from heaven; John 6:62 - son of man ascend up where he was before; John 8:23 - I am from above .... I am not of this world; and many more.
Out of the many verses of scripture which say the same as these two verses above, these perhaps say it the clearest. God Will NOT share His Glory, but in John 17, Jesus says several things.
God came down to be born on the Earth, and to undergo the same temptations to sin as you and I (He did not sin, and the bible shows that with the Grace of God we can also overcome sin just as Jesus overcame.) because he had promised to do so in Genesis.
