my honest assessment is this. He fulfilled his destiny. He was always dead but before he died he came to a saving grace knowledge of God. Remember that while we reason like a man God thinks of eternity.
The Molinist answer to this question I believe would be something like this:
First we must define God's ultimate parameter and that is, IMO, that people come to a free will knowledge of Him.
Having said that I will lay out what Molinism posits or at least as I interpret it in as simplistic a way as I can
God has 3 different types of knowledge which I will call His knowledge of could happen, would happen, and will happen.
Lets start with the overall example of Situation A: where we must choose either X or not X
1. could happen gives God the knowledge of what is possible absolutely. For example, it is not possible to do both X and not X. Could happen essentially lays out necessary truths. Through this knowledge God formulates all possible world's that he could create.
2. would happen gives God the knowledge of what will occur if we we find ourselves in Situation A. Through this knowledge God's choices are then narrowed from all possible worlds to all feasible worlds. The reason this is so is because of our presupposition that God wishes to maintain our free will. The implication is that if we are in Situation A, God knows, for example, that we will choose X even if His desire is for us to choose not X.
3. will happen gives God the knowledge, once God decides which world to create, of exactly what will occur in that world.
That being said, lets examine a possible reason for this situation.
God may know(through his middle knowledge) that, by being in Situation A, Person Z will freely choose God. But being in Situation A, Person Z will die.
God is not forced to create this world unless no other world exists in which Person Z will freely choose God. What I mean to say is, it may be the case that, unless Person Z finds himself in Situation A, then in no other situation will Person Z to freely choose to come to a saving knowledge of God. If that is the case, since Gods overriding goal, as I stated above, is to have Person Z come to a free will knowledge of Him, then God has a duty to create that world.
This would I think be the Molinist response to such a scenario.
