Why would God create a soul he knows will go to Hell?

The answer lies in the form of your question.  You say why would God create souls that go to hell. Souls don’t do anything.  Rather, the faculty of free will does something to the souls God creates.  God proposes, our free will disposes.

God only gets the rap for two gifts, creating souls and giving them free will to love Him.  Should said souls not use their freedom to Love Him, said souls dispose of themselves.  God doesn’t dispose of them. 

God’s foreknowledge of our free will choice to litter hell with our souls does little to indict Him of littering.  The crime of littering hell is all ours.  Likewise, police prosecute those who actually litter, not the companies that manufacture the litter. – Cheers, Albert Cipriani
