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

You know the question of this thread.

There is a need if you don't want souls in Hell.

I didn't say anything about worthless, the OP (and myself also very clearly) are talking about damnation, not 'worth' ???

Him deciding (hypothetically) to only populate human bodies with the souls of saints is not a violation of free will, any more than populating a single body with the soul of a saint is a violation of free will.

If he can create one soul that will go to heaven (and he has and does), and that is not a violation of Augustine's free will to have created his soul thusly, why not all souls this way? You're stating what you wish to 'prove' by simply saying 'that's a violation of free will' ...how so?
