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

Including the part where their lack of love, which you had foreknowledge of, condemns them to Hell for eternal suffering? Poppycock.

I think of Hell as being the place where beings who choose to reject God go. This results in a place filled with such people, which, by definition, would cause much suffering. I do not think God made the suffering at all. It is inflicted by those who choose to go there. Sort of like a critical mass of evil, rather than a furnace maintained by God.

And yes, I do think it is great love for God to allow us to make this choice.

I think that the souls of the damned were part of the price paid for love of His children. Is that true?

But also I do think that the damned end up in hell because they aren't afraid enough. To be afraid of hell is a very good thing.

But I thought God loved us all equally.
