Apologetics question: Why does God create people who are going to go to Hell?
#2
Free will is, of course, the answer. As to the predestination angle, the best explanation that I've ever read was from C.S. Lewis. He said that man, in his limited perception of time and eternity, is confused about predestination. We see it as God deciding that a soul is going to hell in the future. In reality, he points out, God is outside time, and what he sees is every moral choice we make at the same instant. Being omniscient he sees our final choice before we are even born. He doesn't make that choice for us, but he sees it and foreknows it.
