Why would a good God create people when He knows they will be in hell for eternity?
God gives every one a choice to believe and accept Jesus as a personal savior. “...choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve.” (Joshua 24:15)
Regardless of whether or not we understand the ‘hows’ and the ‘whys’ of what happens in life, God will always remain good, just and merciful. Yes, He is all-knowing but in the mystery of God, He gives all those whom He created, a choice to believe or to not believe.
God wants all people to know Him, to believe and trust Him. 2 Peter 3:9 "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance."
Salvation is a matter of man humbling himself (herself) and believing in Jesus because He paid the ultimate price by dying a gruesome death so that our sins would be forgiven. That sounds like a loving God to me!
