Should God Be Held Morally Accountable for Knowingly Creating a World Where People Would Sin?

#STRaskStand to Reason

Questions about whether we should hold God morally accountable for knowingly creating a world where people would sin, whether the crucifixion of Jesus was God’s way of taking some personal responsbility for his part in bringing about sin through creation, and why God creates people he knows will go to Hell.

* If we would hold someone morally accountable for giving a suicidal person access to a loaded gun, shouldn’t we hold God morally accountable for creating a world where he knew people would sin?

* Was the crucifixion of Jesus God’s way of taking some personal responsibility for his part in bringing about sin he knew would take place if he created Adam and Eve?

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