Why would God create a murderer or rapist?

God did not create people to murder or rape. The decision to murder or rape was based on an individual’s freewill.

If God did not create murderers, then Moses or David would not have been born since both murdered someone.

If God did not create people who murdered or raped, what about other sins? Where would you draw the line? Should God not create people who steal or speed? What about those who don’t go to church or who kick dogs?

If that were the case, God wouldn’t have created anyone.

God created people to love them. Even some murderers or rapists end up repenting and loving God. God’s desire is that everyone establishes a relationship with him and no one commits any sin. However, God must allow people freedom to choose and use their freewill. Unfortunately some use that freewill to choose to hurt others.
