The guest, Robin Parry, regards it as peculiar for God to create human beings for the purpose of destroying them. It has always seemed to me that Paul answered this question very directly:
"One of you will say to me: 'Then why does God still blame us? For who is able to resist his will' But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’” Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for special purposes and some for common use?
What if God, although choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath—prepared for destruction? What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory."
This might seem morally repulsive from a traditionalist view – God creates people just to torture them and all the ones he saved are supposed to give him more glory for that than if he had just not made them in the first place? From an annihilationist view, this doesn’t seem morally repulsive at all. In destruction, the objects of God’s wrath are brought back to the same place God made them – nothing.
