How is it less problematic to believe there’s no moral problem with God creating the world knowing that sin would occur, since He can do what he wants (and whatever he does is perfect and good, and then believe that God allows (Armininians would argue cause) evil he could easily thwart for some other reason than his value for freewill. What would be his reason in your system: for his own glory, making his wrath known? How is that better? How doesn’t that make God a capricious God, arbitrarily frying ants under a magnifying glass for his own jollies?
By contrast, the Arminian God merely buys a magnifying glass for the 5-year-old psychopath, then looks over his shoulder in mock horror as our junior psychopath fries the ants for his own jollies.
