Are you saying you believe that God made some people good, some flawed, others weak, and some other evil? They serve as counterpoints, background for the good people he loves to operate?

Are you saying that if we act flawed, then we are flawed? If we act evil, we are evil? If we act good, then we are good? How do evil creations earn God's love? Do they reap what they sow, even if it's good?
