This question is difficult, and has no simple answer. Part of the problem is this, how can we apply our morality to God? We do not stand in judgement over Him. It's rather like a two year old judging his parents motivation for what they do. Whenever we ask why God did this or that,we are usually asking something beyond our comprehension! Unless He tells us why,(ie. He sent His son because He loved us)we jhave very little chance of knowing why.

This is where Calvanism and Arminianism both fall down, they are both trying to answer the "why" behind God's action. They each provide human logical explanations of God's behavior, and always they fall short of the glory of God.
