Since Arminians believe that God foreknows who will respond to the gospel message and elects them on that basis, the God of the Arminians must be cruel, arbitrary, unfair, and unjust. Billions of people have never heard the gospel message and therefore cannot respond in faith. Only a cruel, arbitrary God would base election on human response, and then not give the mass of humanity an opportunity to hear the gospel. God is completely arbitrary in allowing some to hear the gospel message while withholding it from others. This is cruel and unfair, and proves that God is partial and shows favoritism. To those who actually hear the gospel message, God is unloving. What kind of God creates human beings in which he knows all along that they will reject his offer of salvation and be condemned to hell. This God is vindictive and sadistic. A loving God would never create people he knew would go to hell. That he knew what they would do with the gospel message, and created them anyway, shows that God is unloving.
