Paul didn’t teach that God created some people solely for the purpose of destroying them.
Paying attention to all Paul said on the matter would give a clearer perspective on this.
Yes! this speaks from Predestination but Man’s choice isn’t excluded in it.
Unless, when Paul spoke of vessels unto honor & dishonor, he won’t have added “if a man purges himself of these…”
The emphasis of Romans 9-11 is Predestination, because the fate of the Jewish people according to God’s will is the point, the whole counsel doesn’t exclude Choice.

Recently I saw an old movie where a very young boy was to be hung by a supposedly mean political lord because he belonged to a wrong group, Pirates.
I was curious to see if the plot would be written in such a way as the protagonist would save him before his death, but it wasn’t…
The young lad actually hung and died, and I couldn’t help but think:
The irreligious/atheist blames God for creating the kind of world where evil is possible and even present, such evil as the death of a child, yet in their own purview of creativity create such world themselves.
