Humans have free will
God gave us free will. God accepts evil as a necessary consequence of human free will.
God needs evil for now, but one day he will destroy it.
Evil is all part of God’s plan. Once God has used it to achieve its purpose, he will destroy it. God wields evil as a divine tool for his own reasons. All the major monotheistic religions have a place for evil. In Judaism, there is “damnation”, in Christianity there is “hell”, and in Islam, there is “requital and the fire”. This deliberate place for evil indicates that evil has a purpose in God's plan. Once its purpose has been served, God will eliminate it because he is all-good.
This appears to go against the idea of God's omnipotence. If God is omnipotent, independent of any preconditions, then he has the ability to realise his objectives without the need for any other tool or being. If he cannot achieve his goals without evil, then he is not omnipotent. If he can achieve his goals without evil but chooses not to, then he is not all-good. As such, we must accept that God is either not omnipotent, or not all-good.

[P1] God is omnipotent and omniscient and benevolent. [P2] Therefore, he ordains evil for a reason. [P3] Once evil has served its purpose, he will eliminate it.
[Rejecting P2] If God is omnipotent, he does not need evil to realise his objectives. If God is benevolent, then he would not use evil out of choice.
