But how can we know that it's true? Maybe God simply can't create any world that He wishes?

Why can't God be "all good?" William Lane Craig's question, similar to the one above is, how can we truly know that God would prefer a world with only good? Perhaps God is "all good" but he simply can't create a world without evil because he doesn't have the power over it. Perhaps God is "all good" but he must discipline us in certain ways like a parent must. Good parents don't discipline children for the sake of being evil. They do it for the greater good of the child. They may even dislike disciplining their children.
