Why is the world so evil?
Here's the answer:
The world is evil because of sin. In fact, sin is the cause of all evil.
God did not make Adam and Eve sin—they chose to. The Devil, who took on the form of a serpent, tricked Adam and Eve (see Genesis 3:4–5), but Adam and Eve are the ones who picked the fruit from the tree and ate it. Because of this, sin came into the world.
Fortunately, God sent His Son, Jesus, to die as a sacrifice for our sins so we can be forgiven. The most important thing is that you believe in Jesus, because believing in Him and what He did for us is the only way we can be forgiven of our sins and one day live with Him in heaven.

We often hear about violence, abuse, and people hurting each other. Sometimes the world seems evil and dangerous. Where does evil come from? Evil comes out of people’s hearts. Because of sin, people live separated from God. As long as people are separated from God, there will be evil in the world.
"Don't let evil overcome you. Overcome evil by doing good" (Romans 12:21).
"Sin entered the world because one man sinned. And death came because of sin. Everyone sinned, so death came to all people" (Romans 5:12).
