God did not create evil, but God did allow evil to enter the world as the consequence for sin after humankind’s rebellion against God. (Isaiah 14:12-14; Ezekiel 28:12-19)
Why do innocent people suffer?
People suffer because we live in a sin-stained world. However, in one sense there are no truly innocent people, so no innocent people suffer.

Why is Jesus Christ so important?
Jesus Christ, God’s Son, is the only one able to forgive our sins, because He alone paid the price. His life in exchange for ours. (Romans 8:1-3)
Can someone like me really change?

How does someone actually become a Christian?
By receiving Jesus Christ, His provision for sin, His power for living, and His indwelling presence forever. His offer of forgiveness and new life is open to any and all who will ask for it. The only thing one needs to do to become a Christian is simply accept the free gift God offer in his Son. To do that you must: a) admit you’re a sinner in need of forgiveness; (Romans 3:23; 1 John 2:1-2) b) be willing to turn away from sin and cooperate with God to make changes; (Luke 24:46-47) c) believe that Jesus Christ completed the work of salvation through His death and resurrection; (Romans 10:9; 1 Corinthians 17-23) and d) personally receive Jesus Christ as forgiver and leader (1 John 1:9; Acts 4:12).
