I agree with the part that we don't need God to have an evil world. No, that we can arrange by ourselves. Or who of us is never greed, selfish or having bad thoughts of another? Who of us can honestly say that he or she is perfect in all ways?
To me there is no ”the problem of evil” but ”the problem of good”. How can anyone find the strength or will to do anything for anyone but for himself?

"He loved us first". That's why. God loves us and wants to be with us. We only need to trust in Him. It does not mean a life like in Heaven but is without a doubt the way there.
Whether you believed Him or not, you can't hide from glimpses of His goodness. We Westerners actually take it for granted since we have enjoyed it for centuries and are now claiming that it's our own doing.

And it's guaranteed that when we ask Him to leave, He'll leave.
And once again, somebody somewhere wonders ”how anyone can believe in a loving God with this kind of evil in the world?”
Put let me tell you one thing. That somebody is none of these guys. They who own nothing, surprisingly are not the ones denying God. No. They thank and love Him.
