Sunday Spiritual - Does GOD exist?

DOES GOD EXIST?

This is one of the best explanations on the
nature of God that I have ever seen...

A man went to a barbershop to have his hair
cut and his beard trimmed. As the barber began
to work, they began to have a good conversation.
They talked about so many things and various subjects.


When they eventually touched on the subject of God,
the barber said: 'I don't believe that God exists.' 


'Why do you say that?' asked the customer.
'Well, you just have to go out in the street to
realize that God doesn't exist.

Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many
sick people? Would there be abandoned children?


If God existed, there would be neither
suffering nor pain.

I can't imagine a loving God who would
allow all of these things.'

The customer thought for a moment, but
didn't respond because he didn't want to
start an argument.

The barber finished his job and the customer
left the shop. 


Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a
man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair
and an untrimmed beard.

He looked dirty and unkempt.The customer
turned back and entered the barbershop again
and he said to the barber:

'You know what? Barbers do not exist.'

'How can you say that?' asked the surprised
barber. 'I am here, and I am a barber. And I
just worked on you!'


'No!' the customer exclaimed. 'Barbers don't
exist because if they did, there would be no
people with dirty long hair and untrimmed
beards, like that man outside.'

'Ah, but barbers DO exist! That's what happens
when people do not come to me.'

'Exactly!' affirmed the customer. 'That's the
point! God, too, DOES exist! That's what
happens when people do not go to Him and don't
look to Him for help.
That's why there's so much pain and suffering in
the world.'


If you think God exists, share this with other
people--- 

I did!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
