    Does God Exist?


    >


    >This is one of the best explanations of why God allows pain and suffering


    >that I have seen. It's an explanation other people will understand.



    >


    >


    >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 into 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 barber shop 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 your hair!"


    >


    >"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! What happens is, people do not come to me."


    >


    >"Exactly!" affirmed the customer. "That's the point! God, too, DOES exist!


    >What happens, is, people don't go to Him and do not look for Him. That's why


    >there's so much pain and suffering in the world."


    >




    >BE BLESSED AND BE A BLESSING !!!!
