Who's your Barber?

A man went to a  barbershop to have his hair cut and
his beard

As the barber  began to work, they began to have a
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
"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
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
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
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

"Exactly!", affirmed the customer.  "That's the point!
God, too,
 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, send
this to other people

...If you think God does not exist, delete it!
