Is there a God?


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 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 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.”

Because we are all fighting some kind of  battle each day.
