This is one of the best explanations of why God allows pain and sufferingthat I have seen...
Aman went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beardtrimmed.
As the barber began to work, they began to have a goodconversation.
They talked about so many things and varioussubjects.
When they eventually touched on the subject of God, thebarber said:
'Idon't believe that God exists.'
'Whydo you say that?' asked the customer. 'Well, you just have to go outin the street to realize that God doesn't exist.
Tell me, if Godexists, would there be so many sick people?
Would there beabandoned children?
IfGod existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain.
I can'timagine a loving God who would allow all of these things.'
Thecustomer thought for a moment, but didn't respond because he didn'twant to start an argument.
The barber finished his job and thecustomer left the shop.
Justafter he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long,stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard.
He looked dirty andunkempt. The customer turned back and entered the barber shop againand he said to the barber:
'Youknow what? Barbers do not exist.'
'How can you say that?' askedthe surprised barber.
'I am here, and I am a barber. And I justworked on you!'
'No!' the customer exclaimed. 'Barbers don't existbecause
if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hairand 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'tlook to Him for help.
That's why there's so much pain andsuffering in the world.'
Ifyou think God exists, send this to other people---
If you thinkGod does not exist, delete it!
