Are You An Atheist?

It is hard to become a fisher of man! Right now, I have these goals in life: To Know and Praise God, To do good Deeds and Respect others! I do believe in God! So, when I encountered people who doesn't, I don't pushed my own views! This week, I met someone who says, "I have problems with Catholics, because they pray images and statues". Here we go again but, I don't want to debate about Religion 101. If you are an Atheist, my response is this story: 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 loving a 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 unkept.
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!
What happens is, people
do not come to me."

affirmed the customer.
"That's the point!
God, too, DOES exist!
What happen 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."
