PostSubject: Why God Allows Pain   Mon Jan 19, 2009 7:08 pm

This is one of the best explanations of why God
allows pain and suffering that I have seen...


************************************

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."
