BEAUTIFUL ANALOGY!________________________________________________________________

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 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 realise 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 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! " answered the barber.
What happens, is, people do not come to me."
Exactly!"- affirmed the customer. "That's the point! God, too, DOES exist! What happens, 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."
