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! " 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."
