A BEAUTIFUL ANALOGY! by Joseph Asamoah Ninson

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
conversati on. 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.”
