The Bible says to have an
answer for why you believe, to those who ask
you.This is a good example of an answer to one of the most common reasons
people give for ignoring God and His goodness.
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
"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 a God who would allow all of these things."
The customer thought for a moment, but didn't respond because he didn't

there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like

not come to me. "
"Exactly!"- affirmed the customer. "That's the p 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 in the world."
