The story is told of an atheistic barber who was talking to a pastor.
The barber asked the pastor, “If there is a loving God, how can He allow poverty, war & suffering?”
Just at that moment a untidy man crossed the street.
The pastor said, “You are a barber & claim to be a good one. How can you allow that man to go unshaven?”
“He never gave me a chance – never came to me!” the barber replied.
To which the pastor said, “Exactly, men are what they are because they reject God – they don't come to Him!”
1Pe 2:4 (CEV): "Come to Jesus Christ. He is the living stone that people have rejected, but which God has chosen and highly honored."
"An atheist can't find God for the same reason that a thief can't find a police officer." - Author unknown.
