Default Atheist in the woods

An atheist was walking through the woods and said to himself,

"What majestic trees!"

"What powerful rivers!"

"What beautiful animals!"

As he walked alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes

behind him. He turned to look and saw a 7-foot grizzly charge towards him.

He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder

And saw that the bear was closing in on him. He looked over his

shoulder again, and the bear was even closer. He tripped and fell

on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the

bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw and

raising his right paw to strike him. At that instant, the Atheist cried

out, "Oh my God!"


Time Stopped.

The bear froze.

The forest was silent.


As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky.

"You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don't exist,

and even credit creation to cosmic accident. "Do you expect me

to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"


The atheist looked directly into the light and said, "It would be

hypocritical of me to suddenly ask You to treat me as a Christian

now, but perhaps,....... You could make the BEAR a Christian?"


"Very Well," said the voice.

The light went out.

The sounds of the forest resumed.

The bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed

His head, and spoke:

"Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty

through Christ our Lord, Amen."
