ANATHEIST IN THE WOODS An atheist was walking through the woods.'What majestic trees!'What powerful rivers!'What beautiful animals!He said to himself.As he was walking alongside the river,he heard a rustlingin the bushes behind him.He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear chargetowards him. He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over hisshoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him..He looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was evencloser.He tripped & fell on the ground.He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear wasright on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw& 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 ofthe sky.'You deny my existence for all these years, teach others Idon'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, 'It would behypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as aChristian now, but perhaps you could make the BEAR aChristian'?'Very well,' said the voice.The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed. Andthe bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together,bowed his head & spoke: 'Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from thybounty through Christ our Lord, Amen.'
