An Atheist in the Woods"

An atheist was walking through
the woods.

"What majestic trees!"
"What powerful rivers!"
beautiful animals!"
He said to himself.

As he was walking
alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He
turned to look. A 7-foot grizzly bear charging towards him.

man 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 and raising his right paw to
strike him.

At that instant the Atheist cried out, "Oh my God!".

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 a cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help you out
of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"

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. And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together,
bowed his head & spoke:

"Lord bless this food, which I am
about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen."
