"Behold I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and opens the door, come in to him and will sup with him, and he with me." Revelation 3:20

A man went to the barber for a haircut as he always did.
He started talking to the barber and talked about various subjects.
Conversation going, talk comes, they started talking about God.
The barber said:
"- I do not believe that God exists as you say."
"- Why do you say that?" - The customer asked.
"- Well, it's very simple." You just need to go outside to see that God does not exist.
If God existed, you would there be so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children?
If God existed, there would be no pain or suffering. "I can not imagine a God who permits all of these things."
The customer thought for a moment, but he declined to give a response to prevent an argument.
The barber finished his job and the customer left.
At this time, he saw a man on the street with a beard and long hair.
It looked like it had been a long time he did not cut his hair or shaved and he looked dirty and creepy.
Then the client returned to the barbershop and the barber said:
"- You know what? Barbers do not exist. "
"- How come they do not exist?" asked the barber. "- I'm here and I am a barber."
"- No!" - The client exclaimed. "They do not exist because if they existed there would be no people with long hair and beard like that man who is walking in the street there."
"- Ah, but barbers DO exist, what happens is that people do not come to me, and this is an option of them"
"- Exactly!" - Affirmed the customer. "- Is just that. God exists, what happens is that people do not seek it because of them is an option, and that is why there is so much pain and suffering in the world."
"God did not promise days without pain, laughter without suffering, sun without rain. He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the road ... ".
