An atheist was taking a walk 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 rustling in the bush

behind him. He turned to look.

He saw a 7 foot grizzly charging 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


His heart was pumping frantically and he tried to run even faster. He

tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick

himself up but saw the bear 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


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 of 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?"

The atheist looked directly into the light, "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. And the sounds of the

forest resumed. And then the bear dropped his right paw, brought both

paws together and bowed his head and spoke:

"Lord, Bless this food which I am about to receive and for which I am

truly thankful."

has a preacher going bear hunting on Sunday morning instead of fulfilling his duties. He has the same bear attack with repentant conviction for God to make the bear a Christian with the same result.
Again, a funny story

Has some truth to it too!
