The Atheist or the Christian...

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 tried to run even faster, so
scared that tears were coming to his eyes.

He looked over his shoulder again, and the bear was even closer! His heart
was pumping so he tried to run even faster, but he tripped and fell on the

He rolled over to pick himself up and saw the bear right on top of him,
rising his paw to kill him. At that instant, he cried out "Oh my
God!"...and all time stopped.

The bear froze; the forest was silent; the river even stopped moving. A
bright light shone upon the man, and a voice came out of the sky saying,
"You deny my existence all of these years; teach others I don't exist,
even credit my creation to a 'cosmic accident,' and now do you expect me to
help you in your time of need? Am I to count you as a believer?"

The atheist, ever so proud, looked into the light and said "It would be
rather hypocritical to ask to be a Christian after all these years, but
could you make the bear a Christian?"

"Very well," said the voice.

As the light went out, the river ran, and the sounds of the forest
continued, the bear put his paw down. The bear then brought both paws
together, bowed his head and said: "Lord, I thank you for this food, which
I am about to receive."
