An Athiest in the Woods

My uncle sent this to me. I'm not sure where it's from - if anyone knows, can you comment so I can give proper attribution?



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 rustling in the bushes
behind him. He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards

He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder & saw
that the bear was closing in on him.

He looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was even closer. He tripped &
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 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 of the sky. 'You
deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don'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 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.'
