    Hi Viewers felt like sharing this one.

    This is one of the best explanations of why GOD allows pain 'n suffering that I have seen.

    A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut 'n his beard trimmed. As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation.

    They talked about so many things 'n various subjects.
    When they eventually touched on the subject of GOD, the barber said: "I don't believe that GOD exists."
    "Why do you say that?" asked the customer.

    "Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that GOD doesn't exist. Tell me, if GOD exists, would there be so many sick people? would there be abandoned children?

    If GOD existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain. I can't imagine a loving GOD who would allow all of these things."

    The customer thought for a moment, but didn't respond because he didn't want to start an argument

    The barber finished his job 'n the customer left the shop.Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair 'n an untrimmed beard. He looked unkempt. The customer turned back 'n entered the barbershop again 'n he said to the barber:

    "You know what? Barbers do not exist."

    "How can you say that?" asked the surprised barber.

    "I am here, 'n I am a barber. 'n I just worked on you!"

    "No!" the customer exclaimed. "Barbers don't exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair 'n untrimmed beards, like that man outside."

    "Ah, barbers DO exist! What happens is, people do not come to me.
    "Exactly!- affirmed the customer. "That's the point! GOD, too exist!

    What happens, is, people don't go to him 'n do not look for him. That's why there is so much pain 'n suffering in the world.

    I have a slightly different take on this.
    ...but then every road leads us to GOD...
    ..i am just copy pasting what I had to say i another similar thread
    This is the question that I have been hearing every now and then ......
    Why God let bad things happen?
    God is our creator....yes....but he cannot control the action taken by humanity. For example, people have cancer is because the toxins that been built up for years in their body causing cells malfunctioning. If they watch what they are eating then the chance that they will get cancer will be very slim.
    So why some people are blaming God for something that they did to themselves or to the world. We are who to blame for everything that happening in today's world. Asking God why he cannot stop people from creating a War is like asking him why he didnt stop Eve from eating an apple from the forbidden tree.
