If God is there, Why pain,sorrow….?

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

They talked about so many things and 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 and the customer
left the shop. Just after he left the barbershop, he
saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair
and an untrimmed beard. He looked dirty and unkempt.

The customer turned back and entered the barber shop
again and he said to the barber: “You know what?
Barbers do not exist.”

“How can you say that?” asked the surprised barber.

“I am here, and I am a barber. And 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 and untrimmed beards, like that man
outside.”

“Ah, but barbers DO exist! That’s what happens when
people do not come to me.”

“Exactly!” affirmed the customer. “That’s the point!
God, too, DOES exist! That’s what happens when people
do not go to Him and don’t look to Him for help.
That’s! why there’s so much pain and suffering in the
world.”
