An Atheist Was Walking Through the Woods : Atheist Joke

An atheist was walking through the woods.

‘What majestic trees!
‘What powerful rivers!
‘What beautiful animals!
He said to himself.

Suddenly, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him.

He turned to look . . . and saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards him.

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

He looked over his shoulder again,
and the bear was even closer …

and then ….. He tripped and fell.

Rolling over to pick himself up, he found the bear was right on top of him ….
reaching towards him with its left paw …
and raising the right paw to strike …

At that instant the Atheist cried out,
‘Help me God!’

Time Stopped …
The bear froze …..
The forest was silent ….

Even the river stopped moving.

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?”

… a pause …

“Very well,” said the voice …

The light went out.
The sounds of the forest resumed …

And the bear dropped his right arm ….
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! …”
