If God Exists …

If God Exists
…why does He allow so much pain and suffering?
If you are able to view power point presentations, please click
the following link to see a colorful picuresque slide show 
cleverly addressing this important question.
 
For those who are unable to view powerpoint on their computers, the following it the basic text of the presentation.
=====================================================
IF GOD EXISTS
… why is there so much pain and suffering?
——–
A man went to a barbershop 
to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed. 
 
 
As the barber did his work, 
they began a conversation, as barbers often do,
and also talked about God.  
 
——–
Then 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.‘
‘You see, if God exists, 
would there be so many sick people?  Would there be abandoned children?  
Would there be so many calamities and wars?’
 
——–
 
‘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. 
 
Then 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 barbershop 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 cut your hair!' 
 
'Well,' the customer exclaimed, 
'barbers can't exist because if they did, 
there would be no people with dirty long hair 
and untrimmed beards,
like that man outside on the street.'
——–
The barber replied, 'Ah, but barbers DO exist! 
That only happens to people who do not come to me.'
'Exactly!' affirmed the customer. 
'That's the point! 
God, too, DOES exist! 
People  do not go to Him
and don't look to Him for guidance and help. 
 
That is the reason why there is so much pain 
and suffering in the world.
——–
Only when we recognize the cause of our disease
can we know and apply the cure.
 
The scriptures have been giving us knowledge
of both the cause of our ills and the cure.
 
This is scientific knowledge. Do not discount the ultimate
theory before making the experiment to prove it to yourself.
 
 
 

LET US NOT MAKE OUR STOMACH A GRAVEYARD. LET US NOT EAT FLESH. LET US BE VEGETARIANS AND STAY HEALTHY. Animals are to be loved, not eaten. Eating flesh is good neither for the mind nor for the intellect, not even for the body. It distorts the basic character of human. Think Soul is Soul and it came from the Supreme Soul…God Head Krishna
Chant:
Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare
