God is Great....and funny

I got this via the net.....Old Grizz could not resist passing it along.
An atheist was walking through the woods. 
What majestic trees!
What powerful rivers!
What beautiful animals!
He said to himself.
As he was walking along the river he heard rustling in the bushes behind him.

He turned to look and saw a 7 foot Grizzly bear charging towards him


 He ran as fast as he could up the path but the bear was getting closer.  He turned to look again and tripped and fell.
He rolled over to pick himself up but the Grizzly bear was right on top of him.

At that instant the atheist cried out 
"Oh my God!"
Time stopped.  The bear froze.  The forest was silent.
A bright light shone upon the man.  
A voice came out of the sky.
 
"You have denied my existence for all these years.  Do you expect me to help you now?"
 
Am I to count you as a believer?

The atheist looked into the light and replied, "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. The bear dropped his right paw and brought both paws together, bowed his head and spoke. 


 
"Lord bless this food, for which I am about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen
