    An atheist was taking a walk through the woods.
    What majestic trees!
    What powerful rivers!
    What beautiful animals!" he said to himself.

    As he was walking alongside the river he heard a rustling in the bushes
    behind him. He turned to look. He saw a 7 foot grizzly charge towards
    him.He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder
    and saw that the bear was closing in on him. He looked over his
    shoulder
    again, and the bear was even closer.

    He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up
    but
    saw the bear right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw
    and
    raising his right paw to strike him.

    At that instant the Atheist cried out: "Oh my God!..."

    Time stopped.
    The bear froze.
    The forest was silent.

    As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky: "You
    deny my existence for all of these years, teach others I don't exist,
    and even credit creation to a cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help
    you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"

    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
    could
    You make the BEAR a Christian?"

    "Very well," said the voice.
    The light went out.
    The sounds of the forest resumed.
    And then the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together and
    bowed his head and spoke:

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