www.climbingforchrist.org - gets you closer to God...

Just a quick intro for an international citizen that happens to be a resident of Oz. I am an aetheist speaking for myself, but I am certain other like-minded individuals also enjoy the outdoors, through bushwalking, climbing & taking care of our patch of the environment without needing to talk about plate tectonics nor geological weathering processes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

An aetheist 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 gain, 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 Aetheist 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 given credit for creation to a cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help you out of his predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"

The aetheist 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."
