The Proof of the Orange

orange fruit

Once an atheist said; “If any man can prove to me that there is God, I shall believe in Him. But I am sure that there is none, and if there is, there is no proof, conclusive scientific proof, to show that He exists.” 

Everywhere was quiet and it looked that his bluff was not going to be challenged until an old man came out with an unpeeled orange in his hand.

Before the audience and under the watchful eyes of the challenger, the old man peeled the orange and proceeded to eat the orange without saying one word.

When he finished eating the orange he turned to the atheist and said: “Tell me, my friend, how did the orange taste?” 

The atheist now furious, answered; “How can I know how the orange tasted, did I eat it with you? How have you proved that God exists by peeling an orange and eating it?”

The old man now replied: “In the same way, how will you know that God exists except you come to Him?”

That is why the Psalmist exclaimed in Psalm 34:8 and 15: “Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their cry.”
