Christian Jokes: The Atheist and the Lion

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


Start today with some fun Christian humor.

An atheist was taking a walk through the forest. “What majestic trees! What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals!” he said to himself. As he continued walking alongside the river he heard a rustling in the bushes. Turning to look, he saw a ferocious lion charging towards him. He ran as fast as he could up the path. Looking over his shoulder he saw that the lion was closing in on him. His heart was pumping frantically and he tried to run even faster. He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw the lion raising his paw to take a swipe at him. At that instant the atheist cried out: “Oh my God…”

Time stopped. The lion froze. The forest went silent. It was then that a bright light shone down upon the man and the voice of God came out of the sky saying: “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 lion a Christian?”

“Very well,” said the voice of God.

The light went out. And the sounds of the forest resumed. Then the lion lowered his paw, bowed his head and spoke:

“Lord, bless this food which I am about to receive and for which I am truly thankful. In Jesus name, Amen.”
