The Atheist Neighbor

There was an old man who would come out every morning on the steps of his front porch, raise his arms to the sky, and shout, "Praise be to God!"

One day an atheist moved into the house next door. Over time, he became irritated at the little old man. So every morning he would step out onto his front porch and yell after him, "There is no God!"

Time passed with the two of them carrying on the way every day. Then one morning in the middle of winter, the little old man stepped onto his front porch and shouted, "Praise be to God! Oh God, I have no food and I am starving. Please provide for me, oh God!"

The next morning, he stepped onto his porch and there were two huge bags of groceries sitting there. "Praise  be to God!" he cried out. "He has provided groceries for me!" The atheist jumped out of the hedges and shouted, "There is no God. I bought those groceries!" The little old man threw his arms into the air and shouted, "Praise be to God! He has provided me with groceries and He made the devil pay for them!"
