A little boy went up to a missionary Sunday School leader in a pagan country. The boy said, "I like what you say about the God of the Bible but I can’t see him. But if I go to the temple I can see my God."

The missionary said to the little boy, "Listen, does your God bleed?"

The boy said, "I don’t know."

The missionary gave him a pin and said, "Next time you go to the temple, when no one else is watching, prick him and see what happens."

The following week the boy returned to his Sunday School class. He said to the missionary, "I did it, I did it, I pricked the idol."

The missionary said, "And what happened?"

The boy replied, "Nothing, my god doesn’t bleed."

Straight away the missionary said, "But my God did! He bled for me and he bled for you!"
