A Child’s View of God

Here is a treat for Friday from Inspire21.com. It’s a hilarious example of “reading between the lines” of the Bible. Enjoy!

8 Year-Old’s Explanantion of God

One of God’s main jobs is making people. He makes them to replace the ones that die, so there will be enough people to take care of things on earth.

He doesn’t make grownups, just babies. I think because they are smaller and easier to make. That way he doesn’t have to take up his valuable time teaching them to talk and walk. He can just leave that to mothers and fathers.

God’s second most important job is listening to prayers. An awful lot of this goes on, since some people, like preachers and things, pray at times beside bedtime.  God doesn’t have time to listen to the radio or TV because of this.

Because he hears everything, there must be a terrible lot of noise in his ears, unless he has thought of a way to turn it off.

God sees everything and hears everything and is everywhere which keeps Him pretty busy. So you shouldn’t go wasting his time by going over your mom and dad’s head asking for something they said you couldn’t have.

Atheists are people who don’t believe in God. I don’t think there are any in Chula Vista. At least there aren’t any who come to our church.

Jesus is God’s Son. He used to do all the hard work like walking on water and performing miracles and trying to teach the people who didn’t want to learn about God. They finally got tired of him preaching to them and they crucified him. But he was good and kind, like his father, and he told his father that they didn’t know what they were doing and to forgive them and God said O.K.

His dad (God) appreciated everything that he had done and all his hard work on earth so he told him he didn’t have to go out on the road anymore. He could stay in heaven. So he did. And now he helps his dad out by listening to prayers and seeing things which are important for God to take care of and which ones he can take care of himself without having to bother God. Like a secretary, only more important.

You can pray anytime you want and they are sure to help you because they got it worked out so one of them is on duty all the time.

You should always go to church on Sunday because it makes God happy, and if there’s anybody you want to make happy, it’s God.

Don’t skip church or do something you think will be more fun like going to the beach. This is wrong. And besides the sun doesn’t come out at the beach until noon anyway.

If you don’t believe in God, besides being an atheist, you will be very lonely, because your parents can’t go everywhere with you, like to camp, but God can.

It is good to know He’s around you when you’re scared, in the dark or when you can’t swim and you get thrown into real deep water by big kids.

But… you shouldn’t just always think of what God can do for you. I figure God put me here and he can take me back anytime he pleases. And this is what I know about God.

What is your favorite “God” quote from a child?

  1. You sound kind of rebellious of God….. Am I not correct? And, if God was so called all powerful, why would he need Jesus to help him. And if God has a son, where is God’s wife. I thought there was only one God and he is all powerful so he doesn’t anyone to help him, then why does he need a son? The way you describe it, it seems like there are 2 Gods (Jesus and God) instead of one. VERY CONFUSING!

    • You seem to have great respect for God. I like that. So do I. Does this post seem disrespectful to you? These are not my thoughts. They were written by a child. I don’t see disrespect or rebellion in the child’s words. He knows he should be careful to please God, but he also says that God is with him always, even when his parents are not. He seems to honor and trust God. . . . God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit are three parts of one all-powerful person. Can I totally explain this? No. God is too awesome for humans to comprehend. And God the Father and Jesus are not a father and son in the human sense. God uses those words to give us a glimpse of the close, partnering relationship they have with each other.

      • Thanks. Never mind the child’s words… I do not understand the 3 parts. Why would God need help from a human? And, I really don’t know what the holy spirit even is in fact. BTW you didn’t answer many of my questions. Are they a bit challenging for you? Just so you know, I’m only a child, haven’t even become a teen yet. So that’s why I probably don’t understand these things. But no offense I find that Islam is way cooler because God doesn’t need a son or any other part/partner. I challenge you to learn about Islam with an open mind. If you don’t succeed to like it, you don’t have to. But if you do, may God lead you.
