ONE IS FABULOUS!!! It was written by an 8-year-old, Danny Dutton of
Chula Vista, CA, for his third-grade homework assignment. The
assignment was to explain God. Wonder if any of us could do as
CAN YOU EXPLAIN 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 grown-ups, 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.
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
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
Jesus is God's Son. He used to do all the hard work like walking on
water and performing miracles and people 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
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 to 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...that's why I believe in God.
