  • Explanation of God by an 8 yr old

    I got this as an email forward, which I usually hate and don't even read, but I thought this was worth reading.

    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.

    I just wonder if any of us could do as well?


    "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

    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 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."

    " 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."
    "He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still"

    -Lao Tzu

    "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."

    -Reinhold Niebuhr

    Very nice. It just leaves out the part about God taking mans sin upon himself to the cross in order to insure salvation for all that believe.

      That sounded pretty good to me, too...when I was eight. About four years later, I asked "Who made God?" Never did get a satisfactory answer.
      No longer ignoring anybody here, since that psycho known as "Josey Wales" finally got the boot after being outed as a LE imposter by B&G978. Nice job.
