Explanation of God


THIS 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.


“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. 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

“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
figure God put me here and He can take me back anytime He pleases.
And…that’s why I believe in God.”
