“… I figure God put me here and he can take me back anytime he pleases….”

 

 

This was written by an 8-year-old named Danny Dutton, who lives in Chula Vista, CA. He wrote it for his 3rd grade homework assignment, the purpose of which was to ‘explain God.’   

"...and who said there was not a God?"

“…and who said there was not a God?”

EXPLANATION 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 important job is listening to prayers. An awful lot of this goes on, since some people, like preachers, 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 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 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 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 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.’ …Blessings …cjlb…4/29/14
