Explanation of an 8 yr old

Written by Danny Dutton, age 8, from Chula Vista, California, for  his
third grade homework assignment to "Explain God". Read on...

"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 here
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
besides bedtime. God doesn't have time to listen to the radio or TV on account
of this. Since He hears everything, not only prayers, 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
parent'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 OK.
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, of course.
You can pray anytime you want and they are sure to hear 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 anyboby 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 very good 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. 

why I believe in God."
