Somehow the conversation with my children turned to God and theology so I decided to ask them a few questions. Here I share with you their answers.
Drayken is age 6.
Ronin is age 9.
Hunter is age 11.
What do you think God looks like?
Ronin: Well, isn’t the theory that God has brown hair and a brown beard with a brown robe?
Hunter: That’s what He looks like on The Simpsons.
But what do YOU think He looks like? Is he a tangible person who you can actually see or something else?
Hunter: No, I don’t think so.
Ronin: I think maybe God is a spirit.
Drayken: I think God is everywhere.
Why do you think we call God a He?
Ronin: Maybe we just call God a He because that is what comes naturally to us? But I think God is genderless.
Do you think that Jesus died on the cross to erase our sins or did Jesus die because we are sinners?
Ronin: The last thing. I think maybe Jesus died to get us to STOP sinning. So that we would see what our sins could do, how terrible our sins can be.
