Explanation of God by an 8 yr old: Good read

This is good on so many levels. Yeah, some may pick it apart, that’s too bad, but the essence is spot on. ‘Don’t go over your parents head’ is authority in a nutshell.

I do wonder about the parents of this kid, some real good depth here. Enjoy.


My Uncle Ty sent me this email;

Explanation of God by an 8 yr old
   Little Boy’s Explanation of God — Fabulous!!!   –
Out of the mouths of the Babes–

I certainly don’t think an adult could explain this more beautifully!

It was written by an 8-year-old named Danny Dutton, who lives in Chula Vista , CA . He wrote it for his third grade homework assignment, to ‘explain God. ‘ I wonder if any of us could have done as well ?
(and he had such an assignment, in California , and someone published it, I guess miracles do happen!)

    Wow, that poor kid has really been brainwashed, hasn’t he? At least his parents seem not to have terrified him with the prospect of hell, that’s in their favor. I’ll bet he still believes in Santa too.

    I liked his line about there not being any atheists in Chula Vista (I took my daughters to school every day in Chula Vista), as none that he knows of attends his church. Hopefully, he’ll outgrow all of that one day.

      You’re an adult human being, who believes by faith, no less that his ancestors are early hominid yet you turn around to call a child brainwashed for looking around and seeing all that God has created and giving respect, reverence, praise, and awe to the Only One Worthy.

      I will say, your brain and your whole being needs to be washed – by the cleansing blood of Christ Jesus; be humble my friend, and be still for several moments, then you will know, and recognize your Creator and be able to esteem and glorify Him for who He is. There is only One God, and you’re not Him.
      God opposes the willful proud; but pours out grace on the humble

  4. What fun, Colorstorm! Thanks for sharing that. Out of the mouths of babes, indeed. It’s the grown ups that always try to make everything so darn complicated.
