Theology for Kids

Posted Wednesday, May 6, 2009, at 5:12 PM

My kids often ask me a lot of questions about God and religion that leave me absolutely stumped. I try to answer the best I can with my limited knowledge of the Bible, and when I can't answer, I say, "Ask your Dad," or "That's a good question for Pastor Jeff." Usually, they forget about it long before they bother asking anyone else. Sometimes they answer each other's questions, which can be pretty amusing, like this conversation between my six year-old and my four year-old. Yesterday, my six year-old asked, "Does God eat anything?"

My four year-old replied, "Yes, but it's in the sky and it's invisible. It's laser meatloaf. It tastes pretty good, but you can only eat it if you're invisible. It's full of laser beams."

My skeptical six year-old thought God would be more likely to eat chicken soup with rice. I think this conversation proves I need to get my kids to Sunday school, although if there are any Sunday school teachers or pastors reading, I'm curious to know how they would answer the question: Does God eat anything?

It sounds to me like Mom needs a teacher, also. Children can ask many many questions when they are interested in something, especially Faith in Jesus. If you do not have the answer, they may forget their interest, and that would not go good for Mom, on Judgment day. Just a thought.
