      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 ! ... ]  


      ‘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 most important job is listening to prayers. An awful lot
      of this goes on, since some people, like preachers and things, 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

      ‘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
      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 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 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.’

      ‘ 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.'
