  THIS ONE IS FABULOUS!!!  It was written by an 8 year old, Danny
  Dutto of Chula Vista, CA, for his third grade homework assignment. The
  assignment was to explain God.  I wonder if any of us could do as
well???
 
  Enjoy!

  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 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 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 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 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.
  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.
  And...that's why I believe in God.
 
  Let us be happy....
