After praying for the kids tonight when they were going to bed, Blythe and I entered into a fairly deep theological discussion. Here is a snapshot from our conversation.
Blythe: Did Jesus die on the cross?
Caleb: Yes, to forgive our sins.
Blythe: What are sins?
Caleb: It's when we do wrong.
Blythe: Jesus is God...Did God die?
Caleb: No, God sent Jesus as a man to die so we could be forgiven
Joe: Was God in jail or Jess (Jesus) in jail?
Caleb: Jesus was in jail for a little while.
Blythe: Why was he in jail?
Caleb: The bad guys put Him in jail.
Joe: God could just kill the bad guys.
Caleb: No, God loves everyone. So he wanted Jesus to talk to them even when he was in jail.
Blythe: Does Jesus live in my heart?
Joe: Does he live in my heart too? and in your heart?
Joe: Cause we're boys.
Caleb: And you'll get to see God some day in Heaven
Blythe: Cause when I die I'll go to Heaven and see God. I'll just wake up, and I'll see God.
