I received this as one of the many forwards that I receive on a daily basis, and it made me smile, so maybe you will too!
WHO IS GOD?
God sits in heaven and listens to our prayers all day. It keeps him busy because there are some people who pray other times than when they go to bed, like preachers and stuff. It must get really noisy for Him, unless He has figured out a way to turn it all off.
When you believe in God you are a Christian. If you don't believe in God you are an atheist. I don't believe we have any atheists in Cornville (where I live) at least not in the church that I go to.
He also makes people. He makes them in the form of babies because they are much smaller and easier to make than adults. Then he turns them over to Moms and Dads to get their training, that way he doesn't have to do it.
He used to have a son, named Jesus, who came to earth and spent all his time talking to people, trying to make them believe in God. He worked hard at this -- all the time. And because of that it was annoying to some people, so they crucified him and three days later he went to heaven to live with his father. He helps God listen to all the prayers, and he can handle some of the stuff that doesn't require God's attention. He sits at the right hand of his father. Kind of like they each have favorite chairs, like my Dad.
When you pray you should never pray for something that your Mom and Dad have already said you can't have. Because it might make God angry to see you are doing that, and if there is anybody you don't want to make mad, it's God.
I love God because he is always with you, even when you are out camping and it seems like you are all alone. You know you are never really alone, because he is there, even if you can't see Him. That is why it is good to believe in God instead of being an atheist -- because then you would really be all alone.
