Babyboy started chattering about God in the car yesterday. We were driving to collect his sister from school.
He had been examining the Nativity outside of his school. He thought it was funny that they had baby Jesus/God and God.
I replied that the Baby Jesus was represented in the Nativity. The other people in were Mary, Joseph, and the Wise Men.
He informed me that I was wrong. He saw the man with the beard and that was God.
I told him that he was right there was a man with a beard. He was not God.
He the in turn told me that I was wrong. He knew what God looked like and God has a beard.
I retorted, "Well Petes has a beard and he isn't God."
He laughed, "Of course not his beard is different."
I then came back with, "People always think they know what God looks like. Even Jesus we can guess but we don't know. The Bible says that sometimes God looks like a lion and Sometimes a Lamb."
He questioned, "So God is a transformer?"
I paused, then answered, "yes".
He yelled, "COOL!"
Then we got to have a really cool conversation about the subject.
