#Religion According to the Six-year-old

My niece was recently baptized in our church. Leading up to her baptism, she had several discussions on the bases of our religion. Her younger sister, who is six, decided to sit in on these discussions and had some rather interesting things to say. 

Incident #1

Our Friend: Who is God?

The Niece: God is Jesus's dad and Jesus was like, "Hi guys. I'm gonna be dead for a while."

Incident #2

The missionaries had some cups with pictures of prophets on them that they used to explain the order of the church. 

The niece found a spider created by my sister's boyfriend as a Christmas tree decoration (this is what happens when my mom asks us to each provide an ornament representing us).

Me: Child, do not put that spider as the head of the church.

The Niece: (indistinct noise of objection)

**a few minutes later**

Me: Why is the spider at the head of the church? Where's the kid?

Unfortunately, the church fell before I could take a picture of the spider dominating it. 

Lesson learned: A church that follows the gospel of a spider cannot stand. 

Do not rely on this for spiritual promptings


  1. LOL! Love your niece's answer to the question, "Who is God?" - she has a certain way with words!

    1. She keeps us on our toes for certain. She's a funny kid.

  2. LOL! This was wonderful! So funny! That spider is scary! lol.

    Also, I tagged you in a game of tag on my blog!
