Tuesday

conversation with elliot this morning

Elliot: Mama, the reason I don't know if I believe in God is because there's no way he could have created the earth in seven days. Do I have to believe that to believe in God?

Me: No, honey. Lots of stories in the Bible and other holy books are just stories to help people try to understand things before we had a lot of scientific research to explain things. And you can still believe in God even if you don't believe those stories are literally true.

Elliot: I'm with Damien Marley; love is my religion

It may have taken God 7 days to create the Earth, but look at what's in store for it:

I watched this video, and now think I understand why it may appeal to people to believe in the bible rather than in science!!!
