I decided to write a response to my wife that I knew was inadequate to read to our son but I hoped it would equip her to handle the answering herself. Uh, no. Didn't get off that easy. She hadn't even read the response by the time I got home and so the ball was back in my court. YAY! So over dinner we had a string of questions and answers. That's right, I went catechism style. I think the boys got it.
Now I'm really afraid. Our boys are five and seven and they are asking us questions that most believers never even consider. Now I have to figure out how to balance scriptural study with personal discipleship so that I can be ready with answers to their seminary level questions. Does that balance even exist? I always feel like I am falling short one way or the other.
Enough of my rambling...help me out folks. How would you answer a five year old who asks such a question?
God says we should love our enemies, does God love Satan? Wow, just, wow.
