The Life and Times of Louis & Amber - PETA

As long as we're on the subject, I need to relate to you a story that happened recently here at The Pines. Each Tuesday and Thursday evening I hold Bible Study with the 8 oldest children. One thing you quickly learn is no matter what these children have been through in their short lives, they are by no means lacking in personality.

A couple weeks ago we were discussing the Bible, where it comes from, and how we know it is true. One of the reasons I pointed out is the history of Biblical facts vs. Scientific reason. I was explaining to them how throughout history the "wisest" scientists made outrageous claims that contradict what the Bible says. For instance, they learned the story of Christopher Columbus and how he was warned that he would fall off the end of the earth if he kept sailing west.

Another example is the conflict between Creationism and Evolution. We got into a discussion of where everything came from, and why God chose to make things the way He did. I posed the question to the children "Why did God create plants?" The answer given by one of the boys was "So the animals could have something to eat." This of course logically led to a second question "Why did God create animals?" Using a tone of voice that could mean nothing other than "Duh", the same boy responded "Because they are so delicious."

  1. I suppose that the title of the post refers to "People for the Eating of Tasty Animals"?

  2. Kids say the darndest things, don't they? Jacob's comment sums it up quite nicely. I wish I had kept a diary of my 40 years of kid stories. You'll never regret putting these expereiences in writing....and thanks for sharing.
    Blessings, Martha
