Esoteric conversation with a 4-year old

Boy: My Friend said that she knows God

Ma: It’s not enough to just know God. You have to believe in Jesus to get to heaven. You have to believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and He rose again. Because even Satan knows God.

Boy: Who is Satan?

Ma: He was an angel who thought he was God. God threw him and some other angels who followed him out of heaven into hell.

Boy: My friend also said that you have to die before you get to heaven.

Ma: Not true… It depends on when Jesus is coming again. If He comes before we die then we don’t have to die before we get to heaven.

Boy: When is Jesus coming again?

Ma: The Bible does not tell us when He is coming but He will come. When Jesus comes again, Satan and the angels who followed him will be destroyed in hell. And we (who believe in Jesus) will go to heaven to be with God.


May God provide me with the right words to say every time this kind of conversation pops up.
