Theology according to Rebekah

At bedtime a few nights ago...
D: You know, Rebekah, when you get out of bed you are disobeying Mom & Dad. And that means you are disobeying God.....(continues with God-centered lesson in authority and submission).
R: But Dad, God takes away all our sin.
D: flabergasted and speechless

This morning...
R: Mom, where's God?
A: God is everywhere.
R: But we can't see him.
A: Right. Remember, God is a spirit and has not a body like a man. (That's Question 9).
R: But He has a mouth.
A: No, God is a spirit. He doesn't have a mouth like you and I do.
R: But he does cuz He speaks to us.

Sometime after getting in trouble (I've lost count and don't remember which exact instance)...
R: But Grandma loves me when I get in trouble.

I think Grandma meant more like "even when you get in trouble." She certainly has grace down.
