  • Parents know that children who are raised in church give the same answer when asked virtually any question about the Bible: God.
    Although this predictable answer is sometimes humorous, the answer is given for good reason. Children learn early on that God is the right answer to so many questions. Who made the world? God. Who made the trees? God. Who made the sun? God. Who made the stars? God. Who made you? God!
