Out of the mouths of babes and infants...

Some quotes from our resident philosopher:

SP: I'd like the door put back on the cubby house [at church]

Me: No, we decided to take it off because people were being unkind to each other

SP: Why? [Do kids have any other questions?]

Me: Because we're all human beings

SP: Are girls human too?

And then at breakfast this morning, after reading about Peter denying Christ

Petrina: He [that's Peter] did the wrong thing, but Jesus forgave him.

SP: No, God forgave him, but Jesus didn't

Us: Why?

SP: Because he couldn't forgive him while he was dying [Ed. previously wrote "on the cross", Petrina reminded me what SP actually said last night]

Us: ???????? ... eventually we pointed out that Jesus forgave Peter after his resurrection, when he wasn't on the cross any more.

Any theologians care to tackle that one?
