Christ and Adam and Eve

Lately Christopher has been enthralled with 'Christ'. Let me tell you, it's quite funny. He carries his bible around ALL the time, and he talks about 'Christ' constantly. It cracks me up, because I have never called Jesus just plain 'Christ', but the boys do, and it has taken some getting used to.

So today Bam-Bam wanted to talk about Genesis, so I went through what I could of the whole book on the drive to get Tim from work. We talked about Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph, and then when we were done, Joey said, 'Do it again!' So I did.

We talked about how God kicked Adam and Eve out of the Garden because they sinned, and apparently that struck a chord with Bam-Bam. A few minutes ago as he was talking about Genesis with his Daddy, Tim started laughing, because Christopher was acting out what God did in the Garden.

I had said He kicked out Adam and Eve, and so Bam-Bam was showing his Daddy what God had done. :) Christopher is good at kicking, and if God had literally kicked them out of the garden like Bam-Bam understands, they would never have sat in comfort or joy, boy oh boy, they would never have sat in comfort or joy.

It totally cracked us up and it reminds me that children take all things literally.
