Questions from Bubbles

Our latest church magazine has a list of questions asked by kids in our “Bubbles” group, aged 2+. They’re quite a brilliant collection of deep spiritual inquiries. Enjoy – every single one of them is absolutely genuine!

Does God wear pyjamas?

Why weren’t they friends to the people with itchy skin? That is not very kind is it? Were they also unkind to people with “Chicken Spots” [sic]?

If God loves little children, why does he make grown ups?

Do the stars need batteries?

Does God live in the sun?

When we pray without talking, how can God hear us?

Why doesn’t God bring everyone back to life?

Why did God make snow taste like snow? It would be nicer if it was ice lolly flavour.

Do things in heaven smell nice or are there yucky smells as well?

Does God read stories to Jesus?

When angels pick flowers and make pictures with them, where do they stick them up?

Does God like Easter Eggs?

Why does God not take away all the bad things?

Why did God make tears?

Why did God make our teeth fall out when we are big and why do they never get itchy?

What makes God happy?

Finally, my absolute favourite and the most theologically profound of all

4 Comments on “Questions from Bubbles

  1. And does Jesus complain that his birthday gets forgotten because it’s on the same day as Christmas?

  2. Some good questions here

    Does God wear pyjamas?
    No. Psalm 121:4:


    4 Behold, he who keeps Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.

    Since God does not sleep, he does not need to wear pyjamas.

    If God loves little children, why does he make grown ups?
    To make more little children. Genesis 1:22


    Do the stars need batteries?

    No. A battery converts chemical enery into electrictal energy. Stars convert nuclear enegy into electromagnetic energy (for example heat and light).


    Does God live in the sun?

    The sun isn’t big enough to hold God. 1 Kings 8:27

    Behold, heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain you;

    However, in another sense, he lives in us. 1 Cor 3:16:

    Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?

    And since we don’t live in the sun, neither does he.

    When we pray without talking, how can God hear us?
    God knows our thoughts, e.g. Isaiah 66:18

    For I know their works and their thoughts, and the time is coming to gather all nations and tongues. And they shall come and shall see my glory,

    Why doesn’t God bring everyone back to life?
    He will. Revelation 20:12-13
    Why did God make snow taste like snow? It would be nicer if it was ice lolly flavour.
    If snow tasted like ice lollies, and fell from the sky, nobody would buy ice lollies, all the ice cream manufacturers would go out of business, become poor and forced to steal, which would dishonour God’s name (Proverbs 30:8-9).
    Do things in heaven smell nice or are there yucky smells as well? This is quite a tricky one. The best I can come up with is: From Revelation 21 3:4 We see that God will dwell with man, and there will be no mourning, or crying or pain. But God likes nice smells (Leviticus 6:21). In heaven, everything will be as God likes it. Therefore everything will smell nice.
    Does God read stories to Jesus?
    Yes. Then Jesus told them to us. John 14:24.
    When angels pick flowers and make pictures with them, where do they stick them up? They use them to decorate the walls of the many rooms in the Father’s house (John 14:2). Although strict Calvinists prefer plain wallpaper.
    Does God like Easter Eggs? He likes all good things. (Matthew 7:11??)
    Why does God not take away all the bad things? So that there may be a reward for the righteous, and they may be glad (Psalm 58)
    Why did God make tears? a) To wash our eyes. b) So that He may dry them (Psalm 116:8) c) So that we may later be joyful (Psalm 126:5)
    Why did God make our teeth fall out when we are big? As a symbol for us that God is able to make all things new (and better). (Revelation 21:5, c.f. 2 Corinthians 5:7)
    Does God have roast dinner on Sunday? I don’t know, but He did (at least) once have a roast dinner on a Thursday (Luke 22:7-20).
    At Christmas, does Jesus have birthday paper or Christmas paper on his presents? This, I’m afraid, is beyond me.
