People here have a very spiritual world view. There is often talk of evil spirits, especially as being the cause of this, that or the other. Hence we have been very careful to teach Sophie and Bethany that God is all powerful and is in control of all that happens. Nothing happens that is not by his hand. And as much as a three and five year old can, they seemed to have grasped this. Sophie told the lady next to her on the plane when we came across in January, that without God holding up the plane, it would fall down.
Now, they were chatting this afternoon and talking about how God makes everything happen. Then Bethany happened to fall over and she said, "Oh! God made me fall down"
to which Sophie said, "No, the Bible says, 'He will not let your foot slip.'"
Then Bethany said, "That's funny, there's a mistake in the Bible!"
We'll have to work on inerrancy next.
