theology begins

Joshua: "Daddy, will I always be one of God's knights? Forever?"

Ah... eternal security versus freewill issues on day 2.
He called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:2-3)

Daddy: "That's a great question. Go get your 'Bible sword' so I can read you something."

Joshua: "Okay!" (comes back with his new Bible)

Daddy: (quoting Romans 10:9) "Say with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord.' Believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead. Then you will be saved." (pause) "Do you remember when you asked Jesus to be your King?"

Joshua: "Yeah!"

Daddy: "And we believe in Jesus and who he is?"

Joshua: "Yeah!"

Daddy: "The Bible says that because of that you are his knight... a Christian."

Joshua: "And is that for forever?"

Daddy: "God doesn't ever want to leave you. Do you want him forever, too?"

Joshua: "Yeah!"

Daddy: "Then we never have to worry about it. He will always honor what you want in your heart. And if that's what's in your heart, then he will always be your king and you will always be his knight."

Joshua: "YES! OOO-OOO-OOO-OOO!" (dancing around)
