Children’s Interpretations of the Bible

  • Lot’s wife was a pillar of salt during the day, but a ball of fire during the night.

  • The greatest miracle in the Bible is when Joshua told his son to stand still and he obeyed him.

  • Christians have only one spouse. This is called monotony.

    Between the acting of a dreadful thing
    And the first motion, all the interim is
    Like a phantasma, or a hideous dream:
    The genius and the plan thus inspired
    Depart me and I, entering a room,
    Find myself on the threshold, stand still
    And wonder what I came to do there.
