Q3) Who created God?
Parent’s response: “No one created God. He exists before the world. If not, how could He have created the world and all therein? And this is why we worship Him – He is our Creator. He is eternal, meaning that He has no beginning and no end.”
Psa 90:1-2 Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever You had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
Rev 22:13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.
Q4) What is Heaven like?
Parent’s response: “It is a place where there will be no sadness, no pain, no sorrow and no death. All things will be new and the old things will be gone. There will be no mean and bad people in Heaven as God will not allow them in Heaven. The evil people will be suffering in another place. Jesus told us that God's house has many mansions and He has gone to prepare a place for us and that He will come again to receive us (John 14:2-3). We also read that many of Jesus’ disciples and apostles look forward to going there (Phil 1:23). There is also no night there; there will be no need for lamps or light from the sun because God will give the light to guide us when we walk (Rev 22:5). God will also give us comfort (Rev 21:4):
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.
Jesus Himself will come again to bring us to that place of light and comfort (John 14:2-3).”
Q5) Why do we need to worship together at the church building if God is present everywhere?
Parent’s response: This is because the apostles said in the Bible that God wants us to do so. God understands each and every one of us. God knows we often need encouragement from one another. Getting together will make our faith stronger, just like how parents will make time specially for their children because they know that when they spend time together, they grow closer together as a family. This is the same reason why God commands Christians to come together on the first day of the week to worship Him and, as often as we can, to study His Word together and spend time together.
Heb 10:25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
