Abbey question: ‘why did God let Jesus die?  Why didn’t He just kill Satan instead?’

it’s a great question. And, not to give our 5 year old too much credit, but I think it indicates a significant level of theological thinking- and that makes me proud. In order to ask that question, I’m guessing she had to wrestle with different ways Fod could have made things right. 

For us parents, it’s tempting to really engage the question. But at the moment, we think it’s best to just give shorter, basic answers.
