Here are the answers to objections a humanist raises against Christianity, answers so simple that even a child can understand them.

Presented in the form of irresistibles fables, they begin to prepare your child for the many objections he will face when the world finds out that you have rasied him as a Christian.

Since they had been tiny polliwogs, the frogs had heard stories about Man, who lived far away from their little pond. And although they ahd never seen Man, they believed he existed, until one day a very large frog named Boomer hopped into the pond and croaked, "There is no Man!"

All the other frogs got excited and croaked back, "What do you mean? Of course there is Man! We have always been told about him and believed in him!"

Boomer just smirked and answered, "Have you ever seen Man? All those stories are made-up fairy tales for little polliwogs. No creature can be as big as they say Man is! No creature can walk on two legs! And they say Man can take trees and make them into whatever he wants! Ridiculous! No one can turn a tree into anything but a tree! There is no Man! There never was!"

Silly Boomer! You and I know Man exist--but to frogs who have never seen men, all the stories about men caould seem unbelievable. It's the same way with people and God. Because people have never seen God, some will tell you that He cannot possibly exist. They will say. "How can anyone do the things the Bible says God can do? How can anyone be that great? It's just a fairy tale some old men made up to scare you."

What do you think? Do you need to SEE something to prove that it really exists?
