Stump Pastor Dave

In the JETS shed at Tassie bigcamp the kids put questions in a box and I answered them during the meeting. I was so impressed with the questions! They made me laugh, love, ponder and wonder. Here they are… (I'll leave you to ponder the answers!)

General Questions:
If Giants aren’t real, why are they in the Bible?
What was Jesus’ Mum’s Mum’s name? What was Jesus’ Dad’s Dad’s Name?

If God can do anything then why isn’t the future predestined? Because if it is then God cant change it – He can’t do anything.
