Origin of Children
Whenever your kids (or your friend's kids in this case), are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to God's kids. After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve. The first thing he said was, "Don't".
"Don't what?" Adam replied.
"Don't eat the forbidden fruit," God said.
Forbidden fruit? We've got forbidden fruit? "Hey, Eve, we've got forbidden fruit!"
"Don't eat that fruit!" said God.
"Because I'm your father and I said so!" said God, wondering why he hadn't stopped after making the elephants.
A few minutes later God saw his kids having an apple break and was very angry. "Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit?" God asked.
"Uh huh, " said Adam.
"Then why did you?"
"I dunno," Eve answered.
"She started it!" Adam shouted.
Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own. Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed. If God had trouble handling children, what makes you think it would be a piece of cake for you??
