Gospel Mis-Understanding

We had two baptisms at our church today. So, it was no surprise that our five-year-old daughter inquired further about the subject at the dinner table. She started by asking if Mommy had been baptized and then if Daddy had been baptized and lastly if she had been baptized. When we told her that we had and that she hadn't she wanted to know why. Daddy began to explain that she needed to have a good understanding of the gospel. At which point, our four-year-old piped up saying, "I understand the gospel; Jesus Christ died on the cross for his sins."

After a bit of laughter, my husband corrected the close...yet so far away.
