i used to believe that in your next next life depending on how good you were you came back as an animal an the gooder u were the better the animal
Growing up in church, I heard lots of details regarding heaven. I used to imagine that once getting there, Jesus was seated at a HUGE picnic table (with the red & white checkered table cloth and everything). In front of him was the largest platter of vanilla & chocolate sandwich cookies (you know, the kind with the white creme in the middle) which were my favorite at the time. Also in attendance was all my deceased relatives, and Elvis, dressed in gold lame' jumpsuit, sunglasses and guitar playing for us all. I was probably 5 or 6 at the time.
when I was 5 or 6 I remember my mom explaining Heaven as a place "in the sky" where a person's soul goes when he /she dies. I spent a lot of time checking out clouds, I always imagined them as being some sort of transport system for all the dead souls.
I truly thought I saw people at the edges of the clouds as if waiting to get to someplace-heaven perhaps? hmmm maybe I have the shining...
I used to believe that the rays that shone through the clouds from the sun were "escalators" that beamed down from heaven to take people up who had died. To this day when I see them I still think that. That heaven is "beaming" people up.
I used to believe that EVERYTHING went to heaven when it died. I used to picture fluffy clouds taking wrecked cars up to heaven and be scared that they would be too heavy and fall on me!
I used to think that when we got to heaven there would be new colors that no one knew about yet.
There was a concrete bottom to the sandbox at my elementary school. I believed Hell was just underneath.
When I was a little boy I used to believe that heaven was like a huge retirement center, with ping pong, dance classes, and bad cafeteria food. When I went on a plane ride I was saddened when I didn't see anything.
I used to believe that when I died God would grant me one wish...and I was going to ask him to go all the different places in the universe.
I surprised my Mam once when I was about 4 by explaining to her in all seriousness:
"When they die, very good people go to Heaven, and very bad people go to Hull."
This only makes sense if you live in the UK, though. ;o)
when i was younger i thought that when you died that god made you an angel, he didnt know how to do the colored wash, so he just gave all the angles white clothes to wear.
When I saw those sunbeams that sometimes come from clouds, I used to think that it was Jesus coming back to take all the Christians up to heaven.
I remember when I was young that I believed people ascended to Heaven in a bucket and also that Heaven resided at the top of a tall hill that was located behind my grandma's house....
I used to believe that before u were born u would be in heaven
I used to belive I could be Jesus's girlfriend when I died.
When I was five, I believed that there was a big ark floating above the clouds. One day, it would swoop down and gather all the good people.
Inside it would look like a congergation, but have lots of animals inside.
i used to believe that when somebody died they came back and back and back looking for inner peace and then became killers looking for revenge on people who made their lives miserable not funny
once when i was walking home from school i was bragging to my best friend's older brother about something (i dont remember what it was), and he asked me, "do you swear to god?". i said yes and he said that if i was lying, i would automatically go to hell. i was absolutely freaked out that my eternal soul was in peril, and i prayed for my salvation the rest of the way home.
I used to think that heaven was something of a Chuckie Cheese's, and you started out with 1 million tokens, and for each sin you commited, you lost a token, and each good thing, you gained one.
When I was 10 a friend told me that if you said "devil" and "hell" more often than you said "God" and "heaven", then you would go to Hell (and vice versa). I was really worried so every time I said "hell" or "devil" in whatever context I would say heaven lots of times. When I wasn't doing anything I would often be saying "God god god god" just to even out the score.
