When I was younger I used to think that God was a genie, my friend told me that he had thought that his priest was the Jesus fella they went on about so maybe things should be better explained in church!

When I was younger, I believed that god could hear everything I say. Like, I would walk around saying: "How are you? Good? I'm so bored." And I'd actually start conversation thinking I was the only person in the world who could communicate with god, and with spirits. So I'd go around telling everyone that I was psychic, and that I went to psychic school. And I thought I could communicate with the non-living spirits by tearing up a leaf into 4 equal parts, and then blowing them into the wind. Man, was I ever dumb back then!

There's a line in the lord's prayer about Jesus being "crucified under Pontius Pliate". In my 3-year-old mind, "Pilate" became "Pilot", so I always had this image of the Red Baron circling in his bi-plane over the site of the Passion.

It was not until 6th grade social studies that I learned the true spelling of "Pilate", and that "Pontious" is not an adjective

They told me that Jesus was always beside me, so when I sat down in the car, I scooted waaaay over to the side so that Jesus would have a place to sit.

When I was little, I felt really bad for Satan from the Bible. I said to my mom "The devil doesn't seem to be very happy. Maybe if we prayed for him, he wouldn't get up to so much bad things?" She laughed and said, "Maybe."

When I was in lower school I used to brag about how I was related to Jesus... I managed to come to this conclusion because my aunty's brithday is on christmas day! This obviously means that she was Jesus' sister! I never used the ' I will get my brother to beat you up!' Oh no! I was gonna get Jesus on you!

When I was 3-4 I used to believe images of the Virgin, Jesus in the cross and the Guardian Angel would grow during night time until becoming horrorific figures/monsters that would swallow me or even worse, make me become insane. I spent many nights crying out loud and calling my mom to talk to the Virgin or the Guardian Angel. When I was 6-7 I decided to take any religious figure out of my bedroom... That's when I could sleep in peace.

When I was little I used to believe God was Big Bird from sesame street and everytime I prayed I would picture him listening to me.

I used to think Jesus was the husband of Mary and God was their baby, and the Pope was Mary's Father. Priests were Mary's brothers.

top belief!

When I was four and somewhat Christian (I didn't know anything except the basics), I thought that there were three equal and holy people; God, Jesus and Santa Claus.

We pray to God, Jesus and the Holy Santa Claus

I used to think that Jesus was buried on the local graveyard, and whenever I was there with my familiy, me and my sister would run around and try to find the gravestone wich said "Jesus". I was very young when I did this, I don't think I understood that there were more graveyards than this one. I can also remember that I was very confused when I didn't find the grave...

I used to believe that Jesus and God where two geese living in heaven looking after us. This is the reason I told my friends that if they didn't behave, they wouldn't be sent to the Geese when they died (Geese - Jesus). Of cource it was the prenounciation that was the reason for this mistake

When I heard that "Jesus is a part of us" I thought that a part of our body was actually Jesus'. I though I had Jesus' eye.

When I was a youngin' I sometimes wondered if some God like figure made cardboard cutouts of everybody every moment (kind of like an animation). These cardboard cutouts were of course made from a giant machine. The cutouts only really existed if somebody was looking at the person though.

I used to believe that once you turned a teenager, you then met GOD. I remember thinking to myself when we met, i would ask him to give me longer hair. Afterall GOD was a magicial man in my house, he could do anything your heart desired. I still believe that, however now i know i have to be dead for him to greet me..haha.

I used to think that Jesus had magically grown up into an adult in the three months between Christmas and Easter. If he could come back to life, then why not?

I used to believe that my guardian angel was always behind me and that when I spun around I could glimpse her hair. When I was older I realized that it was my own hair I was seeing!
