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.

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!

At church, every christmas they told the story of when jesus was born and the older kids did a little play. Naturally, I thought that jesus was born every year, cause we were celebrating the "birth of christ", not just his birthday.

i used to believe that god was a little black kid who carried a banana leaf around over his head. i think it's cause i read this kids book with this character in it and for some reason associated him with god. i still think its a friendlier image than a towering old man with a white beard.

In religious study in school when I was little one of our teachers mentioned that somepeople believe that your conscious is God somehow from this I got the idea that Jiminy Cricket from Pinnocino was God and that the blue fairy was the virgin Mary. This concept didnt go down particularly well when i kept refering to Mary as "that fairy" in Sunday school

I believed i was jesus reborn, i dont know why but i truthfully believed that I was soooooooo special that i was the messiah and that god had send a girl this time because the boy had failed. My parents finally found out i was a fruitcake when in an argument with my dad I yelled "you can't sent me to my room cause you're not my real dad" and informed him that God was my dad.

My little brother was learning the Lord's prayer for his First Communion, and misheard the "hallowed be thy name" part as "Howard be thy name". Our school bus driver was named Howard. He told me later that he used to feel sorry for all the other kids who weren't lucky enough to have God driving them to school like we did.

When I was little I refused to believe that the words God and Father were synonmous, this was sort of odd as I went to preschool at my church and I even remember having an argument with my friend over it. She insisted that God was my father while my 3 or 4 year old self knew that my dad was not God, especially since his name was not God but John.
