When I was a kid parents convienced that there is a magical old guy that controls the world from the clouds. They called him God, I think. Now that I am older and don't believe in fairy tales, I know better

I used to believe Jesus looked like The statue of Lincoln. I was 3 or 4 when my family went to DC. The statue of Lincoln was the biggest person I had ever seen and it reminded me of the bible story of children sitting at Jesus' feet. I had that picture in my head for years.

As a child I had always wondered why we called God, "God" when he had a proper name.

Our Father who art in Heaven,
Harold be thy name.

For Christmas our tree topper has always been an Angel. A BLONDE angel. I had become completely convinced at age 7 that i could never become an Angel because I was born a brunette and that only blondes could go to heaven, the next year my grandma made her own Angel tree topper...... with BROWN hair thats been used ever since.

When I was young I knew Santa and the Easter Bunny and all those cool guys were always watching me, and that they always knew if i was naughty or nice or whatever. God was another story. For some reason when I was around 3 or 4 I got this idea in my head that God couldn't see me if I hid under the coveres. My mom would tuck me in and I would not be tired, so after she left I would hide under the covers all sneaky, and not sleep! I would just keep my eyes open as long as I wanted.

Man I was bad..

My cousin and me used to believe that if we dug a hole deep enough in the ground, we would reach the devil and be able to kill him. We came up with this big plan to do just that and we figured everybody would give us money to reward us for killing the devil. I think we dug about 2 feet then gave up.

From a young age, we had a hired Nanny who was lovely woman but a devout Catholic and being brought up Catholic myself my parents didn't mind her using God's power as tool against me. One day, after hitting my brother for no apparent reason my nanny said I shouldn't do things like that as God was watching me and would be very dissapointed.

For weeks afterwards I would refuse until forced to take a shower, undress or use the bathroom. Upon being asked why I was being so difficult I replied. "Because God is watching me, he should mind his own business and give me some privacy!"

When I was little I was told about God.
I was just told that he was a big man up in the sky who created everything.
I was a big Bananas in Pajamas fan then, so I pictured a huge B1 staring down from the sky....

I used to believe that everyone whose name was biblical would inevitably play out the life story of his or her namesake. Since my name is Sarah, I was convinced that I would marry a man named Abraham and have a son named Isaac. I was very upset that my parents named me after someone who had laughed at God, so around age 5 I apologized to God in advance. Also, my sister Amie was born that year, and I envied her for not being doomed to the fate of any biblical character.

I used to think that God was a Cloud that wore pink gloves and purple converses and went around the whole world just smiling.

My mom always told me "God watches you everywhere you go." I'd always answer "No, not in the bathroom because there are no windows in there." So, for years I had thought God was looking in my window every night, watching my every move with a creepy smile on his face. Sort of like a stalker.

When I was younger, I assumed that I was two days older than Jesus because my birthday was December 23rd and his was the 25th.

For some reason, I also thought that the "Holy Ghost" was Jesus' purple dog.

I used to believe that the Jesus on the Crucifixes was the real Jesus that had shrunk somehow. I would always try to feed it little bits of food because he looked really hungry and nobody ever fed him.
