My kids used to believe that Jesus was born in Sheffield,Yorkshire.I don't know why but I told them he was,I didn't think it was any different to telling them Father Christmas was real,or that dogs could fly if their wings weren't clipped

My family was never a very religious family, but nonetheless, my mom told me about god an heaven. I somehow came to think that heaven was located in the clouds. We used to travel alot before I turned 5 and started school, but everytime I was on a plane I would search through the clouds, trying to see if I could see heaven.

When I was really young, I saw the film "The Little Mermaid" for the first time. For whatever reason, I associated the priest in the wedding scene with God. From then on, I imagined that God looked like the priest. Even in my adult life, I think of any faceless major deity as the priest from "The Little Mermaid."

My sister and me were in the back seat of the car. My mother was driving. So, my sister said she was hungry. My Mother said we will be there soon. I assume she remembered the previous sunday's Sunday School Lesson of God dwelling among us. A few moment's later she uttered the classic line, "Mommy, God's in my body, and he's starving too!"

I believed that god was something that surrounded the earth, like a shell, and when we sent up the space shuttle or a rocket or anything like that, it made a hole in god, and I always wondered if it hurt god when we did that

In Norway a Cristmas carol says "I, am so happy every Christmas Eve, because then Jesus is born". This was a carol for kids, and we heard it alot. I thought for sure that Jesus was born again once a year.

When I was a kid we had to recite the creed, which said something about Jesus being "crucified under pontius pilate"
I misheard, and for years, I thought Jesus was attacked by pirates.

when i was a kid, i believed jehova witnesses were evil, because i thought that 'jehova' meant 'satan'. i was always really scared when they came to the door because they reminded me of the old man from Poltergeist.

When I was about 4 my family went on a vecation to spain. At the hotel resort we staied at there was a bartender named Jesus.
I always mixed God and Jesus up, so when I got back home I told all my frinds that God lives in spain and works in a bar.

When I grew up I went to Catholic school and was taught by nuns. They constantly told us children that if we made a face and the devil passed our face would remain like that forever. It was years before we knew otherwise

I used to think that Jesus was burried in our local grave yard because there was a statue of him on one of the graves.

Someone once told me that 666 is the devil's number and I had this shorts which had 666 on the zipper. So for a long time I was convinced that I am the devil's son.The funny part was that if you held the zipper upwards it looked like 999 but i was convinced that it is 666 so i spend a lot of time praying that I did not want to be the devil's son.
