It's pretty common I guess. :)
I used to think my mom was working with god, because she always knew when I lied and would say : God will be sad. So I assumed she and god hung out together or something. It was pretty scary, the two most powerful bosses ever.

I was told that God lived in my heart. I used to picture a little man walking around my heart like a house. Just hanging out there.

As I was growing up my grandfather loved to eat ice.So one day I asked him why did he love to eat ice all the time. He told me that because if he then he wont go to the devil because he will be to cold.I actually believed this until I was well in my teens.

when i was a kid, i saw a TV special about the US Marines stunt pilot team, the "Blue Angels", who flew F-18 fighter jets.

Because they were called "Blue Angels", i assumed that the fighter jets were, literally, "Angels", like the ones in the Bible. I had seen pictures of traditional angels in Sunday school, but i assumed that they had changed their form over the years and now looked like jets.

When i learned about the Biblical "rapture", i pictured jet fighters growing gangly cartoonish arms and swooping down from the sky to grab Christians and wisk them away to heaven.

I used to believe that groundhogs day was the day that the devil came up to earth through a hole in the ground. I would have nightmares about him visiting me as a shadow on my wall. Fortunately the dreams ended after a nice man walked out of the shadow and we became friends.

When I was younger, I used to believe that when someone went into space or an airplane went above the clouds, they were able to see Jesus' land because he lived in heaven.

I used to think God was actually called Peter, because at church, we all used to say 'Thanks Peter God'.....when really, its thanks BE to God!

In Denmark, a very common cuss word is Satan. My mum wasn't religious, but didn't care for her son to cuss, so she told me that if you call his name, he will come for you. I'm 21 years old and still get chills when someone cusses.

In grade school we learned about the tax collectors in Jesus' day. I used to think that the people working at the toll booths on the highway were our tax collectors.

When I was little and was told in church that god could see all and heard our thoughts and prayers, I thought god had a big wall and everyone on earth had their own personal screen he could watch.

I used to believe that there's an invisible man in the sky that would grant me any wish if I just knelt down and talked to him.

I was raised by my uncle who I used to believe was God. I thought when he went to work he sorted through lists of good and bad people, and then faxed these lists to Santa.

I was convinced I knew why there were no dinosaurs.
- On Noah's Ark - when they were desperate for food and thought to eat the largest animals first, they ate them all. Then they were too ashamed to include that part of the story.

When I was little I attended sunday school regularly, so I knew God sat in heaven and Jesus sat at his right hand. Wile trying to figure out how Santa, just as great as the above mentioned fit into the mix, I decided he must have sat at Gods left hand.

I used to believe that weathermen would get in a rocket with a scroll in hand, and fly up to Heaven to ask God what the weather would be like for the week. Then they would write it down and come back to Earth to report it.
