When I was little, my mom and my Sunday School teachers always told me that Jesus was in my heart and in everyone else's. One day I asked my mom how they separated Him into such tiny pieces in order to get a part of Him inside every single person in the world. She looked at me like I was insane before clearing up the confusion. :-P

I used to believe God had a bag of sugar like substance and sprinkled it on Earth.

We live in the city and when my son was about 7, the sirens around the city went off for their monthly tests to make sure they were all working. "This is a test of the severe weather alert...this is just a test", well my son was outside playing when it went off and ran inside the house and told me and my husband that "God was talking outside", it was the cutest thing ever.

As a little kid I had a book called "Bad Nose Bill" and for some reason I thought that God looked like him (you can find pictures on Google image search). To this day when I picture God in human form I tend to automatically picture him with a wide-brimmed hat

I used to believe that Jesus lived in the bathtub drain in my parents' bathroom.

No reason why. I guess he liked it.

I did strongly believe that the road I walked on must have also been walked on by Jesus when he was on earth and going round on his travels. And I even tried to walk in such a way that I thread exactly on his footsteps. I just did not understand at a young age that something that was in place in the here and now - like that road - was not there 2000 years ago.

When I was little during a discussion about god with my mother she told me that "god is everywhere"

I became extremely concerned and asked her, "so if I step on the grass do I hurt god?"

I found out pretty early that there was no such thing as santa or the tooth fairy so I thought that God was just another made up story to make me behave.

This didn't go over too well since my grandpa's a preacher.

I was raised Protestant and was always scared of those ladies in black and white. I thought they were called "Numbs". That belief went on for quite awhile!

when i was young i would picture God as a young man with a purple jumper with a white capital letter G on the front that stood for God, and he had a dark brown bowel cut. i dont know where that image came from though.

I remember a sermon in which the minister said: "When I was a little boy, sometimes I would wake up and find the world so quiet and still, I thought that maybe the Second Coming of Christ had been and gone, and left me behind. So I would sneak into my parents' room, and see if they were still there. If they were, I knew it was all right. I never looked into my sisters' room, because I thought it would be touch and go with them."
As I said to him after church, "You must have had a terrible conscience."

I was brought up Catholic and attended Catechism when I was very young. Anyway, when I was about six or seven years old our teacher told us that we always had to be good because God was EVERYWHERE watching us. She said it in that ominous tone of voice that grown-ups use when they're trying to drive a point home.
This terrified me. I had visions of God watching me go to the bathroom, getting dressed, taking a shower, etc. I decided I was going to have to start hiding from him so I started changing my clothes in my closet. One day my mom caught me and asked me what I was doing and when I explained to her what I was told she told me, "God saw you naked when you were first born, He doesn't care. Now come out of there and get dressed." After that, I didn't have a problem. Of course, now I'm a grown up and I have since stopped believing in the Catholic Church and I'm on the fence about God.

I used to ask my mother how God could hear everybody's prayers, since we were all praying at the same time. She said, "Oh, God is everywhere." That was when I started thinking of God as being grossly obese.

Until I was 8, I thought Jesus was a woman. They told me he was nice and kind to people. I didn't know any men like that.

Sometimes God looked like Rafi, the children's singer, and sometimes like Ella Fitzgerald.

Before geography really sank in at about nine, I used to think that Jerusalem was in South America somewhere, most often Chile as that was the one South American country I knew. I thought that Jerusalem had to be this big expansive place and everything in Europe was taken. My parents were rather confused at my versions of Christmas and Easter.
