When I first heard about guardian angels, I misunderstood the concept and didn't realize that they were supposed to protect us, but rather I believed they would report to God about all the bad things we had done that day. I thought that the angels followed us around every day with pads of paper, noting our sins, and at night when we slept the angels flew off to God and ratted us out.

I used to believe my mom's friend's boyfriend was Jesus. He looked like the traditional pictures of Jesus we see in The Bible. I used to scream and hide whenever I saw him; I think because I was too little to comprehend that we knew Jesus!

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.

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

My church's pastor, who is also my sister's godfather, had a brown beard. He was also one of the kindest people I knew and still is. When I was little, I honestly thought he was Jesus.

In first grade of my Catholic school located in Illinios, it took me three weeks to clarify the following confusion: how could Abraham be the Old Testament leader of the Jewish people and the 16th President of the United States ?

I was told that God made everyone so I used to think that the lines on our palms, wrists, where our elbows and knees fold, etc. were the stitches left behind after God sewed us together.

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.

I used to believe that Satan was a snake that lived in the crack between my wall and my bed! If I didn't face the crack, he would come get me. To this day I'm still more comfortable sleeping on my left side!

I never questioned that Jesus was from anywhere else but England! - when my Dad told me otherwise I couldn't believe that someone as imprtant as Jesus could be a foreigner

When I was young I was told that Jesus was 'the light of the world', so I thought that before Jesus was born there was no sun and it was always dark so everyone had to walk around with candles.

I don't know if this counts, but...
I went to Disney World with my dance/performing arts group, and as we passed the Epcot Center for the first time, my friend Katie aid "look! Epcot!" well, I misheard her. I thought she said "look! it's God!" so until we went back a few days later, I kept pondering how odd it was that someone's idea of God was displayed so prominently in Disney World.

When I was four or five my mother tried to comfort me from bad dreams by telling me that jesus was always watching me. I became convinced that jesus was sitting on the edge of the bathtub watching me poop and finally had to be taken to the doctor when i refused to go to the bathroom for a week.

when I was really little I had a dream about willie wonka (gene wilder) being up in the clouds. He was making lots of puppets and sent them down to earth, they became people. I had for years after that thought that willie wonka was God. When I told my parents that they just laughed at me, that shatterred my little kid world.
