When I was little, on days when we visited my grandmother, we would go to a different church than we usually did. At the back of this church, on the second level, on the balcolny, there was a huge gold organ. I thought it was the gate of Hell.
When my mum was little she grew up in a convent school. If a child had fallen over they would go into the convent to get patched up. Cus the nuns were very old there were lots of lifts and one of them was glass. My nanna had told my mum that nuns are very special people that are married to God. So when she saw nuns 'coming out of the ground' she so knew why God had married them!
I went to preschool in the basement of a church in my earlier years, so every day we would learn a little about God or Moses or another Bible story. Every day we were told 'God is watching!'
One day at snack time, we were all sitting at 'The Big Table' (there were around 30 of us) and at one end, there was a big platter with apples on it. On my side of the table, there was a plate of cookies. Ine of the teachers warned us,
"Only one apple each, God is watching!"
I took a piece of paper and wrote (I had just learned how to spell and sound out words recently):
'Tak az meni cookyz az yu want. Godz waching tha appls.'
I put it on the cookie plate and everyone started eating the cookies. I was scolded by one of the teachers but got to keep the note as a keepsake.
I used to believe that there were only 3 religions. Being Jewish, Christian, and Evil. since my dad didn't like going to church with us, i thought he was jewish cuz i knew he wasn't evil.
when i was little i went to a church with pastors. one of them was pastor mike, but everyone just called him pastor, i thought his first name was pastor and his middle name was mike.
I used to believe that if I went into my Jewish friend's Synagogue God would send a bolt of lightning to kill me.
My Mom is a Protestant and my Dad's a Catholic; when I was little me and my sister always used to go to church with my Dad and I never understood why my Mom never came. So when I was about 5 my friend stayed over on Saturday night and came to church with me, my sister and my Dad and asked why my Mom didn't come so I announced infront of the whole congregation proudly "Because she's a PROSTETUTE!", evidently we never went to that church again.
When I was small I believed that the priest takes a big host during consecration and performs a miracle by making it small and many for all the people in church.
Whenever we went to my cousins house we would have to travel over the highway and there was one specifically large and lit up church that always caught my eye and i always believed it was disneyland...meanwhile we live in Windsor Ontario Canada....
When we were in church, about to have offering, the preacher said "Let us give unto God." I thought the ushers sat the plates there after and God beamed up the money into heaven.
My knowledge of other religions was very limited as a child. :) While attending the early years of Catholic Grade School I always assumed that public school children were "Publics"....
When I was 6 my best friends mother said: "Sarah I know your Mom is Catholic but what religion is your Dad"? I replied: "Well my Dad is public"! I thought that if you went to a public school it meant you were public.
I used to believe that no matter how old i got, or how smart i was - i would NEVER ever be able to do two things: learn all the prayers they said at mass, and drive a car. Those two things were just the hardest things in the world. I used to try to plan how I would live not being able to drive - or talk along at church, and how i'd have to pretend i could.
When I was younger I thought that you had to be Italian to be Catholic because all the Catholic people I knew were Italian.
when i was small... i used to believe that the host at church were white choclate buttons... and my cousing used to believe that it was cheese... one christmas she asked my mother if she could go up for some cheese as she was hungry...
I used to think that the speakers at the kingdom hall of jehovahs whitnesses were always telling a story, because they would always quote the bible by saying "the bible says that..." So I imagined a black book saying somthing.
when i was little my friend told me that when you get baptized, they kept you underwater until you caught a fish in your mouth. and i believed him, it took me a long time to figure out that was wrong
I used to believe that Jerusalem, Egypt Babylon and all other great cities of the bible are in heaven and all the stories of the bible took place in heaven
i used to belive that in churches, under the sits there is satan. and if i look down satan will take me into hell.
I used to think that the "Father, Son and holy spirit" was the "Father, Son and holy speaker" so when ever i saw black stereo speaker i thought it was the holy spirit.
