When I had to make my first communion I was scared because they say the body of christ, and i thought it was his real body, i thought it was thin slices of his arms and legs, and i hoped they would run out before i made my communion so i would not have to eat jesus.
My best friend was Catholic. ONe day he said to me, "I'm a Catholic and I go to Catholic School. What are you?" I replied, "I'm a Public and I go to Public Schoool."
That you start out Catholic and after you reach a certain age you then become Protestant.
When I was 5 years old, my minister's name was Pastor Luthro, and the church was named Trinity Lutheran Church. When the pastor left and a new one arrived, I could not figure out why they didn't re-name the church.
when i was about 12 or 13 my parents out of the blue decided that I had better start going to sunday school.
the friday before I had a Physics lesson at school where we were taught about gravity and did experiments on floating objects - anyway the following Sunday my sunday school lesson was about the miracle of Jesus walking on water to which i started up a scientific discussion about how impossible this would be and how it was all a lie - I then proceeded to go through all of the miracles and denoucing them with my new found scientific knowledge - the teacher had to send all of the other children out of the class so they didn't have to listen to the voice of a non believer and the priest was called out of service to telephone my mum so she could come and get me - there you would think the embarrasment ended but no to my horror my rather firey mother turned up in the front of the church where she proceed to hurl abuse at various members of the congregation, who had come out to see the spectacle, and defended my arguments with the priest down to the last.
I never went back and shortly after that my family moved to another parish !
At church, after (or maybe before??) everyone had taken their communion and you'ld turn to people around you skaing their hands saying 'Peace be with you', I misunderstood....as a child I used to shake people's hands and say 'pleased to meet you'. Thing is, my parents would encourage me to do it more for comedy value, and i didnt understand for ages what was so funny.
I used to believe that the difference between Catholics and Protestants were that Catholics used microphones to talk to God!
I used to believe God lived in the altar, because ordinary folk were never allowed beyond the altar rail. One night I crept into the church and peeked under the altar cloth to find a very ordinary looking table underneath. That's when I started to get very suspicious about religion.
When I was very young, I used to hear adults refer to church as "the house of God", so one day when my sister wore new shoes to church I asked her on her return - "well, what did God think of your new shoes?"
I used to believe that at night when the lights went on and lit up the church that is was God shining down from heaven.
religuously, i used to believe catholics were different, martians practically, even though i played with them every day, it got worse before it got better
I used to believe that the ringing of the bells in the Catholic church service were to wake people up.
It seemed very plausible to me. I was bored stiff.
The church in my hometown had a golden ball ontop of its tower. I believed that there was a huge treasure hidden inside the ball. And I would think of ways to reach the tower to get to the treasure.
I don't know why but when i was 5 i used to think the place where you kneel to pray was were kids sat.
When I was very little I used to believe that if I stood by the statues in the church they would come alive and give me a piece of coltsfoot rock. I Still have no idea where this came from but I remember feeling annoyed when I never got any rock.
When I was young, in our Anglican church we had a priest from Australia. I honestly thought that he said the word "ply" instead of "pray" in his sermons! I asked Mother if he was talking about plywood! She said, "no, he said pray!"
i was brought up a roman catholic and so i worshipped god. but this made me believe that anyone who was not a catholic actually worshipped the devil.
I have no earthly idea why I believed this but when I was a very small child and my parents first started taking me with them to mass, I didn't know the priest was a real person. I thought he was a robot.
I used to believe that after the offering was taken at church, the priest would put the basket of money on the altar and leave for the night. Then God would reach down with his huge hand and take the money at night when the church was empty.
I used to believe all people were either Catholics or Publics
