At church, one line in a prayer was “forgive us our sins”, but I thought we were all saying “give us your cents”. And then I would say/think, ‘but that’s all I have! I don’t want to give my cents away!’ lol
When I was young, the woman teaching us in church would tell us to let Jesus into our hearts. I was completely confused by this, wondering how Jesus could come into ALL of our hearts, because he was only one person. Then I came up with the strange idea that he'd place each one of his body parts into our hearts so that he'd be with everyone. As I got older I became more aware of spirituality and figured out I was wrong.
I used to believe that Jesus lived in the tower of the church
When I was young I went to a Catholic school and the only other type of school I knew of was a public school. One day I asked my cousin, "Are you Catholic?" When she answered "no" I said, "Well then you must be public."
My sister used to believe that nuns didn't have feet, she went to Catholic school and thought the nuns floated along (they wore long black habits then), she was very surprised when a young nun joined a jump rope game and she was her springing off FEET!
When I heard the priest lived at the church, I thought it meant he actually lived in the sanctuary. I assumed he slept on the organ.
i was raised a jehovah's witness and therefore never celebrated holidays. my parents were very vague on their reasoning for this and never really explained it to me that well, so i had the idea that christmas was actually a day that christians worshipped the devil on accident (he tricked them into it). one day i was visiting my cousin and she had a baby doll that i wanted to play with but she wouldnt let me and said it was because she just got it for christmas. i then FLIPPED OUT screaming and crying that she had to throw it away because "satan tricked her and hid a demon in it".
When I was young I went to a Catholic church where they served communion. Communion is when they would give church members a small piece of bread which represented the body of Jesus Christ. I used to believe when I ate the piece of communion bread that I was actually eating a part of an arm or a toe off of Jesus's body.
when i was little i thought that jesus only died for me and no one else and that is why i was there, because i almost died when i was born, and i thought that he died to save me
I used to believe that if you didn't go to church enough the nuns would trap you by doing cartwheels all around you.
My families church has a large organ with lots of pipes growing up i thought that the pipes were cages holding in prisoners that were so bad they had to live in a church
i used 2 think that we r dolls in gods play house and he used 2 play with us and watever he did 2 us we would have 2 do it.
i used to belive that when you go to church you ate

I asked someone what the silver fish logo on the backs of cars meant when I was about 10, I was told it meant the owners were in the British Angling association. I beleived this till I was about 25...
When I was young our family went to church every sunday.And every sunday the whole church said there prayers.there was a part wich was "pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death"I thought that everyone was praying for my family.I finaly ask and till this day i still get teased about it.
I used to believe that God's name was Harold, because of the song "Hallowed be thy name". Sounds a lot like "Harold be thy name" if you really think about it.
Since we receive bread at Mass, I thought he was called "Jesus Crust" Seemed pretty obvious!
When I was very small but of talking age..my Dad and Mom took me into a Catholic Church. As I saw the Father coming down the hall I believed him to be Count Dracula. Maybe thats why I grew up Baptist. :-/
When I was a little kid I took the whole make everyone go to church thing quite seriously, and I kept trying to get a millionaire friend of my dad to go. He would always say that the roof would fall in if he walked into a church. I was convinced that he believed this to be true and that he thought his being fat would somehow compromise the integrity of the building. So I told him that there were many fat people who go to our church and It hasn't fallen in yet. My dad was totally embarrassed by my saying this but his friend practically gave himself a heart attack from laughing so hard. I learned much later that he was probably talking about not fitting in because he was a totally pervy party animal.
I used to believe that the Mormon Temple in Washington DC was Disney World. It sure does from the belt way.
