In answer to the question, "What happened to the people who lived before Jesus came?" He replied, "God understands that they didn't know about him. They were following what they were told by parents and other people they trusted so he has taken them to heaven. But Jesus has come to us, so we must have faith to get to heaven."
At that point I realized Jesus never showed up for me and I was simply believing people I trusted who had never seen Jesus either.
I was about 9 years old.
