Not necessarily a lie but just endless rules and regulations and you end up having a depressing and dark view of the world

Not my religion but my church. The pastor would always talk about God punishing you if you do bad stuff which created a fear in me. I only learned in my older years about the gracious and loving God, he's not a monster waiting to punish you - which is the view I had for a very long time

I think the biggest"lie" (I don't know if I'll call it that) is probably that you can only confess your sins to a priest. I don't agree since if God was omniscient, he would be able to hear you so you don't really need to go to a priest for that.

The very biggest lie is the obvious one of there being a god. After being brainwashed all my young life, it took a long time for me to be logical and realize that if there were an all powerful, omnipresent, all knowing god who was the least bit good, there would be no such thing as starvation, cancer, child rape or slavery just to name a few.
I was thinking if I had knowledge of these things, and I had the power, would wipe them out and I'm far from perfect. The god I was taught, is supposed to be a loving, perfect being. It didn't add up. I kicked myself at first for being so stupid, but like I said, I was brainwashed from infancy, so it was all I knew.

I know what you mean but life is without its trials. What kind of life would it be if everything is good and fun! Life won't be worth living without its challenges.

Religion is nothing but fear. It’s based primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly the wish to feel that you have a kind of father, who you have never seen and who will stand by you in all your troubles & disputes. Fear is the basis of the whole thing – fear of the mysterious, fear of defeat, fear of death. So it’s all a lie and foolishness.

Jesus was born on December 25. They didn't even have a calendar before! Whoever came up with that date anyway?!

I did not consider it as a lie. We are aware that December 25 is not the day Jesus was born. But just to commemorate His birth we have to set a date for it so we can celebrate it and make it a part of our life.
