According to the scriptures, we had an ego problem and abandoned God.
Funny thing, that -- In every version of the book of Genesis I've ever read, it was your god that tossed Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden. It doesn't sound like A&E abandoned your god; it sounds more like they got disowned for not passing a test that they didn't have sufficient knowledge to pass until they had already failed it
You might even know people with ego problems and can imagine them not wanting to have anything to do with Heaven, eternal life, and all that.
I don't see the connection between an "ego problem" and lack of interest in eternal life. Wouldn't the desire to live forever, wanting one's ego to live on and on and on, be more
indicative of egotism?
