Was religion originally intended to be about egos?
Question by Gorgeoustx Go Spurs Go!!: Was religion originally intended to be about egos?
“Buddhists try to overcome ego, yet most other religions are the opposite in that they say “we are the best, and the only true religion that is really right…really…so believe us or else”. Ego is the problem because it is basic to most religions.” – Mikenanda
Answer by Jaeh
I think it depends on the particular gods being worshiped. It is certain that Jehovah’s egoism has spread to his followers. But there are certainly many other faiths and philosophies that do not share this perspective.
