It is Easier for a Person to Abandon their Religion Rather than their Ego

By Metropolitan Meletios of Nikopolis

It is a thousand times easier for a person
to say and admit their religion is COMPLETELY WRONG,
rather than to say and admit that their thinking 
and their life is WRONG.
It is much easier for a person to abandon their religion
rather than their EGO,
and they are always looking for a religion 
that does not jeopardize their EGO.

From the book God, Christ, Other Religions
Translation by John Sanidopoulos.
