...not easily understood by them without ears to hear hear or eyes to see.

Ego is who you are when the ego is controlled by SELF, SELF becomes SELFISH since man by nature tends toward sin. If you understood creation correctly, man is CREATED in the IMAGE of God, but he still has ego because he is an individual. His ego is him. Adam was Adam, he was not Eve. They both were distinct from one another in creation.


Gen 1:27
27 And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. (NAS)

Gen 1:31
31 And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was VERY GOOD. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. (NAS)

So in creation the man AND the woman CREATED, were created VERY GOOD being created IN THE IMAGE OF GOD. They had ego but the ego was not yet corrupted by SELF. So ego in itself need not be controlled by self. It is only when the ego that is controlled by SELF, that it is corrupted.
