Most 'western' religions act as though God discovered us when Abram of Ur came along...how quaint.
Did you know that Christianity isn’t the only religion to say that God would judge the intents of our heart? Nor was it the first…not by a long shot.The Egyptians recorded, 2400+ years before the Apostle Paul, that justice would be applied by Ma’at (sometimes lesser goddesses are mentioned) weighing souls (also called the weighing of the heart) to determine whether that soul (considered to reside in the heart) of the departed would reach the paradise of afterlife successfully.
