Jews or Gentiles (Non-Jews) the Chosen People?
Many Bible followers degrade God by claiming God is a “Racist”. These Bible believers have been tricked by selective passage preaching Rabbis and Christians.
The insulting deception is, that those who are ethnically Israeli, have a higher, unconditional standing with God, above all other ethnicities of the world.
What these Judaic and Christian Prejudice Preachers avoid telling us is, many times in the Bible, God states that the non-Israelis have a higher, more righteous, more blessed standing with God than the Israelis do;
One notable case is the Canaanite priest Melchizedek, who is called “a priest of God Most High” (Gen. 14:19-20).
Also, God reveals himself to Abimelech, king of Gerar, and Nebuchadnezzar, king of Bzbylon, in the form of a dream (Gen. 20:3; Daniel 4). The Midianite priest Jethro becomes Moses’ father-in-law and offers sacrifices to the God of Moses. After the Exodus, he encounters Moses at Horeb and, using God’s covenant name, praises God for his deliverance (Ex. 18:10-11).
Although Balaamis a pagan Mesopotamian, God communicates to him (Num. 22:18-20), appointing him as a Prophet.
Job lives in the land of Uz, perhaps during the time of the patriarchs, yet apparently having no contact with them. Nevertheless, God speaks to him directly and calls him “my servant” and “a blameless and upright man who fears God and shuns evil” (Job 1:8).
Amos affirms that God is not a racist and that all nations, including Israel, are under His judgment (1:3-2:16). In a blatant contradiction to the claim that Israel is chosen above all nations, God states that He has been active in the history of other nations as well:
“Do you Israelites think you are more important to me than the Ethiopians ?" asks the LORD. "I brought you out of Egypt, but have I not done as much for other nations, too? I brought the Philistines from Crete and led the Arameans out of Kir”‘ (Amos 9:7).
The eschatological promise of Isaiah predicts Egypt and Assyria worshiping together along with Israel as the “people” and “handiwork” of God and as a “blessing on the earth” (Isa. 19:23-25).
Further proof that Israelis are not unconditionally preferred over non-Israelis is in the book of Samuels;
"And Samuel said to him, "The LORD has torn the kingdom of Israel from you this day, and has given it to a neighbor of yours, who is better than you." 1 Samuel 15:28, and (Jos 13:1)
Non-Israelis were even made superior to Israelis by God;
"And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he sold them into the hand of the Philistines and into the hand of the Ammonites" Jos 10:7
Even in the New Testament, Gentiles are given a higher status than the Jews;
"And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian." (Luke 4:27)
In conclusion, God is not a Racist who unconditionally prefers one race above another, racist ideologies like the KKK or Nazism or Zionism needs to be revealed as hateful bigot ideologies, and the international love from God needs to prevail above these false racist selective Bible interpreters.
