Paulwa, ya gotta remember that the Bible was wrtten by ancient Jewish people, so it's hardly any surprise that they would claim to be God's chosen people. Funny that none of the holy books written by other cultures share that opinion of Israel. They all tend to think God looks more favorably on them than other folks.|
Hanging all your faith on just one ancient book and thinking it tells you everything you ever need to know about God just seems terribly shallow and limiting IMO.
