Is the Jewish Tribe More Important Than Other Tribes?
THIS IS AN EMAIL FROM A THEIST, ARGUING FOR THE SUPERIORITY OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE
The Atheist Writes:
One of the greatest fallacies in the world of Christian theology, especially the one where jesus is deemed the son of god, is that the god (of the Biblical Abraham) had chosen some tribe (israelites), and thus they are to be seen as more important in some way to the many other tribes of the world. This is simply not true.
There is not logic at all in supposing that any tribe is a chosen tribe of some supernatural phenomena. If you are a right thinking Kenyan, a proper argument should be made for all men, all societies, all creeds, tribes being equal, and being capable of living to their full potential.
As an ATHEIST, i reject the view that Jews are to be viewed any different from any other tribe in the world.
Odanga Jamagula (Obviously a Theist) Responds:
Of course you are as usual arguing from the viewpoint of one who has no consideration for the biblical take on the working of God in the world. See, God has His plan and ways of doing things. I don’t particularly expect you to go along with that, but it will do willy-nilly.
Now, God’s plan for redemption begins with Seth all-through to Noah then to Shem then to Abraham and finally ends with Jesus on the cross. I can’t not overemphasize the work of Jesus on the cross lest I give you the idea that you can easily get away with for being a free-thinker. You think christianity is stiffling, fine. But to us who are being continually saved it is our victory that we rejoice upon. Victory over the debilitating power and clutch of sin upon our souls, the sting of death which has been neutered by Jesus’ resurrection.
AND all of that has been made possible because God elected to use Abraham’s descendants for the purpose. The choice of Abraham wasn’t an arbitrary selection rather it was a divine election and well within God’s right to choice (atheists react like God has no right to choice).
Live with it or persist in your lofty ignorance, but the TRUTH is the Jews are the reason we enjoy the grace of God. It is your lost if you think otherwise. Their rejection of Jesus Christ all work within the broader perspective of God’s plan for redemption.
