    Do you believe the purported revelation of the Christian God was a perfectly executed revelation which could not possibly have been more effective in convincing people of His existence?

    For instance, what about other tribes also being designated "Chosen People", aside from the ancient Hebrews, located in dozens of places around the world, or even hundreds or thousands, across all continents, with visions and dreams and prophets afforded to them all, and with "God" or His "Son" at some point walking among them in order to "save" them and to make the revelation convince more of the people He had supposedly created?

    Would this, for example, have been more effective than what Christians believe actually happened?

    What other tribes designated as 'chosen people' are you referring to? I didn't know there were others.

    The biblical account of the genesis of life, its creator, historic and prophetic accuracy has no equal.

    What about the OP? It's a thought exercise rather than an opportunity for Christians to reaffirm their religious beliefs. There are other threads for that. This thought exercise is not about the "accuracy" of any account.

    Nice. Do understand why the Jews were the chosen people? They were entrusted with the oracles of God.

    Sheesh.

    With your "What other tribes designated as 'chosen people' are you referring to?" question, you clearly do not understand the OP.

    My post above speaks directly to the OP, but apparently you don't like it so you're going to play the "thought exercise" card to dissimulate the fact that my post answered the whole question.

    The Word of God trumps your silly, meaningless and otherwise unsupportable assertion that there are any other viable "tribes", "Chosen People", "located in dozens of places around the world, or even hundreds or thousands, across all continents, with visions and dreams and prophets afforded to them all,..", none of which you have provided a single reference for that even remotely resembles the biblical account, nor do these rumors of such that you are saying exist have any corresponding or parallel similarities to what is taught in the scriptures of God's Word.

    You have not understood the OP. If you read it again and get what it's actually about, it would be interesting to hear your response to it. I haven't made any "unsupportable assertions" in the OP. I haven't said any "rumours" exist. That's got absolutely nothing to do with the OP. You've been hasty; you're gabbling. You've gone off half-cocked. Take a deep breath and read the OP again.

    All truth can be crossed referenced.
    Those who say jc is the only true way are narrowing the way to 'heaven'
    and miss something

    I'm happy to talk Christianity all day as long as those ideas are in sync with other spiritual ways n customs

    You constantly bitch about people "dodging the question", but here you are dodging the answer.

    Does the premise of the OP imply that God never called other nations as His special possession ?

    For instance, what about other tribes also being designated "Chosen People", aside from the ancient Hebrews, located in dozens of places around the world, ...


    If so then that expectation is not supported in the Bible.

    For instance God refers to Egypt as His people and Assyria as the work of His hands very much on par with Israel being His inheritance.

    "Blessed be Egypt My people and Assyria the work of My hands and Israel My inheritance." (Isaiah 19:20b)
