Appellation Chosen

The Jews tell us that they are chosen: by God.
Christians tell us that Jesus loves us, and that Jesus forgives Christians, and that they are Christians: and that therefore, they are forgiven.

This is familiar human behavior, is it not? Surely any kleptocrat anywhere could translate our middle eastern and western characters into Hindu or Buddhist or Shinto equivalents. Someone is always telling someone that they’re special, and rules are in a sorry state but that they are the exception to the rule.

I don’t want to hear the Jews tell me that they are chosen. If God has chosen them, I want to hear it from God.
I don’t want to hear the Christians tell me that they are Christian. I want to see God say it, and Jesus repeat it, or visa versa, at Judgment.

Then I want skeptics to be free to stand up and examine God, and Jesus, and the Christians, and the Jews, and employ scientific methods to test any of the propositions in evidence.
Then I want other skeptics to be free to stand up and examine science, and the scientists.

Then I want to see, clearly and unimpeachably, who’s Chosen! who’s God! who’s Christ!
And who are God’s messengers!
And I want God’s messengers, science’s messengers, truth’s champions, to stand identified: unambiguously, unimpeachably:
So that everyone has to acknowledge them: and I won’t have to keep telling you myself.

Seems to me that some modicum of honesty is requisite to intelligence. If we look in the mirror and see not kleptocrats but Christians, we’re still in the same old trouble.
