Christians insist that Bible-god is the one true god who seeks the worship of all humans the world over. Unfortunately for them, those who wrote the Bible, whether ancient humans or god himself, painted a very different picture. In fact, there is a wealth of evidence in the Bible that Bible-god was never intended for anyone other than the Israelites, the ethnic Jews. The Bible clearly states the Jews were god’s chosen people and that Bible-god is a strictly regional, tribal god who really didn’t give a damn about Gentiles (non Jews) of any kind.
In speaking of the Jews in Deuteronomy 7:6, Bible-god says:
“For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.”
When you open a bible and find the book about Ruth, you will also find out that she was a Moabite.
Moab was one of the sons of the daughters of Lot who committed incest with their father, apparently because they thought there weren't other people in the world and they should continue with the existence of humans.
Later on, the descendants of Moab turned against Israel.
Ruth, the Moabite, married an Israelite. But the Israelite died, so Ruth was free to go back with her people. The mother in law told her that she can do so.
But Ruth decided different, she told her mother in law that she was going to stay with her because for Ruth the God of Israel was her God and the people of Israel was her people.
The book of Ruth between the other books forming the bible, is essential because shows that a foreign person who doesn't belong to Israel (the chosen people) can be part of it by renouncing his gods and people's customs and adopting the customs of the people of Israel and worshiping the God of Israel.
This part is also explaining by the apostle Saul (Paul) who made an analogy of the wild and good olive trees, where some branches of the good olive tree are taken out and branches of a wild tree are inserted.
In the analogy the good olive tree is Israel, and the wild tree is the people of the nations of the world (gentiles). The apostle made the figure of people of the nations of the world inserted in Israel and be part of the same tree, in other words, the same promises.
But, of course, you left your church many years ago and today, instead of reading the bible and have your own conclusions from the reading, you prefer to read the words of a sure ignorant as it is WizenedSage.
Fortunately for you, you know now that you still have a chance just by leaving the status of "gentile" and being part of the good olive tree.
If you as a gentile are inserted as a branch in the good olive tree by your own will, I promise to buy lots of fertilizer and poured on the root area, because will be badly needed....
