    According to the Bible not only was Israel NOT God's only chosen people they weren't even first in line.

    Isaiah

    19:21
    And the LORD shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the LORD in that day, and shall do sacrifice and oblation; yea, they shall vow a vow unto the LORD, and perform it.
    19:22
    And the LORD shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to the LORD, and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them.
    19:23
    In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.
    19:24
    In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land

    This turns everything totally upside down for me. Bu it confirms the idea that God is not a respecter of persons and that Israel has truly usurped her position and supplanted people who were before her even in God's eyes.

    Why do preachers encourage us to read the Bible when they have no idea what is in it.

    All the false one's?????????????? this is how these arguments keep getting started, it's with the name calling. All I did is show sister River respect, so why should that effect you in a negative way????

    Doctrines of Demons??????? the sister quoted the BIBLE - so if that is the doctrine of demons you are referring too, I wish you well brother!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Did not the man say that ALL acripture is inspired by God. And didn't he say this several hundred years before there even was such thing as a Bible. So what does "all" mean? Apparently the councils of Laodecea and Nice who put our Bibles together did not want us to read ALL SCRIPTURES because then we really would know the truth about what God thinks of the Black man. You know the saying--they don't care how much we know about them. They just don't want us to know about ourselves.

    Just as the Torah (Old Testament) has names for God that reflect His attributes (Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Rafah etc) the Kemetic (Egyptian) scriptures also have names for God that reflect his attributes (Horus, Ma'at etc). God is the great I AM. This is the eternal sentence which each of us completes (and by complete I mean come to realize and understand) according to the experiences we have when we coome into contact with God. Abaham experienced God as his provider and so called Him Jehavah Jireh. Why do we demonize those who have the same encounters just because they are using a different language. Do we demonize the Spanish for saying comida when we say food? Yes in fact as Americans we do just that.

    None of us lives long enough to experience all there is to experience of I AM. So He has made it possible for each of us to experience something of who He is. He gave us language and the propensity to name our experiences so we could share them with others. Instead we demonize one another and deny their experiences. In truth we are demonizing and denying a part of God.

    God does not contradict himself . He says " have no other gods before me"
    so that means he is against worship of idols like the ones found in Egypt, Rome,Greece ,etc.

    This is the verse Jesus appealed to when the Jews tried to stone Him.

    Why did God say ye are gods if in fact ye are not gods? Did He lie or are ye gods? And if God said ye are gods who are you to say ye are not gods? There are no gods beside Him and there are no gods before Him. But apparently there are gods under Him and ye are those gods.

    No God does not contradict Himself but many christians do when they follow the white man's standards for what is and is not scripture.

    That you think the Egyptians worshipped idols shows that you really don't know too much about them. They worshipped one God but referred to Him by many names just as we do (Jesus, Yeshua, Immanuel, Son of Man, Prince of Peace, Lamb, Lion, Elohim, Jehovah, Yahweh). If we do the same thing they do then we are in fact doing the same thing they do. And if you demonize what they do you are in fact demonizing what you do.

    You are gettinga caught up on the word "gods." It is in their culture to recognize each aspect or attribute of God but they recognize these different aspects as reflections of one God. As Christians we face the same objection when we try to explain that the Trinity is only one God. When we are baptized the preacher baptizes us in the name of the Father, in th name of the Son and in the name of the Holy Spirit. Why does he call each one out individually if they are all one God? You cannot answer that question without answetring the one you just asked.
