IS GOD A RACIST?: The Bible is a pretty incendiary book, and contains some highly revolutionary ideas. One of those is the idea that God the Father, in His own sovereign grace and pleasure, decided to create an ethnically-identifiable race of people, the Jews, and call them for His own. Not only that, God then calls the physical land of Israel as His own, with Jerusalem its capital city in particular near and dear to His heart. Doesn’t sound very politically correct, does it? That’s because it’s not. God is not trying to appease you, and He is not saying that “all people are equal”, because they’re not. The Jews in the Bible occupy a singular and very special place afforded to no other race of people in human history. But please don’t let me try and sway you to accept my position, let’s let the Bible do the talking.
