    Yes, the “odds” are in our favor.

    Shepherd boys, cowards, fishermen, prophets that run the other way, whores and tax collectors. And those were the chosen!!

    So you’re saying you’re chosen?

    The 12 were all men, which of the Apostles was a “whore” as you so delicately put it.

    Who said these were all apostles? David, Peter, James, John, Jonah, Rahab (called a prostitute in Joshua) the adluteress saved from stoning, and Matthew. You may wish to read all the Bible to discover the depth of the message and the availability of salvation to all.

    And the word “whore” is accurate in the use here. Jesus never minced words.

    We are ALL chosen. That was what the sacrifice was for. We have to choose to accept the gift. So, yes, we BOTH are.

    Well, Catholics hold—following St. Paul—that many of the more specific and culturally-conditioned laws need not be kept today. We trust in Jesus Christ, and the grace he brings, not in works of the Law.

    .

    On the other hand, the Ten Commandments, or the short form of the Commandments of love, express the truth that God still wants certain forms of behavior from us—not so much to earn salvation, but for our own good. So, within the culturally conditioned laws there is a kernel of eternally valid laws.
