    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!!

    The problem for being “the Chosen” is growing a big head.

    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.

    Because the OT convenants were foreshadowing of the Christ’s everlasting convenant. Atonement in the OT was based on animal sacrafices that were performed over and over. And even with the annual Yon Kippor atonement sins still needed to be “covered” by continuing sacrafices.

    When Jesus died on the cross, His death and resurrection were a final and permanent atonment of sins. that is what He meant when he said “it is finished”. All sins past present and future were forgiven for those that accept Christ as their Lord and Master. For those that understand the depravity of their sins, even “lesser” sins, and turn to Jesus to be redeemed, cleansed and forgiven.

    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.
