Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

That's an interesting discussion around the concept of "chosen people". There are certainly valid arguments on both sides. Ultimately it's a complex theological debate that reasonable people can disagree on. The most important things are promoting peace, protecting human dignity for all, and avoiding rhetoric that fosters hatred or violence against any group.

Both of these two people are "chosen" by God.

One was chosen by God to be the dirtiest, most disgusting creepy liar the earth has ever seen, to deceive people during the pandemic.

The other one was chosen by God, to save people's lives. He's very similar to Jesus.

To be chosen is a burden, not an escape hatch.

Don't hold out for a response that even touches on your question.

I'm convinced that Thinktank is an early version of chat gpt. The one that always just grabs random pictures and makes random claims just to see how many people respond to it.

I don't believe he can respond with a cohesive answer.

If you're not chosen does that mean you're useless?

I never made that up. WEF says there will be a class of people who are useless. Not chosen.

Apparently we're all chosen people. And equal to boot.
The Book of Genesis reminds us that when God created the world, God created humanity “in the Divine Image.” The soul imbued within each of us is equally divine and pure. The Jewish sages teach that this common ancestry reminds us we are all equal and worthy of the same dignity and respect. Jesus teaches us that God loves all people and is present for each of us. Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, Bahá'í, Jews, Christians and most other faith traditions share a basic tenet, which is to treat (love) others as you would be treated (loved). We as faith leaders are convinced that we are here to love and serve in God’s name, to pursue a world of peace and justice, kindness and fairness, love and compassion.
