The Bible is ethnocentric

Did you overlook that Yeshua said He was only sent to the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel and commanded His disciples to avoid the Gentiles?

Did you overlook where God says to Israel that they alone are the only family He works with?

Did you overlook Paul spoke of sharing the gospel with the JEW FIRST and then the Greek?

Did you overlook the New Jerusalem will be named after the Twelve Tribes of Israel - not African or Beringian immigrant tribes?

Did you overlook where God commands the Israelites to never elect a Gentile over them?

Did you overlook that God says only men are to be ordained as ministers? Does this mean God is a respecter of persons or genders or nations?

God loves you, and you know what? He also loves everybody else. He created ALL of us.

And why are you wrestling with yourself and playing with your strawman? NOWHERE in my post do I say God doesn't love Gentiles, Blacks or other non-Whites. Why have you failed to address the LEGITIMATE ISSUES I've dared to share in that OP? Like double standards, reverse discrimination, Black racism, etc.
