Chosen ones? Like pre-destination chosen ones, or those destined to hold the power of Castle Greyskull? Can you give us a Christian branch to work from?
God never said he created everyone equal, He said he created Man/woman in the image of him
If you're talking about Jews, they were chosen for the purpose of bringing forth the One Who was to come save us, Jesus.
If you're talking about predestination for salvation, that's a highly debated concept with no real resolution within the Christian community.
in the nt...jesus states he came only for the jews
matt: 15: 24
They are chosen to do His work in uniting the human family and bringing them to Him.
"19 For out of the heart come evil intentions, murder, adultery, fornication, theft, false witness, slander. 20 These are what defile a person, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile." 21 Jesus left that place and went away to the district of Tyre and Sidon. 22 Just then a Canaanite woman from that region came out and started shouting, "Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David; my daughter is tormented by a demon." 23 But he did not answer her at all. And his disciples came and urged him, saying, "Send her away, for she keeps shouting after us." 24 He answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." 25 But she came and knelt before him, saying, "Lord, help me." 26 He answered, "It is not fair to take the children's food and throw it to the dogs." 27 She said, "Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table." 28 Then Jesus answered her, "Woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish." And her daughter was healed instantly. 29 After Jesus had left that place, he passed along the Sea of Galilee, and he went up the mountain, where he sat down. "
My understanding is that Christ was sent to the Jews but upon his death, salvation was available to all.
You will note he did serve the canaanite woman.
