    I believe that the Bible is very clear on who God's choosen people are .. and that is the true descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. When God changed Jacob's name to Israel, God told him that "... a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins." For this reason, among others, Israel is God's choosen people and we who are Gentiles who have accepted Jesus the Christ as our Lord and Saviour have been svaed by the grace of God through the blessed body and blood of Jesus himself. We Christians are saved by faith and not works and I believe that Jesus is the only way to heaven. But do not forget what the Bible says about the "elect" - who are the 144,000 Jews (12,000 from each of the 12 tribes of Israel) who will be on earth that will be saved during the tribulation that will come. When I hear some Christians say that they are the "new choosen" people. This is not true. God's choosen people ARE the Isaelites and always will be.
