Christians isn't God against prejudice and bible thumping?

Somewhere in Deuteronomy,did not memorise the verse…God says something like this to Israel(not verbatim)..you are my portion out of the inheritance,I picked you out for myself and left other parts each under the stewardship of a heavenly being. In effect God is saying though Israel is his chosen…all other nations be it China and the far east(Buddhists and Taoists) ,Indian subcontinent (Hindus), Middle East (Islam) or pre Christian Africa ,Oceania and the New world faiths(traditional/shamanism) are all preordained by God to have their people have small ‘gods’ watching over them……This is further repeated in Psalm 82….when he spoke to the angels
Plus all other faiths by their very nature look out for man’s well being,peaceful coexistance and eternal improvement.
Based on these is it right for Christian zealots and bigots to bible thump decrying all others as false faiths??
wingcruncher…I know the verse you mention and no it’s not the one.The one I mentioned is stated in almost the exact way I put it.Keep looking
Secondly God spoke ‘the ye are gods all of you ,children of the most high’ twice. Jesus said so to the masses in the NT and again said that to the angels before man was created.That verse cannot refer to any earthly king because God stands in the congregation of the mighty, he judgeth among the gods. This in no way speaks of anyone equal to God,he cannot stand among men and call them gods!
ponder the psalm don’t assume

  1. Only one rose again from the dead and that was Jesus Christ he has victory over death and this is good news that should be told.

  2. small gods?
    Jesus said He is the ONLY way to the Father. You must place your faith in Christ to have your sins forgiven, a justified relationship with the Father, get the imputed righteousness of Christ, inherit the kingdom of God, and have eternal life in heaven.
    All other paths lead to death.
    This is Truth. If you choose to disagree with the Truth and call it names, like prejudice, that is up to you…but it does not change the fact.

  3. Whilst you bring recall to Deuteronomy, in ch 4 of that book in v39 it states ” Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the Lord is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other”
    The passage you refer to and misquote is v19-20 of ch 4 when Mose is telling the hebrews,” and when you look up at the sky and see the sun,moon and stars – all the heavenly array – do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshipping things the Lord your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven. But as for you, the Lord took you and brought you out of the iron smelting furnace, out of Egypt, to be the people of His inheritance, as you now are.
    As for your reference to psalm 82 I do not know which psalter you are reading but there is no reference to God speaking to angels in this psalm. Asaph is attributed to this psalm and he is calling on God to bring justice to the world particularly to those in authority who do not obey God’s commandments.
    As for false faiths, Islam, Judaism and Christianity worship the same God, Allah, Yahweh, Jehovah each recognise Him as the only true God. Unfortunately, over time mankind has “altered” the true message of God which is to Love Him with all your heart, your mind and your soul and to love your neighbour as yourself
