Interesting note about "Jehovah's chosen people" the Isrealites.
Between Saul, the first king, and the end of the nations of Judah and Isreal (the two nations split soon after Soloman died) there were a total of 41 kings.
35 of those kings were directly opposed to Jehovah. They were apostates. Thats an 85% apostate rate for the leaders of God's chosen people. (See Insight on the Scriptures vol 1, pg 464-6, though further study of each king is required.)
Facts (using JW premise):
Jehovah allows apostates to govern his people. Could something similiar happen today?
Jehovah provided prophets to warn the people of their apostacy. What happened? They were persecuted, killed and shunned by who? Those same apostate kings. Does something similiar happen today?
There were two nations (Judah and Isreal). I thought there was only one "chosen people." So which nation was blessed by God in about 982 BC when Soloman's apostate sons Jeroboam (ruling Isreal) and Rehoboam (ruling Judah) were in power? Could something similiar happen today?
