Does anyone know why God was so selfish to choose Jesus as his only son, why didn't he choose me or you?

Isn't that a bit not...godly. Who chooses who will be pure and who will not, I think god loved everyone the same, then why is it that he chooses one over the other...don't you think jesus is so lucky because "God" has favorites.....why are not acceptable to be his only child? and who says that we are all born a sinner...somethin about that is fishy, think about it....

Update:

really? are you guys trying to tell me god is 3 person in one? thats awkward...how do you explain something like that...

Update 2:

Obviously, i didn't think before asking this question...This is the religous section, so of course i'm going to find a lot of people with concrete beliefs, i'm just lookin for someone with a different approach, who actually thinks...

    People have been writing for centuries trying to explain the Trinity, One God in Three Persons, but there it is. Accept it or reject it, there it is. Some can't accept it, and so they deny one of the central, core, doctrines of the Christian faith.

    It was not a matter of His choosing Jesus, but the Second Person of the Trinity, the Son, choosing to become man; it's called the Incarnation, God became man.

    The words "only son" come from John 3:16

    "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life."

    The term "only begotten" might have better been translated from the Greek as "one of a kind," mono - "one" and geneses "of a genus." Jesus was not only God's "only Son", he was also God's one of a kind Son. Jesus was unique because He was God from before time. You are not God's unique Son, because you are terminal in origin, not from eternity.

    John 1:1-14

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    2 He was in the beginning with God.

    3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.

    4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.

    5 The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

    14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

    Jehovah (aka Christ) and Lucifer (aka Satan) both offered to do the job of helping us get back into heaven after this life. Lucifer wanted to force us all to behave and get back without losing a single soul, and then he wanted the glory. Jehovah said he would give us the choice, would show us the way, and the glory of those saved would be the Father's. We all voted. Lucifer lost, and he and those who voted for him started a war and were cast out of heaven. THe fact that you are here with a physical body shows that you voted for Jehovah. Jehovah was God's eldest son, and is probably the most intelligent, the most wise, the most loving, and we should be grateful that He gave His life for us. We chose him as our leader and Savior.

    As for being born sinners, that is false doctrine taught by many churches today, as is the teaching that we are punished for Adam and Eve's "sin". Babies are born innocent and are not accountable for sins until they are old enough to know right from wrong. Nor should babies be baptized - it is not necessary. We are all responsible for our OWN sins and not for Adam's choice (which wasn't really a sin, as it was necessary to progress).

    God was not selfish to choose Jesus as His son, because the sacrifice had to be without blemish "But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot." (1Peter 1:19) as Jesus was perfect "For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities ; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin" (Hebrews 4:15) ; one the other hand we are all sinners "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23) "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all" (James 2:10). We can become sons of God if you believe in Him "But as many as received him, to them gave he the power to become the sons of God,even to them that believe on his name" (John 1:12) God has no favorites, he loves everybody "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (2Peter 3:9)

    Because he was without sin, we arent. Because Jesus was God in the flesh, something we cant be. The Bible says we are all born sinners, its in our very nature, yes, from BIRTH. We are NOT less special than Jesus, we were SO special, God loved us SO much, he gave his son, his spirit in the flesh, to DIE for you. You would have rather been the one to suffer?

    You sound like you have a lot of hostilty towards God, and I can see why He chooses favorites. He chooses those who love Him, believe in Him, and do Good.

    As far as Jesus being the only Son of God--that is not true. Jesus was a Prophet of God, just as Moses was a Prophet. God has no sons, no daughters, and no partners--He is One.

    His ways are not our ways. You can't fit God into your box of acceptable behavior. And we have free will, so we choose to be pure or not to be pure.

    As for being Jesus, I could never have carried out His mission.

    Let me ask you this, if you knew you were God Incarnate, would you be able to lay that aside for 33 years, be humbled completely, beaten and tortured, then crucified? Oh and you would have to live those 33 years being aware of your power, but not committing one single sin. Not one.

    I'll just accept his salvation, and be grateful, thanks anyways.

    I can not do what other propehts can do, I can not do what Isa/Jesus can do.

    All human are born without sin, once they grow older, they start to make sins, no human on earth is perfect and will always make sins...that s why they say we are all born sinners.

    Nothings fishy, we just have to pray to God that He will be able to forgive our sins.

    Right from birth, there is only one thing we care about, and it is all about ourselves. We are so selfish - right to the core of our being. Give me, give me, give me.

    God has no glint of selfishness. Quite the opposite - He gave His only Son to die on a cross. He made the ultimate sacrifice of allowing his Son to suffer so that we could be cleansed of our sin and live eternally with Him. That's the most unselfish act I can think of.

    Taking it one step further, since God allowed His only Son to suffer and die on the cross, who do you think God favored more - His Son or those He came to save?

    Think about it....

    Cause we are merely God creation.

    Sinner we are as what we have done in our previous life, and we are back here to repent and to return to the God's side.

    Jesus died for his own kind.He is the one that deserve great respect.

    What Human can do now it to pray hard, do good deeds and to repent for the things that they have done are wrong inorder to return to God's side. Nothing is fishy as it is the cycle of life
