The Elect are the natural born jewish decendants of Abraham.
The elect are the Christians, according to the New Testament.
You believe what you do because you belong to an idolatrous cult that worships men.
The cult is the one that claims God is a breaker of oaths and a liar who does not keep his word. He never broke his covenant with Abraham, nor did he
break his covenant with Jacob.

22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come
when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit,
and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
Salvation came down through the jews, not the gentiles. Who then are the elect? The jews are, it was they home the Messiah's line came down from.
Replacement theory is an error. We did not replace them.
14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life
for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one
flock and one shepherd.
The 2 flocks become one, and there will be one shepherd. Not replacement theory, but a joining of the two.
