cheery picking translations I see.Your proof he was equal is this verse. You can cherry pick the version if you like but that is not proof.
Where's the proof?
- He was in the form of God; yet he laid no claim to equality with God, 7 but made himself nothing, assuming the form of a slave. (Revised English Bible)
- For the divine nature was his from the first; yet he did not think to snatch at equality with God, but made himself nothing, assuming the nature of a slave. (New English Bible)
- His nature is, from the first, divine, and yet he did not see, in the rank of Godhead, a prize to be coveted; (Knox)
- who, subsisting in the form of God, did not esteem it an object of rapine to be on an equality with God (Darby)
is not that the same thing you accused me of roger ?
