Your Ludicrous Philippians 2:6-7 Blunders

Paul tells us that God highly exalted Jesus because of his humble obedience even unto death. This resurrected and exalted state is the "form of God" which Paul mentions in verse 6. Paul is teaching the Philippians to conduct themselves like Christ and his point is that Jesus got to be in this exalted position of the form of God not because he was seeking to obtain the prize of this exalted state and superiority over others but because he humbly served God without a thought of seeking superiority over others. The KJV is very accurate to translate the verse as "He made himself of no reputation" because that is what Jesus of Nazareth did and this is the notion Paul intends here. He made himself nothing because Jesus of Nazareth denied himself since he who humbles himself will be exalted and he who exalts himself will be humbled and that is what Paul is teaching the Philippians. Jesus of Nazareth was not exalted to be in the form of God because he regarded a harpagmos to be equal to God but because he did just the opposite and because he did just the opposite God highly exalted him and that is why he is now in the form of God. Philippians do the same and walk as Jesus of Nazareth walked.

A pre-existent God the Son and an "incarnation" are nowhere to be found on Paul's radar here. It is totally imagined into the text by brainwashed Trinitarians who are able to see nothing but what their creedal idol demands them to see.

Have this mind in you which also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, in the form of God being, not a prize did he regard to be equal to God. 7 Rather, he made himself of no reputation taking the form of a servant, in the likeness of men coming to be, 8 And found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself coming to be obedient unto death, even death on a cross. 9 For this reason also, God highly exalted him, and gave him the name which is above every name

Let the lies end and truth reign.

No it isn't. Jesus represented God here on earth before he was resurrected, glorified, and highly exalted. He represented God so well that if you had seen him you had seen the Father. That's what the "form of God" in Phil 2:6 means.

It doesn't say that, Photine.
Says no such thing.
Php 2:6-7
6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

He was by nature God, and was made in human likeness.

John 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:14
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

So you still can't tell the difference between the text itself and what you imagine into it.

Yes, we know.

Php 2:6-7
6 Who, being in very nature God.... made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

It says He was in the form of God BEFORE He became a human.

Poor translation.

That's not what it says. It says he was in the form of God.

John 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:14

God ALONE is in the form of God.
