I received a rebuttal to my post on Philippians 2:6,7. The person said I was correct that the lesson was one of humility but then my reasoning derailed beyond that. He claimed that Jesus, as God, did indeed make himself lesser than himself in that he went from being God (in heaven), to being human. He asserted this is exactly what Paul meant when he wrote that Jesus "took on a slave's form..."
Note: Another interesting point about John 14:10 (linked above), is how other versions render it. If we want to take Jesus’ words literally in this passage, then we’d have to believe that the Father was actually inside Jesus. So again, if the Father was inside Jesus, then why would Jesus raise his eyes and pray heaven-ward? In fact, why would he pray at all, seeing as he was/is God? Clearly the trinity teaching and/or the equality of the Father and Son teaching is not logical, not scriptural and certainly not something the early Christians believed.
