How Can Jesus' Death Save Us If He Is not God? [1 page]

The value of Christ's sacrifice lay in his human nature. So to insist that Jesus had to be God for his sacrifice to have value flies in the face of Paul's writings. If it is within the purposes of God to provide salvation by His Son, how can we whose thoughts are beneath His thoughts question and challenge His way of doing things?

Is Philippians 2.5-9 about a Pre-Existent Being?

PHILIPPIANS 2:5-9 is best read from a word for word Greek interlinear translation. Because of a docetic and often trinitarian pre-existence bias, our current translations do not accurately express the thoughts of these verses. Of course, some translations are better than others and all render many parts of these texts accurately.
