    Ansar: The word ("morphe") translated as "form of" in fact means "very substance."

    This one indeed does say that the Christ is God. There is a problem with some passages which make no such declaration (not that they deny it, just that they don't address the issue), yet the claim is made that they do.

    A further problem arises with passages that affirm Jesus as the messiah (christ) as opposed to those which declare Jesus of Nazareth to be not God.

    However, in the passage declaring that Jesus is in morphe God, it is also stated that he became in morphe man. OK - metamorphosis is a concept well understood.

    I don't have a problem with people stating that Jesus of Nazareth was not God. The Bible only refutes the claim that he was not God before his Earthly incarnation (now there is a word that translates morphe with exactitude - odd that I hadn't noticed before now) - and of course, the Bible also refutes the concept that he was not God after his resurrection.

    God incarnate became man incarnate
