It is not my purpose to force you to agree or believe with what’s on my websites, but rather to share my research. As the record goes: I'm Just a soul whose intentions are good. Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood. I do not write to share my research because I desire to be rich, famous, or powerful, but because investigating, studying, enquiring exploring, analysing and scrutinising, helps me learn what I don’t know. I simply love seeking, searching and researching, to discover the truth that is so rare, and become full of joy, uncovering the truth of our great GOD, and His Son’s hidden treasures, which has since caused me to become trapped in GOD’s divine love, who cannot turn back. I am Simon Brown. Amen.

Adverts are not owned by me Simon Brown. I am no longer a Trinitarian, and an independent researcher in no denomination.

Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand! Matthew 11:15.

Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the
SON of God?
1 John 5:5.
NOT GOD OR A TRINITY, but as St john has said: but he that believeth that Jesus is the SON of God? 1 John 5:5.
And as Jesus has said: ETERNAL LIFE is believing His Father GOD is the only ONE TRUE GOD alone. John 17:3. Which is the FIRST commandment one MUST believe. Mark 12:29.

Trinitarians please read Hebrews 5:11-12. About this we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food.

False Prophets and Teachers

1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. 2 Peter 2:

And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD and said: “O LORD, the God of Israel, enthroned above the cherubim, you are THE God, you alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; you have made heaven and earth. 2 Kings 19:15.


Dear friends, just to remind you, as I am a human being, I am capable of making mistakes. If you believe I am wrong, don't let it go, but please be kind and let me know. Thank you.

But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good. 1 Thessalonians 5:21.

Philippians 2:6. Yet Again, Used As Another TRINITARIAN DECEPTION.

Philippians 2:6. Yet Again, Used As Another TRINITARIAN DECEPTION.

Philippians 2:6, Codex Sinaiticus, translated by Simon Brown.


What do Trinitarians belive?

In this article, I will demonstrate how we do not need to be a scientist or Bible scholar to understand St Paul’s simple teachings, but just be an ordinary simple-minded person like me off the street.
JOIN ME & SEE ABRAHAM'S TOMB AND THE EVIDENCE OF THE BIBLE.

In fact, I will show you how the Trinitarian Bible scholars who are supposed to be trustworthy and highly educated, are the ones who need educating and teaching, and how Trinitarian Bible scholars do NOT understand this very simple teaching by St Paul.
Simon Brown.
 Who instead reveal with their own hands their confusion and deception, because they refuse to let go of their false TRINITY doctrine, which then causes them to create countless Bible CONTRADICTIONS.

Let’s first get acquainted with what is taught in the modern translations of Philippians 2:6?

Philippians 2:6. Yet Again, Used As Another TRINITARIAN DECEPTION.
Philippians 2:6. Yet Again, Used As Another TRINITARIAN DECEPTION.

The translations of Philippians 2:6. P3.

After looking at the different translations of Philippians 2:6, did you notice what I did?

The translations have THREE different interpretations, and do not give us the same understanding.

If Trinitarians are teaching the same truth, why do they often CONTRADICT each other, by the fact their translations are so different, showing they do not agree?

Which Trinitarian translation do they desire us to believe, as they don’t seem to agree with what they teach.

This is why we should not believe everything we read as most Trinitarians do, without being a Berean Jews, who examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. Acts 17:11

Lets have a quick LOOK at these translations?

New Living Translation says:
Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to.

Notice, New Living Translation says: Though he (was) God?
Does this translation mean Jesus was GOD, and Jesus gave up being GOD, but now He is no longer GOD?

Can GOD die?
We know all things are possible with GOD, but are we to believe GOD gave up being GOD to change into the son of man?
Instead of Trinitarians understanding the truth, that our great Father GOD did a far greater deed, by demonstrating a far greater love for us humans which He created, by sacrificing His LITERAL begotten perfect Son, to pay the price for our own sins.


Abraham.
Father GOD tested Abraham by asking Him to sacrifice his own begotten Son Isaac.

[[File:Sacrifice of Isaac-Caravaggio (Uffizi).jpg|thumb|Sacrifice of Isaac-Caravaggio (Uffizi)]]
[[File:Sacrifice of Isaac-Caravaggio (Uffizi).jpg|thumb|Sacrifice of Isaac-Caravaggio (Uffizi)]]    

Abraham was NOT sacrificing any part of His own, body, soul, or spirit.
But instead Abraham was foreshadowing exactly what Father GOD would literally do, and sacrifice his own begotten literal Son Isaac.

But Father GOD stopped Abraham doing what he was asked to do.
The amazing difference was Father GOD did not abandon what He was indicating and revealing of (a future event), but instead actually sacrificed His own begotten Son.

What parents could do what Father GOD did?
By giving up their own begotten child, who are loved with all thy heart, to be tortured, whipped, and stripped bare naked, nailed to a cross, while left hanging for hours, to be mocked and humiliated, not to save good people, but to pay the price that we should have paid for, with our own evil crimes and sin?

Did GOD give Himself, or His Son?
This is the mad teaching by the Trinitarians, who say the ONE TRUE GOD Himself, became a man and let people He created, torture and execute Himself on the cross, while another part of Him was still in heaven, demonstrating it would be possible to do what is impossible, and KILL a part of GOD, this is, according to the TRINITY faith.
God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it? Numbers 23:19.

Did Jesus teach He was GOD?

Contemporary English Version says:
Christ was truly God. But he did not try to remain equal with God.

Notice the translation of the Contemporary English Version says:
Christ was truly God. And yet Jesus never, ever taught He was GOD.
GOD Almighty Himself always declared He is GOD alone and there is no one like Him.

(See scriptures below, WHO IS LIKE GOD?).

To whom then will you compare me, that I should be like him? says the Holy One.
26 Lift up your eyes on high and see: who created these? He who brings out their host by number, calling them all by name; by the greatness of his might and because he is strong in power,
not one is missing. Isaiah 40:25,26.

Your way, O God, is holy. What god is great like our God? Psalm 77:13

 Are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples. Psalm 77:14.

Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, who alone does wondrous things. Psalm 72:18

For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God. Psalm 86:10

o whom then will you liken God, or what likeness compare with him? Isaiah 40:18.

And he said, “Tomorrow.” Moses said, “Be it as you say, so that you may know that there is no one like the LORD our God. Exodus 8:10

To you it was shown, that you might know that the LORD is God; there is no other besides him. Deuteronomy 4:35

And the scribe said to him, “You are right, Teacher. You have truly said that he is one, and there is no other besides him. Mark 12:32

Therefore, as to the eating of food offered to idols, we know that “an idol has no real existence,” and that “there is no God but one.” 1 Corinthians 8:4

Therefore you are great, O LORD God. For there is none like you, and there is no God besides you, according to all that we have heard with our ears. 2 Samuel 7:22

GOD Himself declares there is NO one like Him, as we have seen above.

But why then did St Paul teach in the other hand Jesus is the image of His GOD, and yet GOD Himself declared there is no one like Him?

The simple answer is given by Jesus Himself in John 17:3, when He said: This is eternal life that they know you THE ONLY TRUE GOD.

GOD IS THE ONLY TRUE GOD ALONE.
Jesus is NOT the same ONLY TRUE GOD ALONE. But His LITERAL Son.
That is why GOD Himself declared, over, and over again, there is no one like Him: (A TRUE GOD).

Jesus told us precisely what GOD declared over and over again that: there is none like you, and there is no God besides you. 2 Samuel 7:22.

Jesus never, ever CONTRADICTED what His Father taught, but instead confirmed that His Father is ONE PERSON in Mark 12:29, and NOT THREE: Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Mark 12:29.

Just as St Paul taught: yet for us there is one God, the Father, 1 Corinthians 8:6, confirming with Jesus teachings and countless scriptures in the old testament teaching GOD is GOD alone.

So we clearly see how the Trinitarian translations teaching Jesus is GOD:
1. Though he was God. YLT.
2. Christ was truly God. NLT.
Are clearly CONTRADICTING the word of GOD.

Let’s now look at what other translations of Philippians 2:6 say?

Our main focus is on the word, (form), Greek word, (μορφῇ).

Notice the difference between the translations above, from the first two translations we examined by New Living Translation and Contemporary English Version says these first translations of Philippians 2:6, were clearly teaching Jesus is GOD:
1. Though he was God. YLT.
2. Christ was truly God. NLT.

Notice how the second translations I have now presented have added in the word, (form)?
That one single word (form), now changes what the other translations were saying that Jesus is GOD.

But why you may ask?

Please hold on and I will show you shortly.

Let us see how the second translations I have presented compare with the Greek text in the oldest Bibles of the Codex Vaticanus and Codex Sinaiticus.

Philippians 2:6, Codex Vaticanus, translated by Simon Brown.

Philippians 2:6, Codex Sinaiticus translated by Simon Brown.


As we see, these translations are indeed very familiar and much the same as the Greek text in the oldest Bibles of the Codex Vaticanus and Codex Sinaiticus.


Philippians 2:6. Yet Again, Used As Another TRINITARIAN DECEPTION.

But notice what we now read in these translations:
They all have the word: existing in the (form) of God, which I have highlighted.

who, though he was in the (form) of God. ESV.

Who, existing in the (form) of God. BSB.

Who, existing in the (form) of God. BLB.

who, although He existed in the (form) of God. NASB.

Who, being in the (form) of God. KJB.

who, existing in the (form) of God. CSB.

who, existing in the (form) of God. HCSB.

In God's own (form) existed he. ISV.

who though he existed in the (form) of God. NETB.

who, existing in the (form) of God. NHEB.

He who, while he was in the (form) of God. ABIPE.

Although he was in the (form) of God. GWT.

who, although He existed in the (form) of God. NAS1977.

who, being in the (form) of God. JB2000.

Who, being in the (form) of God. KJ2000B.

Who, being in the (form) of God. AKJV.

who, existing in the (form) of God. ASV.

Who being in the (form) of God. DRB.

who, being in the (form) of God. ERV.

Who, being in the (form) of God. WBT.

who, existing in the (form) of God. WEB.

who, being in the (form) of God. YLT.

As we have seen, we can be confident that the second translations are all agreeing with each other and have added in the word (form), Greek word, (μορφῇ).

And we have also seen a good thing, that most of these translations agree with the Greek text in the oldest Bibles of the Codex Vaticanus and Codex Sinaiticus.

What does the word (form), Greek word, (μορφῇ) prove?

That single word (form), Greek word, (μορφῇ), in front of the word GOD, is teaching us a divine truth.

That single word (form), Greek word, (μορφῇ), in front of the word GOD, is NOT teaching us Jesus is GOD.
But on the contrary.

Because if St Paul was teaching us Jesus is GOD, there would be no need for St Paul to add in the word (form), Greek word, (μορφῇ), in front of the word GOD. But just simply say: Who being God.
And NOT: Who, being in the (form) of God.

So then what is St Paul teaching us by the fact he has added in the single word (form), Greek word, (μορφῇ), in front of the word GOD?

The answer is given by St Paul himself, in his other teachings like: Colossians 1:15, 2 Corinthians 4:4, Hebrews 1:3, and Colossians 2:9.

Let’s have a look?

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.
Colossians 1:15.

In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
2 Corinthians 4:4.

He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature.
Hebrews 1:3.

Did you notice what St Paul just said in the end there: and the exact imprint of his nature, Hebrews 1:3.

Now lets put Philippians 2:6, together with St Paul's other teachings.

Who, though he was in the (form) of God. ESV.
He is the image of the invisible God. Colossians 1:15
who is the image of God. 2 Corinthians 4:4.
He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature. Hebrews 1:3.

We can now clearly see that St Paul was not contradicting his teachings, or teaching anything new, by now saying Jesus is GOD.
But instead St Paul was teaching the same as he does in his other teachings.

St Paul was teaching Jesus is the image, and the exact imprint, and nature of His GOD.
Which is precisely why Paul said: Who, though he was in the (form) of God. ESV.
St Paul was talking about Jesus being the SAME NATURE as GOD.

If some one is the image of someone, then they are clearly not the same one person.

Just as we are the image of our parents and are never the same person as our parents.

The difference is Jesus is BORN DIRECTLY from His Father GOD, which gives Jesus 100% of His GOD’s NATURE.

This is why St Paul said: Who, though he was in the (form) of God. ESV.
He is the image of the invisible God. Colossians 1:15
who is the image of God. 2 Corinthians 4:4.
He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature. Hebrews 1:3.

As Jesus is the image of His GOD, He therefore can’t be that SAME GOD.

St Paul taught: For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. Romans 8:29

We become conformed to the image of Jesus, and we are never GOD.

Notice what the other better translations of Philippians 2:6 say, who add the word (nature)?

New International Version
Who, being in very (nature) God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;

Good News Translation
He always had the (nature) of God, but he did not think that by force he should try to remain equal with God.

Weymouth New Testament
Although from the beginning He had the (nature) of God He did not reckon His equality with God a treasure to be tightly grasped.

Notice the Strong's Concordance.
morphé: form, shape
Original Word: μορφή, ῆς, ἡ
Definition: form, shape, outward appearance.

Jesus has the identical character and divine qualities and NATURE as His GOD, and that’s what St Paul was teaching in Philippians 2:6.
But even though Jesus has the same NATURE as His GOD, He is NOT the same ONE TRUE GOD, which is why GOD is teaching there is no one like Him, meaning, NO TRUE GOD like Him: To whom then will you compare me, that I should be like him? says the Holy One.
26 Lift up your eyes on high and see: who created these? He who brings out their host by number, calling them all by name; by the greatness of his might and because he is strong in power,
not one is missing. Isaiah 40:25,26.

Which is why Jesus said His Father is the only true GOD, John 17:3.
Which is why St Paul always taught: yet for us there is one God, the Father.
1 Corinthians 8:6.

Which is why St John said: He (Jesus) is the only BEGOTTEN God, John 1:18.
Because Jesus is the only person who was BORN directly from His GOD, which is why St John called Jesus God in John 1:1, and John 1:18, because Jesus has the same form, shape, outward appearance, imprint and character, divine qualities and NATURE, as His GOD, which rightly makes Jesus the only BEGOTTEN God, John 1:18.

But why do all the translations of Philippians 2:6, teach Jesus Is Equal with GOD?
But he did not try to remain equal with God, says: the Contemporary English Version.

did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, English Standard Version

did not consider equality with God something to cling to, Berean Study Bible

did not consider to be equal with God something to be grasped. Berean Literal Bible

did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped. New American Standard Bible

thought it not robbery to be equal with God. King James Bible

did not consider equality with God as something to be exploited. Christian Standard Bible

St Paul was again NOT contradicting what Jesus taught that Jesus is equal with GOD, as the Trinity faith wrongly teach, but instead was teaching exactly the same as Jesus always taught, that Jesus did not count equality with God, because Jesus never claimed to be equal with His GOD, but instead always gave the glory to His Father by always declaring GOD was greater then Him and could do nothing on His own, confirming He was NOT equal with God, proving He is NOT GOD.

St Paul was saying: Jesus, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped.
In other words, all though Jesus is just like His GOD, He never, ever took any glory, but always gave His Father the glory.

We finish with another teaching by St Paul in Colossians 2:9.
And what we find again is a virtually identical teaching by St Paul saying:
For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily.
The PRECISE and EXACT meaning of what St Paul was teaching here in Colossians 2:9, is perfectly translated in the Holman Christian Standard Bible.

For the entire fullness of God's nature dwells bodily in Christ.
We again, read the same and EXACT meaning and teaching by St Paul.
For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily. Colossians 2:9.
Who, though he was in the (form) of God. ESV.
He is the image of the invisible God. Colossians 1:15
who is the image of God. 2 Corinthians 4:4.
He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature. Hebrews 1:3.

St Paul was always teaching the same divine truth.
There is NOTHING whatsoever here by St Paul contradicting his own teachings by teaching Jesus is GOD, or a Trinity, or a “tritheism” (three Gods).

But on the contrary, we easily see St Paul is teaching what he has always taught in other scriptures, that GOD is GOD alone, and GOD’s Son Jesus, has an IDENTICAL nature, and the same divine attributes as His Father GOD.

And this is why Jesus said: If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.” John 14:7.

Because: He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. Colossians 1:15
Who, though he was in the (form) of God.  Philippians 2:6. ESV.
For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell. Colossians 1:19.
GOD was pleased to dwell in His Son, because His Son is the image of Himself.
and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:17.

Conclusion.


We humans are in the (form) of our parents.
We are never the same person as our mum or dad; although we have the SAME NATURE.
And our Mum and Dad are both each unique.

As Jesus is in the (form) of His GOD. Philippians 2:6.
Jesus is NOT that same GOD, but has the SAME NATURE.
Which is why GOD is the ONLY ONE TRUE GOD, and GOD alone, which makes Him one of a kind, being truly unique, which is why He said there is no one like Him.
Just as Jesus is the only BEGOTTEN Son of His GOD, being truly unique,
Which is why St John said Jesus is (The only BEGOTTEN God), John 1:18 and called Jesus God in John 1:1.

Notice the clear CONTRADICTION by the Trinity faith?

Because they say that Jesus and the father are EQUAL in every way?


Jesus is in the visible human (form) of His GOD. But not the ONE TRUE invisible GOD, as there is only ONE TRUE invisible GOD, that’s why there is NO one LIKE GOD, who is a TRUE GOD, which is what makes GOD Almighty (The only TRUE Almighty GOD).

St Paul never, ever contradicted his own teachings regarding who GOD and Jesus are.

If there seem to be any contradictions, then Paul's teachings are being misunderstood, or taken out of context, or the verse is a false translation.

St Paul was a monotheist, and always taught GOD is the ONE TRUE GOD alone, and never more then one person.

St Paul always taught Jesus is the literal Son of His GOD, and GOD is His LITERAL FATHER.
Which would be impossible if GOD and His Son were the SAME GOD.

St Paul always taught Jesus has the identical NATURE and divine attributes as His Father GOD.

St Paul never, ever taught we must believe Jesus is GOD to be saved.

St Paul always taught Jesus as the divine Son.

St Paul always gave the glory, praises and thanks to GOD the Father through Jesus.

He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Romans 8:32

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,
nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38,39.

But why cant Trinitarians understand these simple teaching by St Paul?
Because Trinitarians are LITERALLY trapped in their own PRIDE, which has caused their hearts to grow dull.

For this people’s heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.’ Matthew 13:15.

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.
2 Timothy 4:3,4.
