In Philippians 2:6–11 Paul states that Christ Jesus was preexistent and came to earth: he “emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness.” This sounds as if Jesus was a heavenly being who only appeared to be human.

Church discipline is mentioned several times in the Bible.

As humans are corrupted by the effects of sin, prevenient grace allows persons to engage their God – given free will to choose the salvation offered by God in Jesus Christ or to reject that salvific offer. This gift comes from God’s eternal essence, and is therefore necessary.
What the Bible says about making bad decisions?

Why are the letters of Paul so important?
