Christ also cannot mediate between God and men if He Himself is not both God and man.
5Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6who, being in the form of God,did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7but made Himself of no reputation,taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.8And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death,even the death of the cross.(NKJV)Our understanding of Philippians 2:5-8 must be in line with the over-all teaching of the Apostle Paul on the humanity of Christ.If Paul regarded Jesus as a man in one place, he cannot deny it in another. But definitely Paul would not contradict himself when he wrote the Philippians passage.These verses clearly state that our Lord Jesus only assumed the form of man. Therefore, to teach that our Lord Jesus Christ is a man is a big mistake.He is not a man by nature; He only assumed the form of a man. [Eliseo Soriano, “How the ‘Iglesia ni Cristo’ made our Lord Jesus Christ a Man.”]Why did John said [sic] that our Lord Jesus was a man?It is because, that incident happened at the time our Lord Jesus was assuming the form of a human being. That only means he assumed the fact that Christ is human.
The Bible said, He was made in the likeness of men. The parallelism that Jesus is the second Adam would be pointless if he is not really a man.
For if Jesus is not human, then it follows that Adam is also not human.
and that millions already converted to their faith through their broadcast not only nationwide but even worldwide through their own cable TV channel, a hundred radio stations and the internet.
In view of these claims, we need to discern whether Soriano is of God or not.
One way of doing that is to assess his teaching that Christ is not fully man or human.
This paper critiques his interpretation of Philippians 2:5-8, one of his main passages to prove his doctrine.
