"So what? That does not guarantee that Jesus was considering it out of His reach to be equal to God, because that is not the only possible meaning of the comment. It can also mean that Jesus was not grasping at equality with God, because He already was equal with God, and in fact is God. Think about it, when was the last time Sysint made a conscious decision to become equal with Sysint?"
I used the translation with the word "raven" for a reason. The scripture basically means that if Jesus was claiming equality to god he was stealing or seizing something that wasn't his. What would there be to understand about being equal to yourself? To bring it up would be illogical. It was brought up to signify the difference.
"If you don't want to be associated with JW's then don't believe their doctrine." -- My point is that there are other Christian religious groups that do not believe in the Trinity. To say it's only JW's is a false statement by you. You are simply trying to provide a personal attack that doesn't sit well with me. Clean up your stage act.
"...about the truth value of the NWT when I can read it for myself and pick out the self-contradictions in it. I didn't even have to look very far, they're obvious. ..."
You will lose your premise about the accuracy of the NWT miserably. I'd take that challenge in a minute. Start a thread. The NWT has over a 7,000 instances of accuracy over most other Bible translations right out of the gate.
Go ahead, start a thread comparing whatever Bible you like over the NWT.
