QUESTION: John 1:12; “To those who receive Him, to them he gave the power to become sons of God, even to those that believe on His name.”
ANSWER: Yes, we hear many of all races received HIM. To begin with this is a fictitious translation and error at the time of the translation. Secondly it is a thoroughly impossible situation, and thirdly all races did not receive Him so what is being said here in this first chapter of John? The opening of the Book of John talks about Him being the Light which came into the world. Then “He came unto his own and his own received him not. Then as many as received Him He gave the power to become sons of God.” This is what the Episcopalians translated this to be, and what the King James and Douay versions had established under phoney church theology because they were trying to twist church theology to suit themselves, and the Jewish Priests at Rome had tried to make it a doctrine to embrace all people, all races, and everybody else in the structure of Christianity.
Let’s then go back to St. John 1:12 and take this passage found here: “Therefore (talking about Christ) this was the light that lighted every man (Adamite).” Now; this world was made by Him, but it knew Him not, thus; “He came into the world and the world (order) knew Him not.” The world was made by Him but the world (order) knew Him not. Thus He came unto His own and His own received Him not. The translation should have been: “He came to the land of His inheritance and the rulers (or occupiers) received Him not.”
