WOULD THEY KNOW THEIR NAME IF YOU SAW THEM IN HEAVEN



Over hundreds of years many biblical names of Hebrew and Greek origin were changed to make them more relatable names for the white European world. As an example: Abraham viewed as meaning "father of many" in Hebrew or as a contraction of Abram and הָמוֹן (hamon) meaning "many, multitude". הָמוֹן (hamon) was a perfectly good name easily pronounced but wasn't white enough for Europe. 

Let's go back a few thousand years in the Old Testament to Adam. Adam was a name to mean created from the earth by God (it is a word play on the Hebrew אֲדָמָה ('adamah) "earth"). So what was so hard about אֲדָמָה ('adamah). It was a perfectly good name easily pronounced but wasn't white enough for Europe. Let's move forward a couple thousand years to the Hebrew name Yeshua translates into Greek as Iésous they were both perfectly good names easily pronounced but wasn't white enough for Europe so they made up the name Jesus and added it to history. 

Any of these biblical characters wouldn't know their European names in heaven after centuries of name bastardization for European consensus and consumption. Yet we go along with the name changes because they are all we know. But how do you assume there is power in a recently developed name used as a replacement for an original. How does the core principles of theology teaches you or indoctrinate you enough to get around facts just to settle for a naming convention of conveniences to appease the dominate believers who are white.
