Typical flat earth map on left – NASA released flat earth map on RIGHT.
From Rob skiba…
Before we begin, I must say it quite literally astounds me that Christians can’t see why this Flat Earth Controversy is important to nail down. Why does this matter? Well, just off the top of my head:1) Genesis is the foundation of ALL that we believe in the Bible to be true. If Genesis is wrong, then it ALL crumbles under a faulty foundation. Genesis says NOTHING – zip, zero, nadda – about the Earth being set in motion (orbit or rotation) around the sun. In fact, the sun doesn’t even show up until AFTER the Earth is already in place with life ALREADY in existence. Genesis says the sun, moon and stars were placed INSIDE the SAME firmament within which that Earth was formed, not outside of it. Thus, we have a completely enclosed system, within which the sun, moon and stars move, NOT the Earth. You can Yoga-Jujitsu-Wrestle Mania twist and distort the text into pretzels all you want, but it won’t change what it says. 2) IF what we are seeing concerning the Flat Enclosed Earth thesis is true, then we are all there is. We are center stage. We are the main attraction and there can be NO argument as to whether or not there is a Creator. None. His existence could not possibly become more blatantly obvious than in this model. 3) IF the Flat Enclosed Earth thesis is true, evolution goes out the window and the theory of Ancient Alien seeders is obliterated. In this regard, I believe we become painfully aware of the Great Deception… and will NOT be fooled by it. 4) IF the Flat Enclosed Earth thesis is true, then we can NOT EVER trust NASA or the government about ANYTHING and we will finally be forced to fully trust YHWH’s Word as our sole source for truth and stop trying to bend and manipulate it to fit false paradigms. 5) If heliocentricity IS false, then Scripture IS true. If Scripture IS true, and can thus be taken literally, why should we not take it just as literal when it describes the earth as fixed, not moving, set on a foundation of pillars, carved as a “circle” with edge boarders inside something with four corners, enclosed under a dome? Along with those emotions comes an all too common question: Why?? What’s the motivation to lie to us about the shape and nature of our world? To me, the motivation is quite clear: 1) First get people to doubt YHWH’s Word by destroying the very foundation of our Bible: Genesis – specifically the Creation account. 2) Set up a new paradigm, where God is out and “science” is in. Evolution removes YHWH from the equation. 3) When evolution finally runs its course and becomes utterly bankrupt, introduce the idea of “Intelligent Design” but deny the True Designer His due credit and place it rather on “Ancient Aliens.” 4) Promote the Ancient Alien theme as much as possible in all forms of media by perpetuating the concept of Earth as a tiny “blue marble” orbiting an average sun in an average galaxy among trillions of other galaxies in an ever expanding Universe. With so much “potential for life to exist” in such a vast expanse, the idea of alien scientists being our creators seems a lot more plausible over time and heavy indoctrination.
5) The stage is set for our “alien creators” to return and bestow upon us their “miracles, signs and wonders” in order to convince us all the more that all religions are false. We then put our trust in them. Finally, when Christ does return, we are all convinced that He is the enemy and our united world gathers together to make war with Him.
