The Flat Earth Heresy
By David J. Stewart | April 2018
Isaiah 40:22, “It is he that
sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as
grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in.”
I cannot believe I am even writing this article, but as hard as it is to imagine, there are still people today who literally believe that the earth is flat. Folks, the earth is NOT flat! It is a circle, not a perfect circle, but it looks like a circle from outer space. The earth is actually a bit oblong...
Since the Earth is flattened at the poles and bulges at the equator, geodesy represents the shape of the Earth with an oblate spheroid. The oblate spheroid, or oblate ellipsoid, is an ellipsoid of revolution obtained by rotating an ellipse about its shorter axis.
American Scientific also provides information about the earth's shape...
Here is a satellite photo of the earth from NASA. Truly, a picture is worth 1,000 words...
THE EARTH IS A SPHERE, just like the moon!!!
I've heard some well-meaning but ignorant preachers twist Revelation 1:7 where it says “every eye shall see him,” which, they say, means the earth must be flat for the whole world to see Christ when He returns. Folks, let's read the whole verse from Revelation 1:7, “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.” How can all the people involved in “piercing” Jesus, that is, crucifying Him, see Him from Hell? Those were all unsaved people who pierced Jesus to the cross. Clearly, it is possible in ways that only God can understand. It is gross theological incompetence to attempt to use Revelation 1:7 to teach that the earth is flat, or dome shaped.
Kindly, for this very reason I had to stop supporting and promoting “The Common Man's Bible,” which can literally now be called “The Idiot's Bible,” because Brother Hoffman teaches in it that the earth is flat, which is insanity...
David Hoffman Teaches A Flat Earth In His Common Man's Reference Bible
Perhaps you say, “Does it really hurt if a sincere preacher thinks the earth is flat?” Are you kidding me? The answer is a resounding, yes, yes, yes, it is very detrimental and harmful to the cause of Christ. There are a lot of unsaved people, who upon learning that a man ignorantly teaches the earth is flat, will immediately leave (and I don't blame them) from the presence of that fool.
Even the Holy Bible tells us to go from the presence of a fool. Proverbs 14:7, “Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.” I cannot think of anything more foolish, and lacking of KNOWLEDGE, than a man who denies that the earth is a sphere. Pastor David Hoffman likes to quote from the Proverbs in an attempt to bolster up his strawman argument that the earth is really flat. Mr. Hoffman even goes as far as to call people who believe the truth about the earth being a circle, “globetards.” No, Brother Hoffman is the retard!
There are hundreds of photos on the internet showing that the earth is a sphere.
The fact that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west each day, evidences that the earth is a sphere that is spinning. The sun is 93,000,000 miles away from the earth. It takes sunlight 8 minutes to reach the earth. If the sun exploded, we wouldn't know it for 8 minutes. The earth rotates around the sun once every 365.25 days.
Honestly folks, I feel sorry for some people, seeing how dumb they are (this guy reminds me of Dr. John MacArthur and his retarded denial of Jesus' blood on the Mercy Seat in Heaven in plain defiance of Hebrews 9:12)...
The idiot in the preceding video fails to understand that it's the earth's atmosphere that refracts the sun's light, which gives the sky it's blue color, and wonderful seven rainbow colors. That why when we gaze up at stars at night, we only sees bright dots in the heavens. Those stars are too far away. God knew what He has doing when He made the universe. What a brilliant Creator!!!
May I say, I don't call people an “idiot” for being ignorant, bless their heart; but rather, I call a person an idiot when they speak boldly with confidence in their ignorance. If you don't know what you're talking about, keep your mouth shut; and if you do open your mouth, you had better be able to backup what you're talking about. The guy in the preceding video makes about as much sense as Billy Graham John MacArthur and Ray Comfort on God's plan of salvation for man.
Let me say again, unequivocally, that the earth is a spherical in shape. Don't let anybody tell you different!
