The Flat Earth Heresy
By David J. Stewart | April 2018 | Updated November 2019
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.

Dr. Texe Marrs and Jerry Barrett Promote Satanic Flat Earth Heresy
Pastor Texe Marrs (1944-2019) is a brilliant man in my opinion, but it is obvious to me that the folks at Power of Prophecy are money-hungry as well. There is no way that anyone as intelligent as Texe could embrace the insanity of a FLAT EARTH! I can only logically conclude that the folks at 'Power of Prophecy' only want the money.
It is also possible that even though Texe may not believe in a FLAT EARTH, he gives others with whom he disagrees a chance to promote what they believe to be true, and then allows YOU, THE AUDIENCE, to form your own conclusions. Albeit, that is as wicked as Hell, intentionally promoting obvious heresy to sell a book to make a buck! I have never heard Texe or Jerry say that they disagree with a FLAT EARTH claim.
Regardless, I must expose Texe Marrs and Jerry Barrett as heretics in this matter, for promoting a FLAT EARTH heresy! Kindly, you are a darn fool dear reader if you believe that our earth is flat instead of a sphere. What saith the Scripture? 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.” Even the Holy Bible proclaims that the earth is a CIRCLE!!!
In a recent episode of Power of Prophecy from November of 2019, Jerry Barrett interviewed author Edward Hendrie. Here is the introductory information provided at Power of Prophecy about this particular episode...
Sphere of Influence—Does God’s Word Confirm the Earth is Flat?
November 1, 2019
Jerry Barrett is pleased to welcome Edward Hendrie, author of the new book The Sphere of Influence, to the program. What began as an innocuous email discussion with his father has led Mr. Hendrie into authoring two extensive tomes exposing the heretical views of heliocentrism versus the bible-based model of geocentrism. Through mathematical calculations and geometric equations, the author disproves the curvature of the earth. Thanks to the sharing capability of the Internet and the ability of the populace to purchase never before available instruments, more information is becoming available to confirm this premise. Moreover, Mr. Hendrie uses scripture to prove the validity of his claim that the earth is flat.
LISTEN TO 'POWER OF PROPHECY' EPISODE #4419: SPHERE OF INFLUENCE (MP3)
If you want to hear the craziest thing you've ever heard, listen to Jerry Barrett at 30 minutes into the MP3 presentation, where he connects the Gospel to a FLAT EARTH! You couldn't make this stuff up! (actually they did...lol). What blatant heresy!!!
According to Ed Hendrie, if you reject a FLAT EARTH you are rejecting the Gospel! Edward Hendrie is a FALSE PROPHET, a nut in my humble opinion, who calls the teaching of a spherical earth: “THE GREATEST LIE IN HISTORY!” In the preceding Power of Prophecy episode (#4419), Hendrie says that a round earth teaching is used by Satan to blind people from the existence of God. Oh boy! The depth of their woeful ignorance is disturbing. Really, it is creepy that anyone could be so naive as to actually believe that the earth is FLAT in these modern times! There are people who still believe that men never walked on the moon. THEY DID! It is shocking that Hendrie claims preachers who deny his FLAT EARTH heresy are corrupting the Gospel, claiming that they don't accept the whole of God's Word. Honestly, it is frightening that anybody could actually buy into these Satanic lies! Dear reader, the earth is a sphere!
False Knowledge is a Dangerous Thing!
I couldn't believe that someone actually made the following idiotic video, in which a man contends that the earth's sun couldn't possibly be 93,000,000 miles away. Uh, yeah, it is! 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)...
FLAT EARTH - THE SUN IS 93,000,000 MILES AWAY?!? NO WAY
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. Science proves that 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. Having said that, now consider the preceding video, by an ignorant man who argues that the sun couldn't possible be 93,000,000 miles away, because our sun looks like a spotlight in the sky. His reasoning is that if the sun were really 93,000,000 miles away, its rays would not be so intense in the earth's sky, like a bright spotlight. 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 is 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!
