Flat Earth, Globe Earth?

It wasn’t until six months ago that I discovered that there is a fast-growing movement of ‘Flat Earthers’. There is a another view that says the earth is ‘concave’! So, we now have the body of Christ arguing over flat earth, globe earth and concave earth?

My ‘take’ on it? Personally, I feel the earth is a sphere. As I’ve looked through my own telescope in years past or used a Nikon 900, I’ve observed that every other celestial body in our solar system is spherical, but people believe the earth is flat? But in the eternal scheme of things, does it matter?

One thing I felt the Lord urging me to bring up in this whole debate amongst born again believers is this: The secular world watches as the body of Christ devours one another with angry insults over this. The shape of the earth has absolutely NO bearing on the gospel. Jesus sent us forth to expose the deeds of darkness and spread the Gospel, Ephesians 5:11.

Paul spoke to the church about devouring one another up over debatable issues, such as eating meat or vegetables, worshipping on one day versus another and so on. The unbelieving world views this and does not see Christ in the church body!

I’ve even seen some Christians accuse other brothers and sisters of not being saved if they are ‘globe earthers’ or ‘flat earthers’. Since when did the shape of the earth have anything to do with Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross for our sins?

What is the world witnessing in us? Arguments over the shape of the earth or us joining together to expose evil (Ephesians 5:11) and share the Gospel?

  1. AWESOME!!
    (Angela, are you trolling? LOL!)
    Isn’t it a ridiculous topic?
    I’m ashamed to say it, but I actually saw a billboard recently promoting a big conference they had in Edmonton, Alberta in February 2018.

    I took a picture and will send it to you.

    Yes, God created humans with brains… People, to quote a famous fictional starship captain…. “Engage… make it so!”

    I highly recommend taking a telescope or even binoculars, and enjoy looking at the moon, or planets over the course of days or weeks and you’ll see regular changes that can only be explained if these creations of God are spherical. If you observe the planet Jupiter you’ll notice 4 of it’s moons, (the tiny specks you’ll see around it through a telescope) move across in front of it, then disappear behind it, reappear, cross in front of it again, and repeat the cycle over days and weeks. This can only be explained if they are travelling in a circle, an orbit, around a spherical object.

    I’ll do a blog soon with links to websites where high school classes send balloons up taking high altitude photos showing the curvature of the earth…. it’s become a bit of a popular hobby…. send your phone up with a helium balloon and its video camera recording everything, track it with google gps mapping, when the balloon reaches max altitude it pops, the phone parachutes down, you retrieve it, and look at your video. If you get high enough, you’ll see the curvature of the earth!

    I think a lot of people create or join flat-earth societies just to troll people, like a debate club and get their 15 minutes of fame, while there’s a few who actually believe it, probably because they haven’t put a lot of thought into it.

    God said, “…for lack of knowledge, my people perish.” We may spiritually know Jesus ands be saved, but we also need to intentionally be physically and intellectually aware and learning as well. “Study to show yourself approved, a workman who needs not be ashamed”
    Ask God for wisdom!
