HOW MODERN CHRISTIANITY HAS COLLECTIVELY COME TO AGREE with an academic Scientism that claims it knows better than God, I cannot say. But this is the soggy marsh by which we’ve fooled ourselves into building God’s kingdom upon, having conceded to the itching ears and salivating mouths of godless philosophers that ‘not all of the Holy Scriptures are so firm a foundation as we once thought,’ and just look around—western civilization is clearly no better for it. If the theology of Flat Earth is inseparable from the Bible’s many other foundational doctrines, it’s because God Himself spoke of it—which makes it of equal importance, if not greater still.
“Who is this,” asks God of Job, “who darkeneth my counsel by words without knowledge? Brace yourself like a man.”
If the modern Christian so eagerly joins with the apostasy of heathens and mocks the theology of Flat Earth, it’s likely because they themselves cannot reckon, or even live with themselves having known, that the serpent of old has been so relentlessly crafty, even beyond that bitter bite in Eden, as to deceive us all on such a global scale, a fools errand such as this. While the unbelieving world squints their eyes into the sun seeking out the imaginary curve, the shades have been lifted from the eyes of those who’ve responded in all humility to the Holy Ghosts beckoning call. The Earth truly is flat. A repentance I myself have mourned. I’ve even wept in solitary moments for my own involvement with the proud delusion of our age. But there is a joy to my salvation, a greater joy still in falling to my knees before God Almighty in submission to His every revelation and knowing. Understand there’s no ego here—no, “I told you so.” Turn to the Bible, stand upon it as your sure footing, and you’ll be welcomed with open arms.
The Bible’s unbending narrative of the miraculous, which drips from its deliciously juicy pages upon our palms and fingertips with each opening, cannot be selectively chosen to suit our own worldview. Think of the walls of Jericho crumbling down as a mere coincidence “when the priests blew with the trumpets and the people shouted with a great shout.” Think of Moses only pretending to plague Egypt, of using medical trickery to heal some in the wilderness while convincing them it was a bronze snake on a pole, of Joshua having only pretended to converse war plans with the Captain of the Lord’s host, or of Elisha’s bones reviving the dead. Think of Balaam’s donkey, Sampson’s strength, Aaron’s rod, Gideon’s fleece, Daniel’s comfort among famished lions, or Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego making themselves fire-proof by a scientific process of which the particulars are not now recoverable. And then think of Christ having tricked the people into feeding “five thousand men, besides women and children,” having only pretended to raise the dead, to heal the sick, to cast out devils, and Himself to die and rise again. What is the use in reading on? And if we can’t put our faith in the beginning, as the Holy Ghost declares it was so, then how can we be confident of His end declaration?
“Who art thou,’’ asks God of His chosen nation, by His prophet Isaiah; “Who art thou that forgettest the Lord thy Maker, that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth?”
If we attempt to explain away the miraculous while leaving the historic, we might as well try to ram the gates of heaven down. Actually, from where I’m standing, that is exactly what NASA is doing—a clear retelling of Babel’s damnable tower for the end days—and to no avail. Remove the first foundation and nearly the whole of the remainder collapses down with it. The miraculous intervention of heaven above bleeding into, and furthermore giving definition to (what would otherwise prove the drudgery of human existence), is—as the Bible is concerned—not only as true a history as any other, but far superior.
Flat Earth is the greater telling of this fabricated Late Great ‘Planet’ Earth.
And yet it is the modern Copernican Christians who demand that we today, in their self-declared “renaissance of man,” are the wise ones while they, the recipients of God’s revelation, were the superstitious ignoramuses. What perversity, I say, that the modern bearer of “faith” prefers the morals of dead heathens and pompous philosophers before the inimitable exemplars of a living Bible.
The moral views regarding the universe always have been and will forevermore continue to be, if we simply brace ourselves like men, put forward by God Almighty. The theology of Flat Earth is indispensable to correct views of the Lord Himself, and with good reason. Whenever human souls depart from God’s unbending principle, as is evident from this “renaissance of man,” they invariably end by departing from Him—eternally.
