Do you know that some people want the name of the moon changed? This is news I found today (Feb. 27) on the internet. Some people claim that the name of the moon is so common that they want a name change; changed to something ‘cool’ like the name of the moons of other planets. It goes on to say that calling the moon, moon, is like have the name of your dog, dog, or a person, person.
Now, these people are not Christian or they don’t know their Bible. First, who created everything? God did. So, he gets to name what we live on today. He called it Earth. The great light, he called, the Sun, and what we see at night that shines light, is called the Moon.
But have you noticed that all the other planets, including many stars have names that come from pagan religions? All the ‘planets in our solar system’ have names of Roman deities. Since much of society have a non-Christian slant or are controlled by non-Christians, it only makes sense that these modern-day pagans would want to change the name of the moon. What is next?
I would not be surprised that these very same people will want to change the name of the Sun. After all, this is a ‘common’ name, too; all stars are really suns, so let’s call it something ‘cool’!
God name the sun, the Sun; the same with our ‘planet’ he called Earth. After all, Adam was not around to name things – which he did in the Garden. As pagan thinking goes, why not change the names of what God called things?
I did a search in the Bible (KJV) to find the verses that have the word ‘moon’ in it and there are over 50 verses. Some of them are below…
Gen_37:9 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
Deu_4:19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.
Deu_17:3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;
Deu_33:14 And for the precious fruits brought forth by the sun, and for the precious things put forth by the moon,
Jos_10:12 Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.
Jos_10:13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.
In Genesis God called the moon ‘the lesser light’ but you can be sure that the name came from him.
(Gen 1:16) And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
(Gen 1:17) And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
(Gen 1:18) And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
(Gen 1:19) And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
I don’t know why centuries ago, when Christianity was just starting, that other names were not given to the planets in stead of these stupid pagan deity names. Of course, as flat earthers, we know that there is no ‘solar system’ as such, and that there are no planets, as such, either. What we call planets are nothing more than lights but they move more and they appear closer to the earth.
If you notice in the book of Joshua, in the verses above, we read that the Moon did not move and the Sun did not move during the great battle that took place back then. This plainly tells us that it is the moon and sun that does the moving and not the Earth. And, by implication, that they have to be relatively close to the Earth and that the they are much smaller in size than what they are.
Let’s keep calling the Earth, Sun and Moon by their proper names and not something else.
