The Flat Earth and Other Bible Topics
There are all kinds of flat earthers who put up websites and made videos. There are really some creative people who make videos based on just an audio that they did on a radio station, for example. They have not only video clips that go along with what they are saying but they also use CGI to explain what they are talking about. My hat is off to them. There are flat earthers who are Christian and those that are not. Those that are not christian they still use Bible verses to support their belief that the earth is flat.
The flat earthers that do talk about a Bible subject, keep to that one subject only. An example would be Rob Skiba who talks about the giants in the earth as mentioned in Genesis, but that is the only biblical topic that is discussed. Others might bring up the evolution topic. Now, all of this is fine, as learning more biblical truths is what we should do. So, I do want to acknowledge the work of other biblical flat earth scholars and what they are doing but I do have to point out a weakness about what they do.
When we become so specialised when we talk about the Bible that we ignore other topic, it does not serve Christians as it should. And when certain vital topics are ignored, it makes us still ‘babes in Christ.’ We are told of Christians who are only raised on the “milk of the word” and not the “meat of the word.” What this means is that there are many pastors that never teach of other vital Bible topics.
When you read about the prophets of old at a time when ancient Israel was in disobedience, they told the people why there is trouble in the land? Or did they teach on some finer point of Scripture? If you read of the great prophets of old like, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah and others, what did they preach? What did they exhort the people to? They told the people of their disobedience, to God’s laws. They also told them that because they did such and so is why they are being invaded or will be invaded. These people of God did not talk about ‘the lilies of the valley’ or of some other isolated topic. And they sure did not talk about something that is not Christian at all – which is what you hear a lot in the churches today.
That is why, at Christian Flat Earth Ministry, I talk on other topics from the Bible that warns people of the laws that we are breaking – God’s Laws, Statues and Judgements. This is what our nation needs in time of trouble. I think that one reason why you don’t hear about breaking God’s laws is, that it’s ‘not politically correct.’ If you have notice, that what is called ‘politically correct’ is NOT biblically correct, and for this reason, preachers stay away from this topic. This is one reason only but there are others.
In summary, there are plenty of Bible topics to speak on and one of them is why we have problems in our respective countries. This is what I try to bring to this flat earth ministry. The key is, to have a balanced ministry and if that includes talking on subjects that “offend others,” then so be it!
