Theologians Attack Flat Earth Believers, Part 2
Continuing in our talk of theologians attacking flat earth believers. If you had seen the previous Post you heard one preacher go on at some length attacking flat earth believers, saying that talking about the flat earth takes Christians away from Jesus. He goes on to say the Apostles talked about Jesus Christ crucified. This is typical of someone who wants to avoid talking on a subject that is not comfortable for them.
You go in most any church today and they talk on the same subject or stay in the same books of the Bible. They continue to give the “milk of the word” instead of the “meat of the word” as Christ said. What these preachers or false prophets avoid is the rest of the Bible. Yes, we should talk about Jesus Christ crucified, but what about Christ resurrected? They don’t talk about that. They also don’t talk on what Christ himself said – that if you love me you will obey my commandments. What are His Commandments? His Laws, Statues and Judgements.
Christ and the Apostles often quoted from the Old Testament. You have preachers today, probably like the one you heard, never go to the Old Testament or mention very little of it. What did God say? What do we read in the Bible? That man does not live by bread alone but by EVERY WORD of God. Well, that includes the verses that talks about the sun, moon and earth! But they don’t want to talk about that because their congregation just might learn about the flat earth.
These preachers haven’t been to other flat earth websites that do talk about other verses of the Bible. True, some just talk about the verses that deal with the flat earth but the readers can continue to learn more about God by going elsewhere. Of course, these preachers have not been to the website that you are reading this on right now (ChristianFlatEarthMinistry.org ) and read the other posts on other topics of the Bible.
There is nothing wrong with having a website that is exclusively about the flat earth. If these preachers went on another site that talked on one topic, they they would not say anything – provided that they agree with it! But since they don’t agree with the flat earth, they have a bone to pick.
I guess they feel it safe to attack flat earth believers and show righteous indignation because IT’S SAFE! They don’t have to worry about being attacked by Jews, Muslims, homosexuals and Communists. After all, flat earthers are “free game,” and it makes like they are doing something. With Christianity so neutered down there is not much else for them to attack. But if they studied their Bible they would learn that Christian teaching would offend many people and groups and just about all of them would be “politically incorrect.”
This preacher who did most of the talking in the video said that it’s distracting and getting people away from Christ. I don’t see that and I’m sure you don’t see it either. From my personal experience and from what people have written to me, people have come to know the Bible better which includes knowing Christ more. So, the preacher lied right there.
When you have people who won’t even read the Bible and you talk about the flat earth, it makes them think and with some, realise that God is real and right above us. I have never said to those who read and learn about the flat earth to not read the Bible, and neither has Rob Skiba, nor others that have the Bible and the flat earth tied together.
You could have a website that is focused on biblical economics, for example, where it talks about the elimination of usury and the cancellation of debt every Sabbeth Year. And when the non-Christian learns about this, I’m sure it makes some of them want to know what else the Bible says about how we should live our life and run our society. To attack those who say that God says charging of usury is a sin, and that it gets away from God’s word would be lie. But I guess there are many preachers that are against this because they have a mortgage on their church; the preacher might have his pension in an interest-bearing bonds. So, it would be a good cover for them to say, “This is nonsense that we should make charging of interest a sin; this is distracting Christians from knowing Christ more.” I hope you see that they use this as cover, as they don’t want you to know about biblical economics.
When you get to close to the truth and even if you don’t mention the group that is making money from it, you will be attacked by that group or individuals in that group. If you have read Eustace Mullins book, Secrets of the Federal Reserve Bank, he was attacked verbally. This book came out in the early 1950s and all of a sudden Mullins was being accused of “anti-Semitism.” He didn’t know why at the time as he did not mention anything about the Jews. But he did have names in the book and many of them were Jewish. Well, you can see why they didn’t want people to know about the evils of interest/usury as certain rich and powerful Jews make money off it.
So, look to be attacked for the same reasons. IF what you are talking on affects certain right people from making money OR if it brings people out of the darkness and into the light of Christ, you will be attacked, too. Just like Christ was with the Pharisees and Sadducee.
Christ said that the world hated him and it will hate you, too. We read, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” Galatians 4:16
Yes, we are hated – even by our own kind. And we are hated because we tell the truth.
“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. John 15:18
