One of a number of proofs that the Bible is the Word of God is the fact that no other book in the world can be translated into so many different languages, and lose so little of its native beauty and force. This fact indicates that it was written for all the Israelite nations. So we may equally say tht with regard to the truth of the world being a vast plane, and not a globe, we have amongst numerous other proofs the fact that a ship sailing on every known sea the mariner’s compass is not only an essential help, but it is a positive necessity. If the earth was not flat, what use would the compass be? If a vessel was, say 50° S. the compass could not possibly point to the North Pole. And where would it point of the ship were on the line? Let your readers try it on a pasteboard globe and see for themselves.
