How Critics Attack Flat Earth Believers
The enemy is prepared in all case scenarios in their plans lying to the people. When it comes to the flat earth, they have their plans. They know that one day people will wake up and know the truth, so they have their plans for when this happens. To better know how the enemies of Christ react, you’ve got to think like them. I know, it’s a terrible thought but just do some imagination; pretend you are in a film and your role is to play the bad guy – what will you do?
I thought about playing this role, for, in order to know what to expect, you’ve got to know what your enemy probably will do. So, what will they do when it comes to the flat earth believers?
We already know much what they do, such as:
- being ignored
- being ridiculed
- actually be censored in some way
- defamation of character, etc.
These are the common things that we have all seen and, some of us have experienced. But is there a more clever design that the enemies of truth is using; that is slipping under our collective radar? I believe there is.
We have all heard of The Flat Earth Society and it is not the bastion of truth as it was back in the 1970’s when the leader of it passed away. Now, they do advocate the flat earth and one great thing they do have on their site are the old flat earth books. To this, we give them credit. However, in some of their posts or in their interviews, they claim that ‘gravity’ is the result of the earth ‘travelling 3 metres a second upward’ that gives us gravity. This is deliberate misleading. There are other such things that they do or say that would make anyone turn away and think they are loonies. This is exactly what the government wants – to have people react this way.
More Insidious Method of Discrediting
Believe it or not, there is a more insidious method of discrediting flat earthers, or to get people ‘turned off’ by the idea that the earth is flat and stationary. Now, without mentioning names (you can figure that out for yourself), there are others that are true flat earth believers and they have put out good articles and videos. The videos are professionally made and better than I can do. But it is PART of their message that it totally wrong. That is ridiculing Christians and making blasphemy statements against Christ.
Now, think of this attack Christians and the teachings of Christ; what this would have on Christians who are learning about the flat earth for the first time. A Christian would come to a flat earth site, starts thinking about it, then he/she comes across an article where they read a blasphemy attack on Christ. What would they do? What would you do? They would get turned off, go back to their other reading and be left with the thought that all flat earthers are non-Christians and simply plain kook’s. When someone else approaches him that is a Christian and believes in the flat earth, they won’t even listen to them. I know if I came across such an attack on Christians, and it was my second or third article that I read on a flat earth site, I know that I wouldn’t have been back to read more. But, by the grace of God that was not the case. In fact, the site I was first on to learn about this was Eric Dubay’s site – a person known for having nothing to do with Christianity. But it was many articles later before I read anything negative about Christianity.
People in NASA, people who call themselves astronomers, astrophysics or what have you are part of this cover up. They are, for the most part, atheists or agnostics. So, they are quite happy to have people turned off the the flat earth news after being on a website that is suppose to enlighten them.
This technique of mixing lies with truth is effective. You can see videos of conservative Christians, good people, who came across the flat earth news, thought it was rubbish and made a short comment to their congregation.
There are a few flat earth sites, like this one, that shows the harmony of God’s word with the flat earth. It’s time that we get in the forefront of the flat earth believers. Unfortunately, those who are not Christian and mixes lies in with the truth are getting all the followers and support. You wonder how many of these follows have adopted the flat earth truth but dropped their Christian beliefs? What a trade off; what a loss? They know about the true shape of the earth but they’ve lost their Creator, and thus, living in Christ’s Kingdom.
First, and foremost, keep your belief in Christ and the Bible truths along with the flat earth truth, too. After all, the flat earth truth was first mentioned in the Holy Bible.
This is a well written article warning us real Christians who read flat stationary earth articles and watch YouTube clips (by Christians, agnostics and atheists) to exercise spiritual discernment. Even though these writers and YouTubers may have good intentions, they will skew things to their personal viewpoint and agenda. Let the Holy Spirit who lives in you combined with your knowledge of the Bible be your parrot in a cave lethal gas warning system so to speak.
I saw a YouTube clip of a supposed Christian who believed in the geocentric model but stated the earth was a stationary sphere and not flat. He also believed in gravity and that his model was geocentric because the sun and the moon revolve around the earth. His hybrid model is not only confusing, it is incorrect since gravity doesn’t exist and why would God make a sphere with a firmament covering it?
Atheist Eric Dubay whom many attribute to reviving the geocentric flat stationary earth belief spoke of a creator God in his YouTube videos but he also stated that Jesus never existed and he is a practising Buddhist. Watch Dubay’s stuff with much caution!
A real Christian who has accumulated much knowledge of God’s geocentric flat stationary earth truth through reading the over 200 Bible verses pertaining to this truth and watching and listening to credible Christian authors and speakers should use all this great knowledge to advance the Gospel of the grace of God that brings salvation. Use this geocentric truth to speak to atheists all around us. Don’t be afraid to wear a baseball cap and/or shirt with a simple “The Earth Is Flat” message. Some have asked me about flat earth in shopping malls. God/Jesus can use you to speak to the unsaved this way. This type of “missionary” work is available to all of us.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Leo. I agree. God bless you and all Readers of this blog in your search for the Truth.
Ive just recieved Pastor Dean Odles book ” Like clay under the Seal” Highly recommended. I follow on You tube the Truth is stranger than fiction…
My brief story – I began seriously researching Biblical cosmology about 8 months ago. I’m from the UK and 67 years old. It all began with an earnest and prayerful desire to rid my life all that entangles and snares and to ask for God’s wisdom, discernment, understanding and a closer walk with Him. Sometime later my journey began when a Bible teacher shared with me his thoughts on the misleading errors in the modern day Bible translations. Then he showed me true Biblical cosmology according to Genesis 1. God had my attention
God’s Word has come alive for me. It has been an exciting journey of revelation bringing with it an incredible sense of closeness to God. This journey has brought me very close to God and He has opened my eyes to the truth of His creation. I just cannot stop researching and studying His word. I’m truly amazed at how blind I was! I began researching in earnest to the origins of heliocentric cosmology and I must thank Will from “The truth is stranger than fiction “YouTube site for his dedicated research.
On Sunday the 5th of May 2019 a total stranger sat next to me in church. Her name was Jackie, a pastor’s wife, who had travelled 300 miles to visit her mother for the weekend. Nearing the end of the service our pastor encouraged us to get into small groups to pray. After we had prayed together, Jackie turned to me and said “I have a word from the Lord for you”. “FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS” ……then she was gone.
I believe this is for all who have been awoken ….” FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS” It is an encouragement to all you Biblical earth believers from the Lord
Thank you for sharing your story. I pray that others will be encouraged to ask God to show them the truth wherever it may lead.
I heard about the flat earth on YouTube, first from Eric Dubay’s video “200 Proofs Earth is Not a Spinning Ball.” My first thought was, “You have got to be kidding!” I almost didn’t watch it, for how insane and stupid must someone be to believe that. It has to be a joke. Surely, there is not a bit of evidence. I also read his “Atlantean Conspiracy” but his few anti-Christian beliefs did not faze me, for I have studied many different kinds of beliefs, and as much as possible, I keep what is true, and discard what is not.
My first foray into this area of study, was years ago when my pastor gave me the book “Geocentricity” by Gerardus D. Bouw. He believed in a fixed in space, near or at the center of the universe, round earth (this sounds like what Leo Wong mentioned). However, he did a fine expose on the origins of the Copernican revolution, and why a fixed earth was so important. For that reason alone, I could recommend that book. That was my foundation, and then Eric Dubay helped fill in many other things. Of course, I found many other sites and people, which at times I need to discard their errors and keep what is true.
I don’t necessarily agree with or believe everything here on this site, but there is always good information, and I have learned many things. I am glad it is here. Thank you for your well- researched information.
Thank you for being on this site. There is a lot of information here that I hope you get a chance to read.
Thanks for being here and writing. There is a lot more on this site for your consideration.
