A Biblical World View And One Man’s Quest For Truth
Today is July 7, 2016. After more than a year of dedicated research, all I can say is our Earth and it’s nature and place in the cosmos is not what we have been told it is by modern science, or indeed by the Church either. The Bible has been used by the Church (and its associated Creationists) to try and justify the spinning, heliocentric globe of modern science by many (including myself) over the past few hundred years, but the one thing I can now say without reservation is that I am quite certain we can no longer use it for such purposes. Indeed, that is probably the only thing I am certain about at this point. The Bible absolutely, positively, no questions asked, is a Flat Earth book from Genesis to Revelation and any academic scholar who is being truly honest with the text will agree – as those of Logos Bible Software did:
Thus, to continue to try and make the Bible agree with modern science is to be totally dishonest with the text. I can no longer do that. It says what it says. The question is what are we going to do about it?
As for me, I have finally begun to be brutally honest with the text and with myself. As a result, I have really struggled with this subject concerning the Flat Earth. I’ve built my entire life and ministry on claiming the Bible as my source for truth and regularly proclaiming that we should take it literally. The problem is, if you do take it literally, you can no longer hold onto the spinning, heliocentric globe. Yet, that’s all we’ve ever known. It’s all we’ve ever been taught. It’s all we ever see. From the moment we were capable of learning anything, we’ve been influenced by the globe model. It is literally everywhere! But how many of us have ever questioned what we were taught? As of this writing, I am 47 years old and I can tell you, prior to a little over a year ago, I never once questioned it. Yet, in the Bible, the Apostle Paul told us we are to…
1 Thessalonians 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
Hence, the creation of this website. I created it specifically to “test the globe” in order to prove – one way or another – the nature of our world, from the Scriptures and from practical observation. Does the real world actually reflect the descriptions given in the Bible? I gave it my best shot to find out. Aside from a few breaks due to health problems and significant family drama, I spent the better part of the past year doing little else but this research. In fact, for six full months,I lived and breathed it from the time I woke up, until I went to bed. It’s fair to say, I was obsessed with it (and still am) and – at least in terms of our ministry and personal relationships – it has cost us quite a bit. But I promised myself, I would give a full 6 months of my time to investigate this subject, and that I did (from April 15 – October 15, 2015). Then from October until today (7/7/16), I began to work on other projects again, but this subject just would not leave me alone. The more I resisted, the more was presented to me to investigate and – though sometimes reluctantly – that I did within the limited time I had to do so. I had hoped that I would have much more of a solid handle on all of this by now, but I confess I do not. If anything, I have far more questions than I do answers.
Yes, it is true, the globalists do have some great arguments to justify their particular cosmological worldview. But in my opinion, so do the Flat Earthers. Perhaps of the most significance, the latter have the Bible and virtually all of the ancient historical record on their side:
