I had never heard of the Flat Earth Society until a short while ago . I felt a fairly long response to their inquiry was needed , and that is why I am placing it on a blog .
The exponential explosion of technological " advances " of the 20th century assures me that the earth and fixed heavenly bodies are spheres . The evolution of the primitive pinhole camera resulting in satellite imagery enabled by rocketry evolving from the steam engine is undeniable . For almost 6,000 years man has pulled down his own Babylonian barns , replacing them with bigger barns , attempting to satiate the lust of his unregenerate mind , hoping , under one language again , to build a tower whose top may reach up to heaven . And , for about 6,000 years , God allowed men to be able to actually experience not only his wrath , but also his love through unfeigned faith in his Son , the Lord Jesus Christ . He enabled the Christian to discern good and evil , truth from deception . Though he takes whom he desires at his will , the devil dose not have the power to hide all of the truth from every man . What we see and hear and do each day is real , having real consequences , and is not a fantastic deception .
Man's understanding of mathematics was phenomenal thousands of years ago . That science coupled with other so-called sciences , ( murky , shallow , inept understanding of some of the bases of God's ways , which are past finding out ) , enabled Neil Armstrong to make yet another giant leap backward for mankind . What is highly esteemed among men is an abomination with God . Man deceives himself with each earth-shaking feat like that , believing that he is evolving closer to God , although he is actually cultivating the unnecessary and ungodly fruit of the work of his own hands , alienating himself further away . Those " advances " are , again , merely the fruition of man's ungodly lust of the mind . There will be no need for rockets or science or toiletries in the new heaven and earth God will create when speed will be unnecessary as time becomes totally irrelevant and a little child will lead men . There will be no need for electricity or barn renovation either .
If the earth were flat , ships would long ago have reached its limiting circumference , again making that discovery earth-shaking news , but , that never happened . The sophistication of communication and other sciences , ( for example this worldwide instant blog ) , must be real and are not hoaxes . The devil has never wielded enough power to continuously deceive everyone in the world since the beginning of time .These are my own personal Biblical reasons upon which I base my rejection of the theory that the earth is flat . But perhaps God's new earth will be flat , seeing there will be no more sea or heavenly bodies , ( for there will be no more night nor need of the sun ) , and he will make all things new . Topography then will be absolutely irrelevant .
