The belief in a flat Earth is unscriptural

The notion that the church in the Middle Ages believed that the earth was flat is a lie from evolutionists

The Earth and the ISS.

If you read the Bible, you can clearly see that the earth is round. If the earth is not round then Jesus would have taken thoroughly mistaken when he says that it is both day and night on Earth, when he bring home all the saved to heaven.

The newspaper Day published an extensive article on the six sides of Jonathan Sverker about conspiracy theories . Among other things, he interviewed me in the article.

Sverker also took up the conspiracy theory that the earth is flat and not round. This subject I have raised repeatedly Apg29.

There are Christians who believe the earth is flat, and I have even received both emails and letters hemsänt me where you've been trying to get me to believe in a flat earth.

But do you believe in a flat earth, based on the Bible must dislodge Bible verse, giving them a different interpretation and deny what the Bible really says.

Jesus speaks of a round earth

If you read the Bible, you can clearly see that the earth is round. If the earth is not round then Jesus would have taken thoroughly mistaken when he says that it is both day and night on Earth, when he bring home all the saved to heaven.

If on that day is up on the roof and have their belongings in the house, let him not go down and pick them up. Similarly, the person who is in the field not turn back home. [...] I say to you: The night will be two men in one bed. The one shall be taken and the other left.

Luke 17: 31,34

When Jesus bring home the believers to heaven, there is day and night on Earth. And it can only do if the earth is round. On one side of the earth is the day while the other side is the night.

Reduces God

If you believe that the earth is flat, then reduce to God. Flat soils do not believe that the stars and the space available.

They therefore deny that God is so powerful and so great that he was able to create space and galaxies. But my Bible and God is so great that he has created all this!

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

1 Gen. 1: 1

The science disproves the theory

Those who believe that the earth is flat dismisses photos of the planet from space as a proof that the earth is round. But even without the images, there is much evidence that the earth is essentially spherical ..

Eclipses have circular shadow

During a lunar eclipse casts its shadow land on the moon, because the earth is between the sun and the moon. This is impossible with a flat earth.

In addition, the Earth's shadow on the moon clearly circular, suggesting that the Earth is round. The only form that always casts a circular shadow whatever angle is a sphere.

Antarctica is a continent

Flat soils mean that Antarctica is not without it's a high wall of ice. But the facts indicate that Antarctica is a continent. Scientists have repeatedly sailed around Antarctica.

Lots of pictures have been taken of the continent from the aircraft. In addition, several expeditions to the mainland proved that Antarctica is not a high wall of ice.

Earth blocks the stars

The same stars are not visible from all parts of the earth. It is a phenomenon that can only be explained by the earth is round. Earth's curvature means that we can not see some parts of the sky.

If the earth is a flat disk, the same stars seen wherever the sky was considered.

Now we have looked at some scientific arguments that reveals clearly that the earth is round. Let's go back to the Bible to see what it has to say about the subject.

First we look at the interesting seasons, revealing unquestionable that the earth is round.

The seasons proves a round earth

1 Genesis 8:22 While the earth remains to be sowing and harvest, and cold and heat, summer and winter , day and night shall not cease. "

The Bible speaks of the seasons never end as long as the earth remains. The seasons discloses a round earth.

Earth spins not only on its axis like a top. It also revolves around the sun in a big circle called the orbit. Earth's orbit around the Sun, and the Earth's axis tilt, means that we have four seasons. Wintertime leaning Sweden and northern hemisphere away from the sun.

The reason for the change of seasons is the Earth's tilt. While the earth moves around the sun, it rotates also around its own axis, which is tilted about 23.5 degrees. Because of the slope turns the northern and southern hemispheres to be pointed at the sun in the Earth's revolution around the sun. This is what we experience as the seasons.

When the Earth is in the part of its orbit when the northern hemisphere facing the sun, we get more sunshine during the day. The extra solar energy heats the earth and air - it will be spring and summer.

Half a year later, the Earth has been on the other side of the sun, and then the southern hemisphere that faces directly into the sun, while the northern hemisphere is in shadow. Therefore, the spring and summer, for example, Australia and South America, while we have fall and winter in our part of the world.

Creation shows a round earth

1 Genesis 1:14 God said, "Let the sky light to divide the day from the night!" They will be signs to mark seasons and days and years , 15 and they shall be lights in the firmament which shines upon the earth. "And it was so.

16 God made two great lights, the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night , also the stars. 17 He set them in the firmament to give light upon the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.

We see this in the text that God has set signs to mark seasons and days and years. And there is the sun and the moon. The different times, such as the seasons reveals clearly that the bee has a round earth! And it is the Bible that teaches us this!

If we take out the flat believers' arguments so does not the Bible. They say that the sun and moon are equal. The moon would be as big as the sun is not true because in 1 Exodus 1:16 says:

God made two great lights, the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night, also the stars.

Here it is clear that the sun is bigger than the moon! To answer that reflects reality: Read the Bible and believe in it!

Isaiah speaks of a round earth

Do you not understand, do you not? Has not it been said you from the beginning, you have not known it since the earth's foundation? He is enthroned above the earth round , those who live on it are like ants. He spreads out the heavens as a canvas, ranging up like a tent to live in. - Isaiah 40: 21-22

The text is about God and not a scientific treatise, but the earth is mentioned as round (sphere, sphere) as casually - as if it is a matter of course that does not need explained.

Earth hanging in space

In the book of Job, we can also read that the Earth hanging in space - in the same way as the Sun and the Moon.

He stretches out the heavens to the north over the empty place, he hangs the earth upon nothing . - Job 26: 7

Note that this is not the Earth is on the pillars. Earth hanging in any space!

arched horizon

At sea, you could even see the horizon is curved, just like it says in the book of Job, which is one of the Bible's most ancient books:

An arched horizon , he sat across the waters, where light bordering the darkness. - Job 26:10

Solar eclipse

The Earth is round has ensured at all times. For example, it has been possible to see it at lunar eclipses (the shadow that Earth casts on the Moon), but also in solförmörkrlse.

When Jesus hung nailed to the execution implement the cross of Calvary became a major solar eclipse. Through the cross of Jesus proves a round earth.

Mark 15:33 the sixth hour [12.00] came over all the land darkness that lasted until the ninth hour [15.00].

When Jesus hung on the cross covered the whole land of darkness for three hours. This prophesied Amos on. Read the incredible prophecy:

Amos 8: 9-10 It shall happen in that day, saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon and put the country in the dark in broad daylight . 10 I will turn your feasts into mourning and all your songs into lamentation. I will clothe everyone's hips with sackcloth and make every head bald. I will let it be as the mourning for an only son and the end of a bitter day.

Even the Roman historian Phlegon mentions a large solar eclipse at the time of Jesus' crucifixion. Origen of Alexandria (182-254 AD) in Against Celsus (. Book II, Chapter XIV) wrote that Phlegon, in his "Chronicles", mentions Jesus:

"Now Phlegon, in the thirteenth or fourteenth book, I think, for his chronicles, not only to write, Jesus the knowledge of future events (also fall into confusion about some things that refer to Peter, as if they refer to Jesus), but also testified that the results corresponded to his predictions. "

He referred to a description of Phlegon of an eclipse along with earthquakes during the reign of Tiberius (probably to 29 AD): it was "a major solar eclipse," and:

"It became night in the sixth hour of the day [ie 12.00] so that the stars also appeared in the sky. There was a great earthquake in Bithynia, and many things overturned in Nicaea. ".

Solar Eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, and these are in a straight line, the sun completely or partially obscured from the viewer earth.

The notion that the church in the Middle Ages believed that the earth was flat is a lie from evolutionists

It is still written books claiming that medieval people believed that the earth is flat.

It is easily proved that at least they learned during the Middle Ages knew that the earth was round.

The Swedish history professor Dick Harrison says:

The truth is that no one mistrusted Columbus and that almost no medieval man thought the earth was flat. There were since ancient times a deep and widespread belief throughout the formed Europe, which was that the earth was spherical. Almost all Western European writers with general geographical themes in his repertoire [some of them listed] were all in agreement that the earth was round.


Most modern historians believe that it is just a myth that the knowledge of the Earth's shape was forgotten during the Middle Ages and that this is an example of a factoid.

A factoid is beliefs that are held as true, but which in fact is incorrect.

Preached a round earth

The sermons in the Middle Ages was held contrary to what many believe not in Latin but in the vernacular. And in the sermons were treated creation scheme, including the Earth's spherical shape.

The Norwegian Konungaspegeln from the 1200s is a grassroots publication that mentions the earth's shape and educational explains to the reader that he should think of the earth as an apple hanging freely. If you then for a light around the apple, as explained day and night, and climatic differences between the Nordic countries and the countries around the equator.

Petrus de Dacia, commonly referred as Sweden's first author, was a Dominican monk from Gotland. In his writings are the earth ball shape obvious.

Lying from evolutionists

During the mid and late 1800s plummeted a scientific battle between Darwinists and theologians about the theory of evolution. The myth of the flat earth became an argument against the church and was used to show that the Church had also been wrong on this issue.

The lie had spread and began to be perceived as truth.

Misunderstood Bible verse

Matthew 4: 8 Then the devil took him up into an exceeding high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said: "All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me."

Logically, we understand that the devil is not literally could take Jesus up on a high mountain to see all the kingdoms because such high mountains are. We need to understand the text spiritually. The devil came with various temptations of Jesus' mind.

When the Bible says that the earth would have corners, for example, in Job 38:13, it is imagery. We see this clearly if we read the verse in context and not just making an isolated quote. Rule number one is to always read things in context.

Job 38: 9-18Who put the sea with doors when it broke forth from the womb, 9 when I gave the clouds to the dressing in and let the darkness become its infancy, 10 when I decided then and set bars and doors for it, 11 saying, " here you will come, but no further, this should be your proud waves be stayed '? 12 Have you since your days began, commanded a day to dawn and designated dawn a place 13 where it could make the Earth in its corners, so that the wicked might be shaken out of it? 14 Then change the earth form the clay under the seal, and increasingly emerging as the new costume. 15 When the wicked their light, and the arm is lifted to break. 16 Have you come down to the ocean's resources and walked the deep bottom? 17 Have the gates of death been revealed to you, you have seen the shadow of death ports? 18 Have you been able to see beyond the earth's expanses? Let me know,

Another verse that is also usually explained erroneously that the earth is flat and has four corners are Revelation 7: 1st

Rev 7: 1 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners, holding the four winds of the earth so that no wind would blow on earth or sea or against any tree.

But this is simply a description of the earth's four quarters. North, South, East and West. Why read anything that is not in the text? It says nothing, for example, that the earth would be flat this.

Moreover, we must not forget Rev 7: 1 describes a vision - a vision - which means it does not have to literally look like because it has a score and want to illustrate - evident truth.

How often we do not say that "the sun rises" when we know that the sun can not "go" because it has no legs! Even SMHI speaks of "Sunrise and sunset" despite of some ought to know that it is the earth that revolves around the sun!

The English side AnswersInGenesis explains the great variety of Scripture that is often misunderstood that the earth would be flat.

In this context I must also mention King Nebuchadnezzar's dream vision of Daniel chapter four:

Dan 4: 7-8 This was the vision that I had on my bed: I saw in my vision a tree in the midst of the earth, and it was very loud. 8 The tree was great and strong, and so high that it reached to the sky and appeared to end of the earth.

This is usually also included as an argument that the Bible speaks of a flat earth because the tree "appeared to end of the earth". But this is again a sight - also a dream - and dreams illuminate not always the way it looks in reality. And secondly, it is an imagery that also Daniel had interpreter, as we see later in this chapter! Rule number one: Always read everything in context!

Does the earth on pillars?

Before we go further into this interesting topic, I must mention anything about whether the world would stand on pillars, which you see in the picture at the top. Is this really the Bible?

Job 38: 4-7 Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation? Answer, if you have that understanding. 5 Who decided her dimensions, you know! And who hath stretched the line upon it? 6 Where did her mainstay of their strongholds? Who put her cornerstone, 7 while the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Again, this imagery. It speaks of "the morning stars sang together," Who has seen a star sing? There is talk of "measuring line" and "the cornerstone". These are images that speak of God's greatness and sovereign creative power. So: Job not describe the earth would stand on pillars image at the top of this article illustrates.

What is Heaven's stars?

Up. 6:13 stars of the heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its unripe figs when shaken.

We know that the stars are suns. If the stars fall on the earth, the earth would be destroyed immediately. In other words, it can not be the stars that we think them as the Bible describes. What is it then?

We see in the Bible that when Satan was cast out of heaven, he took a third of the stars of heaven with him in his fall. Stars in this context are the angels. Satan had with him a third of the angels of heaven in his case.

When the time is that the stars of the sky fell to the earth as it was the angels of heaven that fell down to earth.

This teaches us that we should understand certain scriptures then we must let the text explain the text and read it in context. Otherwise we get error that also the flat believers have done when they have been printed Bible verses and details out of context.
