The Biblical Flat Earth: A Response To The Christian Research Institute

The Christian Research Institute "exists to provide Christians worldwide with carefully researched information and well-reasoned answers that encourage them in their faith and equip them to intelligently represent it to people influenced by ideas and teachings that assault or undermine orthodox, biblical Christianity." This ministry is headed up by Dr. Hank Hanegraaff, "The Bible Answer Man." There have been two articles written against the flat earth position at this website which I would like to address here. The first article is by Dr. Hank Hanegraaff and is entitled "Does the Bible Teach That God Created a Flat Earth?"

The Biblical Flat Earth: A Response To The Principle

The Principle Movie hit theaters October 24, 2014 and certainly called into question the helio-centric cosmological model. The premise of the movie is based upon the position of geo-centrism which holds that the earth, while it is still a ball, is the center of the universe and is not spinning.

Mark Wyatt from the website spoke out against the flat earth position in an article entitled "Flat Earth is NOT the Answer." I wish to address it here.

The Biblical Flat Earth: A Response To The Institution For Creation Research

The Institute for Creation Research was "founded by Dr. Henry Morris in 1970," and "exists to conduct scientific research within the realms of origins and earth history, and then to educate the public both formally and informally through graduate and professional training programs, through conferences and seminars around the country, and through books, magazines, and media presentations."

This particular Institute addressed the issue of the flat earth in a article entitled "Is The Earth Really Round?" I wish to respond to it here.

The Biblical Flat Earth: A Response To Got Questions is a "volunteer ministry" which they claim include "Christian, Protestant, conservative, evangelical, fundamental, and non-denominational" people. They view themselves as a "para-church ministry, coming alongside the church to help people find answers to their spiritually related questions."

They have addressed the flat earth question in a article which I would like to respond to it here.

The Biblical Flat Earth: A Response To Answers In Genesis

Answers In Genesis is a Christian organization that has defended the literal interpretation of the creation account in Genesis and is headed up by Ken Ham. They have written wonderful articles defending the creation account of Genesis and pointing out the diametrically opposed positions of evolution. Even recently Ken Ham debated Bill Nye (The Science Guy) on national television over creationism vs. evolution. Answers In Genesis also vehemently supports a young earth creation according to Scripture, however. There have been a couple articles written vehemently against the Flat Earth position. I wish to respond to both articles here.

An Open Confession and Repentance Regarding My Sin

I have sinned. Even more, I have sinned online regarding my actions towards others in private messages. I have never denied my sin in acting disgracefully online. The sinful and wicked actions I committed are without question a horrible blight upon the name of Christ, the Church, and were harmful to the families and those that are my brothers and sisters in the Lord.
