there you go! EVERYONE is EQUAL! whenever anything "bad" happens people say " why? what did we do to deserve this? why me? why them?"
we do not have all the answers. god allows things to go down the way he sees fit, and just because we dont get it, does not mean there is not a
plan!.........also i would like to know where you think the bible states the earth is flat and square? but just in case that you cannot locate it, i
have done the work for you! below find a article writen about your claim...read the rest at darrelldumas.com or better yet realy read your bible!
Many people have erroneously believed that the Bible teaches the earth is flat. The Medieval Catholic Church held to the notion the earth is flat and
is the center of the universe.
When Galileo presented scientific evidence to the contrary, his facts and theories were branded as "absurd in philosophy, and formally heretical,
because expressly contrary to Holy Scripture."
But nowhere does the Bible teach the flat earth theory, or that the earth is a stationary object at the center of the universe.
Galileo's theories were declared heretical in the 17th century. But, amazingly enough, six hundred years before Christ, the prophet Isaiah was
inspired by Almighty God to write and speak of the spherical shape of the planet earth!
Notice it! In Isaiah 40:22 we read of God, "It is He that sitteth upon the CIRCLE of the earth." Moffatt translates this verse more clearly: "He
sits over the ROUND EARTH." The Critical and Experimental Commentary states this expression is "applicable to the globular form of the earth." The
original Hebrew word is chuug and means a "compass, circle, or sphere."
But how did Isaiah, an ancient Hebrew prophet, know that the earth is round? Here is PROOF that the ancient Hebrews were far more knowledgeable and
scientific than they are given credit for being!
But how much did the ancient writers of the Bible really know about the earth? Did they believe the notions of their Gentile contemporaries who
believed the earth was carried about on the back of a great tortoise?
The Amazing Earth
Three amazing truths were known about the earth itself which the rest of the world did not understand for another two or three THOUSAND YEARS! Sound
incredible? It should!
First, the fact that the earth revolves around the sun once every year was not generally understood until the days of Copernicus and came to be known
as the Copernican Theory. This was in the 16th century -- just a little more than 400 years ago. He taught that the sun is the center of the solar
However, thousands of years before his time,-in the days of the patriarch Moses, the Bible uses the precise expression to indicate the revolution of
the earth around the sun once a year was known to ancient Biblical astronomers! In Exodus 34:22 we read, in the King James Version, the innocent
phrase, "And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest. and the feast of ingathering at the year's end." According
to the original Hebrew, however, this should be translated "at the REVOLUTION OF THE YEAR." The original Hebrew word is tequuphah and means "to
move in a circle," "circuit," "to go round," "orbit of the sun," as well as "revolution of time."
The Goodspeed translation has "at the turn of the year." In the days of the prophet Samuel, the expression "in revolution of days" was used to
denote the time from conception to birth of a child (I Sam. 1:20, margin). Goodspeed translates this, "when the time came around."
Notice also II Chronicles 24:23 where the "end of the year" is called, in the original Hebrew, "in the REVOLUTION of the year" (marginal
rendering). Don't these verses clearly suggest the fact that the ancient Hebrews KNEW the earth revolves around the sun, and completes one revolution
-- one turning -- each year?
But this is not all. Notice Job 38:12-14 where we read: "Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;
that it might take hold of the ends of the earth . . . IT [the earth] IS TURNED AS CLAY TO THE SEAL . . ."
What does this mean? God is talking to the ancient patriarch Job about the morning -- the rising of the sun. How is it that the sun appears to rise in
the morning? This verse contains the scientific truth -- the TRUE explanation! The earth tself turns, or "rotates" - from west to east, causing the
sun to rise in the morning, in the eastern sky, and appear to move through the sky to the western horizon, where it appears to "set."
