    Question my dear brother Nathan.

    How important do you believe it is that we ever arrive at an agreement about the natural reality of the shape of the earth God created, and it’s physical relation to the sun, moon and stars and their movement?

    Love you brother!

    It's not a salvation issue so it's not important to me. If you want to believe that, then so be it. So long as we believe in Jesus as he claimed to be, then we have no division as far as I'm concerned.

    My only worry is that for those outside of the faith trying to learn about Jesus that they might stumble if they think that we believe something so outside of mainstream science. Believing that Jesus is real (real, as in, who he says he is) is already a big enough hurdle. If they think we have "wacky" ideas about easily proven things (such as the shape of the earth) they might be inclined to think our beliefs about Christ are just as "wacky." I side with St. Augustine on this.

    Thank you for your reply, dear brother!

    Your comments reminded me of some of Light's earlier posts on this thread. I hear you. As for causing anyone to stumble with my questioning and research into the realities of Creation, it's something I am increasingly sensitive to. At the core of my words and actions, there must be true love. Otherwise, all is in vain, regardless of the topic of conversation.

    I continue to appreciate you and the manner in which you have engaged with me on this thread.

    It also encouraged me greatly to receive your private message! Bless you for that, dear brother!

    I suspect this conversation is not over yet, but for now, I must get back to work....

    Think about this for a moment: Suppose you are in a car traveling down the road. How can you tell how fast you are going? The speedometer tells you how fast your wheels are turning, but you could be standing dead still, spinning your wheels trying to get off a patch of ice, so let's remove the speedometer from the car. As you go faster, your car may vibrate more because it's working hard, but these vibrations only tell you the car is working hard, not what velocity you are moving at. So get a good car and some cushions to remove the vibrations you feel. Then get some good earplugs so any misleading sounds won't distract you. And paint your car windows black so that the motion of objects relative to you don't throw you off. Remember that when it comes to the rotation of the Earth, everything around you is moving at the same speed - you, the trees, the houses, your pet dog, everything. Okay, now, how fast are you going? You have no way to tell. You don't feel like you're moving. You feel just as you would if you were standing still! Human beings have no ability to tell absolute motion.

    So, have we all watched Behind the Curve yet?

    I have! I'm curious what everyone thinks.
