That was only one example, I've got plenty more. Besides what sphere has corners? Not only that, but lets assume for the sake of argument, why would an omnipotent and omniscient, and benevolent god allow for such wording, or misinterpretations of his "perfect word". I mean you only get one shot and since the penalty for getting it wrong is hell, I'd think it would be important that he isn't cryptic.
God will not send you to hell for getting or not getting the correct translation of a word. It does not change the message of the Gospel. Not everything in His word is literal. I don’t suppose you think that Jesus is literally a “door”?...
2 ups, 5y,
As I stated before there are multiple times where the bible tells people that the Earth is flat
"It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in" Is. 40:22"
Notice the word circle, not sphere, one is 2 dimensional and one is 3, a perfect god would not and should not make the error of comparing a sphere to a circle. Also god shouldn't be cryptic, ironic, etc. If the price of me being wrong is eternal damnation, you better have some DAMN good instructions.
Don't be historically ignorant - The protestant reformation, it scared people half to death, the reason being is that protestants and catholics were spreading the idea that if you believed in the opposition you are dammed. Saying that christianity doesn't preach interpretation superiority is proven false time and time again by history.
And Daniel 7:ALL explains that the catholic church arrises out of the 4th beast-the roman empire. It is the little horn that destroys 3 of the 10 heads (the crusades). The little boastful horn with the loud bragging mouth...the antichrist
According to Genesis, it's not so much a flat disk as it a bunch of continents in the middle of an infinite primordial ocean, floating atop the waters beneath them and with a dome shaped "firmament" to support the waters above them, almost like a giant underwater snow-globe.
The millionth ancient book that describes a magic man making a magic world with magic probably got it wrong. That or four corners was like contextually different from actual corners much like how the word "age" is used to describe time periods in the bible sometimes
Ok biatches. If the earth is flat, show me the edge. If the earth is flat, show me that I can travel in one direction for an indefinite amount of time and not eventually pass over my point of origin. IF THE EARTH IS FLAT, ALLOW MORE SUBMISSIONS!
