Blogs/Flat Earth: What does the Bible really say?

/Flat Earth/23 Mins Read

This is a continuation of my previous post Flat Earth: Why it matters. If you haven't read it, I would advise you do so first before continuing.

I am a Christian, born again, and I believe in our Lord Jesus Christ. One of the things that Christianity demands is the supreme authority of the Bible. The Word is God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16) and therefore is supreme. If two ideas conflict, the Bible stands true - irrespective of our knowledge, our feelings, or anything for that matter.

And so in this case concerning the true nature of the earth - is it flat or globular - don't believe me, let us just let the Bible speak for itself. No commentary. No explanation. Just pure Biblical verses.

Read all these Biblical references, look them up, pray for revelation. Then come up with a conclusion: Is the Bible describing a flat earth OR a globe earth hanging in space?
