Hello, friends. Please give me some grace here. I am sharing something, and I just wanted to say that I am not sharing this to be quarrelsome or divisive. That is not my intention at all. But rather, since I am a person who believes that the universe does not operate according to the Copernican, heliocentric model that we were taught in school, I feel somehow compelled to share a little bit of food for thought…
You may ask why this is important. And that’s a fair question. Friend, to answer your question, I also have to ask you a few questions:
Is it important whether evolution is true or not?
Is it important whether the “big bang” is true or not?
Is it important whether aliens exist or not?
And ultimately, is it important whether the Bible is true or not?
I think these are important questions. And so, I tend to think it is important to know what is really true, in general, rather than believing things that are false… And somehow, I do believe these ideas in this video regarding cosmology are grounded in Scripture also.
Are these things a “salvation issue”? No, not necessarily. But on the other hand, there have been people who have learned about Biblical cosmology (how our earth and the heavens exist according to the Bible, including the “firmament” dome overhead, etc.), and then because of that, they have learned about the God of the Bible and gotten saved. So, for them it /was/ a “salvation issue.”
But even with that being said, again please just have grace with me, friends. I’m not trying to make this a bigger deal than it ought to be. And I’m not trying to stir a pot and make anyone angry. I’m just sharing some thoughts, and I leave it up to you what you think about it.
I personally think that it is important stuff — and increasingly so as we go further and further along into the “last days” and Jesus’ return (and also the coming of the anti-Christ) becomes sooner and sooner — so that is solely why I share it. I want you, friend, to be ready for the end of days when Jesus returns, and I don’t want you to be deceived by the false “Christ” that shall come in the name of peace and unity and deceive many.
May God’s true peace be yours in Christ Jesus, the only Way, Truth, and Life.
