    Is our Earth flat?

    The earth is not shaped like a pancake. It is shaped more like a ball.

    Bible supports round earth. Calls it a circle: Isaiah 40:22

    I've never met anyone who believes in flat earth who has travelled much, because travellers know that when you fly in one direction long enough you end up in the same starting point, because the earth is a sphere. People do this every day, so there's no mystery to it. You can also prove it by the sun setting in different times around the world. If it was flat the sun would set at the same time. Also you wouldn't have opposite seasons depending on which pole you're near. You can also just measure the shadow length and angle of a common item like a straw and be on the phone at the exact time as someone else measuring it on the opposite side of the earth. Obviously one side would be nighttime which already refutes the theory, but if it was day, the shadows are very different lengths. There's so much evidence suporting sphere earth that it's mind boggling why people can't even agree on that.

    It quite literally is impossible for the Earth to be flat. Flat earthers attempt to twist scripture out of context.

    Here are a few:

    Matthew 4:8 Job 28:24 Job 37:3 and quite often Revelation 7:1 the four corners of the earth.

    Simply an old sailors myth? Afraid the ships would fall off of the earth when the horizon line was reached. Fortunately, they just kept sailing and it never happened.

    We know that science changes daily but physics plays a large role in your question.

    If the earth were flat would different regions be experiencing different seasons? Winter, summer.

    Do planes fly around the earth or do they go one way and then have to turn around to get back. Satellites orbiting. Different views of stars. Is New York city seen from hundreds of miles away. If the earth is flat what's on the other side. If the flat what satellite image shows the "thin ends" or sides of the earth.(its a globe, sphere, round, spinning) No NASA didn't photoshop every single image.

    Let's dig in and pray fervently for the world right now. Should you feel burdened to do so. We are a few bad decisions away from seeing a "flattened earth" if you follow.

    How wonderful is it to Not know all of the workings and mysteries of God.

    Hopefully this helped in some manner.

    Good evening, that question is spreading like wildfire on the internet social media. I am not sure but was taught that the earth is round. My only suggestion is when in doubt ask Jesus...with any question that the truth. God bless.
