The Earth is Flat & We are Restless!
There are people in our world who vehemently believe it is FLAT and not a globe!
"The Flat Earth Society mans the guns against oppression of thought and the Globularist lies of a new age. Standing with reason we offer a home to those wayward thinkers that march bravely on with REASON and TRUTH in recognizing the TRUE shape of the Earth - Flat." from the website: The Flat Earth Society
"Of all the conspiracy theories that litter the Internet, the flat Earth conspiracy is quite possibly the most curious. After all, the ancient Greeks figured out the planet's shape (and even its circumference) in the third century B.C.
But a fringe society founded in the 1950s, dedicated to insisting that the Earth is flat, has given rise to a modern ground of flat Earth adherents. These believers claim that the Earth is a flat disc, and that evidence that it is round — say, pictures taken from space — are an elaborate hoax involving multiple governments. Opinions differ on exactly how the flat Earth works, with believers concocting elaborate versions of physics and creative interpretations of the solar system to make their theories work..." from the article: Are flat-earthers being serious?
People have held erroneous beliefs in the face of objective and empirical proof since the Fall. We are no different today in fact it seems many are more inclined to believe conspiracies and absolute absurdities than ever before.
Looking closely at the Human Race since the beginning it does not take a PHD to see that aside from God we are hopeless, helpless and death bound. Nothing we have thought of or created has removed the sting and reality of death or the "restlessness' of life, no matter how wealthy and fortunate we may be.
Like a moth to a flame we are attracted to what suits our 'Sin Nature" no matter the cost. Across history intellectuals and dictators have promised salvation, happiness and joy through Communism, Marxism, Nationalism, all the isms...
Lately Scientism has taken a major role but along with Atheism and Evolution is running out of steam.
"God will not be mocked!"
7 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.
Mocking God means disrespecting, dishonoring, denying or ignoring His existence. King David described it as wicked because there is "no fear of God before their eyes" (Psalm 36:1). Therefore God is not mocked for long and eventually He will bring forth consequences for such behavior.
Seeking saving grace and joy from men and their enterprises and evil schemes not only leads to the death of our soul but restlessness. Americans and the modern West see the world in immanent, physical/material terms, which makes it impossible for many to believe in the soul. It then follows people are incapable of discussing or seeking meaning, spirituality, and transcendence.
Without a life centered on Christ our lives become an unending parade of fun, distractions and foolish ventures.
Saint Augustine made this observation: "Because God has made us for Himself, our hearts are restless until they rest in Him."
Let us not be distracted by the world, men and sin, let us put Christ at the center and honor and praise God in all we do!
