I looked at the list of supposed proof-texts, but they are clearly figurative, since if interpreted literally they contradict themselves:
Which is it? Is the earth suspended or set upon pillars? Man has been all over the world, and no one has ever reported literal, giant pillars upon which the world rests. Hundreds, maybe thousands of satellites have circled the earth, yet none has crashed into these pillars or been able to take pictures of them. ... Now, if the pillars are to be interpreted figuratively, then why not the rest of the verse?web-source wrote:1 Sam. 2:8 – “For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, and on them he has set the world.”
1 Chron. 16:30 – “yea, the world stands firm, never to be moved.” This and many other passages say very plainly that the earth does not move.
Job 26:7 – “He stretches out the north over the void, and hangs the earth upon nothing.”
The quoted verses figuratively picture the power of the Lord. As we can imagine a man building a house and his greatness compared to the house, we can extrapolate from that concept to conceive of the great Lord who built the earth and His greatness relative to it (Hebrews 3:4). If one takes these verses literally, then he must explain their contradictions.
If the verses are to be figuratively interpreted, then God has nothing to say on the subject of the earth's absolute movement relative to the sun or anything else. You have simply read too much into a multitude of passages.twinc wrote:this is notwhat is being or contested - what is being contested is whether it moves or it does not move and who says what - twinc
The Catholic church might have to admit they were wrong, but God's Word is consistent with what we see in science.
