All of history until Copernicus, including the Bible and all the churches, supported a geocentric view. The “heliocentric” view was invented by pagans – namely, the atheist Copernicus.
Many were burned at the stake by the church for supporting the lie of the heliocentric universe, because it denied the Bible and threatened the church. Even hundreds of years later, there is zero scientific evidence to support the heliocentric view, which denies the Bible’s geocentric (earth-centered) view.
The Bible supports that the Earth is at the center of the universe. Real science also supports this truth, and so does the Bible. On the other hand, the heliocentric view, that is, the sun-centric model, was invented by pagans and is a pagan view.
1 Genesis 1:2-3 – The Earth was created first
In Genesis, the Earth was created before all of the universe. There are a great deal of other evidence, but this is one of the most glaring.
Genesis 1:2: “Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”
Following this, with the Earth being all that existed at first, next, God created the Sun. Genesis 1:3 says, “And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.”
God created the Sun after God created the Earth. The Earth was first, and then God created the Sun.
2 Ecclesiastes 1:5 – The Sun is what moves
Ecclesiastes 1:5 says, “The sun rises and the sun sets, and hurries back to where it rises.”
The Bible says that it is the Sun which moves, not the Earth.
3 Psalm 104:5 – The Earth does not move
Psalm 104:5 says, “He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.”
God says that the Sun moves, but God also says that the Earth can never be moved.
It is obvious that God created the Earth at the center of the universe, and this is fully supported by real science. For more about the science behind it, see: Scientific & Astronomical Evidence That Heliocentric View & Spinning Earth Are Myths.
A word of warning
Please bear in mid, however: atheists over the centuries have so demonized any rejection of their philosophy which they call “science”, that it is very challenging to express this view to average people who simply believe whatever they have been told.
As a result, beware of who you tell, because good and innocent people may think you are crazy for not blindly accept every lie you have been spoon fed in “science” class. While denial of evolution or the Big Bang has received a lot of Christian publicity over the years, so that it is not insane to deny it to your Christian friends (but you may be called crazy in a public college science class for denying it), the heliocentric view on the other hand has not received almost any criticism in recent years.
Churches have been too afraid of being labeled as crazy and false by rejecting this view, despite the truth that besides the words in an atheist science textbook, there is zero real scientific evidence to support the heliocentric model. So be careful of who you talk to, and beware to keep certain truths to yourself when they do not matter much with regards to salvation.
Rather, focus your efforts on explaining the gospel, rather than attempting an effort of futility at waking someone up to the truth they have been lied to their entire lives about the spinning moving earth and unmoving sun. It may simply be too much for some people to handle, because it’s a foundational view of the world, and some people simply cannot handle discovering that such a huge thing was a lie their whole lives. As a result, they would rather not think about it.
