Refuting the Flat Earth
These were some of the controversies that the movement had to address back then, which were, for the most part, healthy growing pains. I am happy to say that, since then, the gospel is being freely shared with the Jewish people, and the definition of terms to identify ourselves has melted down to Messianics, Messianic Jews, Ephraimites, Hebrew Christians, and Lovers of Israel. Some non-Messianics still call us Heretics or False brethren. Also, we all generally keep Sabbath and festivals but not necessarily on the same date or calendar. We also don’t say God’s name the same way and, just for fun, we have an assortment of differing groups and factions all over the world far greater than the different flavors of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. (Sarcasm intended)
Get ready for this… One of those factions thinks that the earth is flat.
This is what gives me pause and causes me to contemplate the tremendous progress we have made in moving God’s program forward in these last days!
