"The belief that the earth is flat has rapidly grown of late, largely through dissemination via countless Internet sites and the influence of social media.
Unfortunately, many Christians have fallen prey to this, misled into believing that the Bible teaches the earth is flat and that, until five centuries ago, the church likewise taught that the earth is flat. In this article, I will examine many of the biblical passages that supposedly teach that the earth is flat, and I will show that in fact they do not. But before doing so, I must respond to two false assumptions mentioned above — that the church historically taught that the earth is flat and that this changed 500 years ago.
GIVEN THE CLEAR RECORD OF HISTORY, WHY IS IT SO COMMONLY BELIEVED TODAY THAT MOST PEOPLE, AND ESPECIALLY THE CHURCH, THOUGHT THAT THE EARTH WAS FLAT?"

Why does Jubilee Resources make free tracts & articles available?
God’s commission for Jubilee is based on Ezekiel 33:1-9, and Luke 4:18-21.According to the Bible, Jubilee years were times of restitution. Debts were cancelled, slaves set free, families reunited and lost or forfeited inheritances restored. Every year was prophetic of the ministry of Jesus the Messiah. The Jubilee was proclaimed on the basis of the work of the High Priest on the Day of Atonement - so the liberating ministry of Jesus is founded on His atoning work. Jesus began His public ministry by reading the passage from the prophet Isaiah (Luke 4:18-21). All the liberties of the Jubilee year are now available to us through the redemptive work of Jesus at Calvary, and we all have the responsibility to preach this Gospel of Redemption and to proclaim the Atonement. When Messiah returns, God’s people will be totally free from all sin, sickness and disease, death and curse. The Biblical Jubilee will then be fully realised.
Our role is to educate, because deceived people don't know they are deceived people.
