God Said Man Said

Hung Upon Nothing

Ancient civilizations, besides being ignorant of the earth’s shape, also claimed something or someone was holding it up. The Greeks said that Atlas was forced, as a form of punishment, to carry the earth, the heavens and the great pillar that separates them on his shoulders. India claimed that the earth was held up by four elephants that stood on the back of a giant turtle which in turn was balanced on a cobra snake. In ancient Siberia it was taught that the earth rests on a dogsled driven by a god. Unfortunately the dog had fleas.

Hung Upon Nothing

Before I begin this subject, I would like to speak to you for just a moment. If you have not experienced the second birth in Christ Jesus, click on to "Further With Jesus" on this site. It will be the greatest decision you will ever consider all the days you exist. Welcome to www.godsaidmansaid.com. We're glad you've come.

God's Word is the source of all truth without exception. Just one verse is big enough to swallow the entire universe. All things that you see have been created by and are literally held together by His words. You may ask can we prove that statement? The answer is, "absolutely." (Click on to "Made out of Words" on this site.) God who has created all things out of words by Christ Jesus has given man the Holy Bible which is an owner's manual. It is full of marvelous truths and insights that only the creator could know. These supernatural insights prove without question the veracity of the Word of God. Be assured of this my friends, that God's Word is a sure foundation without error. Set your life upon it and you will not be disappointed. Eternal life will be your lot.

GOD SAID approximately 5,000 years ago, long before geography, long before Christopher Columbus, long before aviation and space shots, that the world is hung in the middle of space upon nothing. Today you might shrug your shoulders and say, "Who didn't know that?" The answer to that question is the whole world didn't know. The Bible records in Job, Chapter 26, Verse 7:

He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

God's Word declares that the earth is floating in space.

MAN SAID: The Bible is the inconsequential writings of men and not to be given credence.

Now THE RECORD. Before Christopher Columbus proved the world to be round, the prevailing wisdom of the day was that the world was flat. A few other voices in the wilderness had suggested the earth's roundness, but it was Columbus who established it. Ancient civilizations, besides being ignorant of the earth's shape, also claimed something or someone was holding it up. The Greeks said that Atlas was forced, as a form of punishment, to carry the earth, the heavens and the great pillar that separates them on his shoulders. India claimed that the earth was held up by four elephants that stood on the back of a giant turtle which in turn was balanced on a cobra snake. In ancient Siberia it was taught that the earth rests on a dogsled driven by a god. Unfortunately the dog had fleas. When the dog stopped to scratch the result was an earthquake. According to West African antiquities the earth is a flat disc. One side of the disc rests on a mountain and the other side is held up by a giant. Mongolia said the gods who made the earth set it on the back of a huge frog. One final example is ancient Central America's account of the square earth. Four gods were reported to hold up the earth...one at each corner.

Long before any man knew, God declared the secret in His Word.

GOD SAID in Job, Chapter 26, Verse 7:

He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

MAN SAID: The Bible is the inconsequential writings of men and not to be given credence.

Now you have THE RECORD.
