The Heresy In “Heliocentricity” (The theory that the sun = ‘Helios’ is the fixed center of our solar system.)
From the very beginning, all men believed and understood that God created the universe and time. So that mankind might have a written account around 1500 B.C. God instructed Moses to write, “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.” It is important that you realize that originally there was just God. There was no heaven and there was no earth, however, “In the beginning,” God created into being; into existence, the heaven and the earth. He spoke it into existence, “the heaven and the earth,” from nothing, into something. Of these two things, we are told “and the earth was without form,” and concerning heaven “darkness was upon the face of the deep, and the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” Apparently, the heaven was a “deep” of empty dark space, and earth was a ball of water suspended there in the heaven, and the spirit of God moved upon the face of those waters of the earth. Then God said, “let there be light,” and as the spirit of God, “who coverest thyself with light” (Psalms 104:2) traveled over the face of the waters. We are told that this movement of light, of the spirit of God on the earth, then created the first evening and morning of time. And thus, this revolution of the spirit of God, as light, over the face of the fixed earth was accounted as the very first “day.”
Genesis 1 records the progression of the very first full week of time, so that finally, on the fourth day, the visible, physical sun, moon and stars were created to give light upon, and rotate around, the fixed earth. Without question, this is what Adam taught his sons; and Noah taught his sons; and Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob taught their sons; and most of the people of the world believed and took for granted for about 2500 years, until Moses actually wrote it all down. Then Israel copied and taught the scriptures so that all the world, up to even the time of Jesus Christ, understood, and believed that, just as their eyes told them, the sun and “heavenly host” traveled through the sky over the face of a fixed earth. The cosmology of the heavens was just as it appears to be. Elijah, David, even Jesus Christ, knew and understood that the sun is always in motion over, and around, a fixed earth. This is what we understand to be “Biblical Geocentricity” where the earth is not “wandering” as a “planet” is so named, but rather, in a fixed position, as the moon, sun and stars travel in motion around, and give light to the earth. For 4000 years, it was simply and clearly understood.
Panthiestic Heliocentricity was a satanic/pagan concept that all the principals of nature are to be worshipped. Thus images/idols were necessary for “aids of worship.” So, all the planets were named after the gods of legend and myth, along with the months of the year and the days of the week. (The Bible calls them first day, second day, etc). Therefore the importance of worshipping the powereful energy of the sun is paramount and must be placed on center stage in pagan/false religion. Nimrod used the image of a bull in his worship of the sun in his religion of “Baal.” (Pharaoh would demand ultimate preeminence and be worshipped as “Rah,” the sun god.)
As the age of Enlightment began to dawn on modern western civilization, it would be Copernicus around 1450, to resurrect Nimrod’s worship of the creation, instead of the Creator.
In regard to his heliocentric theory, Copernicus consistently appealed to the “harmony” of his system, but it was a harmony ennobled by a sun that he personified, and, some say, deified. Copernicus writes: “In the middle of all sits Sun enthroned. In this most beautiful temple could we place this luminary in any better position from which he can illuminate the whole at once? He is rightly called the Lamp, the Mind, the Ruler of the Universe: Hermes Trismegistus names him the Visible God, Sophocles’ Electra calls him the All-seeing. So the Sun sits as upon a royal throne ruling his children, the planets, which circle round him. The Earth has the Moon at her service. As Aristotle says, in his On Animals, the Moon has the closest relationship with the Earth. Meanwhile, the Earth conceives by the Sun, and becomes pregnant with an annual rebirth.”
Karl Popper shows the origin of these cultic ideas: “Copernicus studied in Bologna under the Platonist Novara; and Copernicus’ idea of placing the sun, rather than the Earth, in the center of the universe was not the result of new observations, but of a new interpretation of old and well-known facts in the light of semi-religious Platonic and Neo-Platonic ideas. The crucial idea can be traced back to the sixth book of Plato’s Republic, where we can read that the sun plays the same role in the realm of visible things as does the idea of the good in the realm of ideas. [Isaiah 5:20 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil.”] Now the idea of the good is the highest in the hierarchy of Platonic ideas. Accordingly the sun, which endows visible things with their visibility, vitality, growth and progress, is the highest in the hierarchy of the visible things in nature. Now if the sun was to be given pride of place, if the sun merited a divine status…then it was hardly possible for it to revolve about the Earth. The only fitting place for so exalted a star was the center of the universe. So the Earth was bound to revolve about the sun. This Platonic idea, then, forms the historical background of the Copernican revolution. It does not start with observations, but with a religious or mythological idea.”
Popper, being a supporter of the heliocentric revolution, couches his critique of Copernicus in rather polite terms, but essentially he is saying that Copernicus’ brainchild had all the earmarks of originating from pagan sun-worship. As Wolfgang Smith notes: “…in the Renaissance movement championed by Marsiglio Ficino, the doctrine came alive again, but in a somewhat altered form; one might say that what Ficino instituted was indeed a religion, a kind of neo-paganism. Copernicus himself was profoundly influenced by this movement, as can be clearly seen from numerous passages in the De Revolutionibus.”
Placing the sun in the center of one’s life is the height of idolatry, and nature worship, as the scriptures warn:
“Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the Lord spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire: Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,…And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the Lord thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.” Deuteronomy 4:15-19
“If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the Lord thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the Lord they God, in transgressing his covenant, And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded.” Deuteronomy 17:2-3
“And he took away the horses that the kings of Judah had given to the sun, at the entering in of the house of the Lord, by the chamber of Nathanmelech the chamberlain, which was in the suburbs, and burned the chariots of the sun with fire.” -King Josiah 2 Kings 23:11
“And he brought me into the inner court of the Lord’s house, and behold, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, and their backs were towards the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.” Ezekiel 8:16
Unbeknownst to almost all modern-day believers in the solar system of Nicholas Copernicus is one stark, but incontrovertible, fact: the popular idea of the Earth revolving around the sun has never been proven. This was the beginning of the universal acceptance of the “Pole-lock Joke,” as Copernicus lived in Poland, and was laughed at by the scientists of his day.
The biblical geocentric universe established by the Creator God, had to be abandoned for a heliocentric model because the lies and deceptions of evolution needed man and humanism to rule the thinking the masses. (No doubt why the primary believers in Heliocentricity are educated folks in the atheistic state sponsored schools and universities. Most of the simple poor masses just believe what they see and experience as related by God in his Bible!)
“The heliocentric theory, by putting the sun at the center of the universe, …made man appear to be just one of a possible host of wanderers drifting through a cold sky. It seemed less likely that he was born to live gloriously and to attain paradise upon his death. Less likely, too, was it that he was the object of God’s ministrations.” -Morris Kline
And thus we now arrive at today’s time of the Twenty-first century and the rule of Satan’s son, lord antichrist! Of course, the destruction of fetal tissue is a simple matter of a woman’s choice and of no moral consequence. What’s God got to do with it? “God forbid: yea, let God be true; and every man a liar” (Romans 3:4).
“I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing.” (Hosea 8:12)
“But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all in the law and in the prophets.” (Acts 24:14)
