The Role of Synonymy

There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.

(1 Corinthians 15:40-41) KJV

The Role of Heliocentricity

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

(2 Thessalonians 2:9-12) NKJV

Seeing but not Perceiving

And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.

(Isaiah 6:9) KJV

Johannes Kepler was hired by Tycho Brahe as a mathematician to analyze the extensive charts and tables which documented Brahe’s observations of the cosmos.
