R. Sungenis: Although I admire many of the Protestant creationists (including Barry Setterfield) for their stance on Six‐Day creationism and their adherence to the obligation to be faithful to the biblical text, it is precisely that obligation that is ignored when they come to the topic of geocentrism. Most of them don’t know the Hebrew grammar and thus confine their research to doing elementary “word‐studies” of Hebrew words, and even those “studies” are usually off‐kilter and incomplete. The above attempt by Setterfield is no exception. As we will see later, Setterfield’s presumed expert in Hebrew, Bernard Northrup, is even worse since he makes assertions about Hebrew grammar that are quite erroneous.
To begin, I will give a verse by verse exposé so that we can see that there is more to understanding the Hebrew scriptures than is being told to you by Setterfield or Northrup.
