For thousands of years everyone regarded the earth as the center of creation and believed that the sun, moon, and stars revolved around it. Early in the 16th century Nicolaus Copernicus proved that this belief was wrong and that the earth revolved around the sun.
The Bible tells us that this earth will someday be destroyed by fire and replaced by a new one.
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.(Revelation 21:1)
This new earth will become God’s dwelling place.
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. (Revelation 21:3)
We know that the world we live in now is not the center of the universe but I think it is possible that the new earth might be. After all it will be God’s dwelling place. Perhaps the erroneous belief that many held in the past will become the truth.
It is a common belief among Christians that when a person dies he immediately goes either to Heaven or to Hell and remains there for all eternity. A careful study of the Bible shows that this is not correct, although it is very close to the truth.
