Yes, the earth is flat. Yes, we have all been lied to. The globe is a lie. Heliocentrism is a lie. Space travel is a lie. The implications are enormous.
Why would they lie about this? How could this lie be carried on over generations? Why would anyone be so evil to purposely deceive us?
Like it or not, the answers to all these questions are in the Bible. But the Bible also contains the answers to a more important question: now that I know someone created this place, what must I do to be saved? What is there to be saved from?
The deception began back in the Garden of Eden. When God the Creator made mankind, He placed us in paradise. Mankind walked with God and talked with Him directly. But then the serpent came and deceived Eve and convinced her that she could be like God, knowing good and evil, if only she broke the one command that God had given Adam and his wife: Genesis 2:16 Then the Lord God commanded the man, “You may freely eat fruit from every tree of the orchard, 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will surely die.”
Death entered the world when Adam and Eve broke God's command and instead of having eternal life, as was His plan, men were doomed to die. But God had a plan to bring men back into fellowship with Him, and to return them to a state where they could receive eternal life.
Thousands of years later, God sent His only begotten son down into the world to be born of a virgin. This was necessary so this man would not be the seed of Adam, tainted with sin. Jesus was born and lived as men lived, was tempted as men are tempted, but never sinned. He allowed himself to be the lamb of God. In place of all the lambs sacrificed to God to cover over the sins of men, Jesus would be the one perfect sacrifice to pay for the sins of all mankind. Only the sacrifice of God himself could accomplish this. Jesus suffered the most painful death known to mankind. He died. After three days he rose from the grave, signifying the acceptance of the sacrifice in place of mankind. Jesus appeared to many witnesses for 70 days, then rose to heaven to sit at the right hand of his father.
During Jesus' short time on earth, he walked with men and taught them. Here is an example of how the religious elite reacted to Jesus.
Then they said to Jesus, “We were not born as a result of immorality! We have only one Father, God himself.” 42 Jesus replied, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come from God and am now here. I have not come on my own initiative, but he sent me. 43 Why don’t you understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot accept my teaching. 44 You people are from your father the devil, and you want to do what your father desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, because he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 But because I am telling you the truth, you do not believe me. 46 Who among you can prove me guilty of any sin? If I am telling you the truth, why don’t you believe me? 47 The one who belongs to God listens and responds to God’s words. You don’t listen and respond, because you don’t belong to God.”
Satan, the deceiver of men, the father of lies, the devil...this being is bent on mankind's destruction. When you believe this evil being, and think you can be gods. When you believe the devil's lies that God is not the one who created everything, Jesus is not the only way God has provided mankind to gain eternal life in heaven, then you are doomed to join in the devil's punishment.
Matthew 25:31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be assembled before him, and he will separate people one from another like a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. 34 Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or naked and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the king will answer them, ‘I tell you the truth, just as you did it for one of the least of these brothers or sisters of mine, you did it for me.’
41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire that has been prepared for the devil and his angels! 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink. 43 I was a stranger and you did not receive me as a guest, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ 44 Then they too will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not give you whatever you needed?’ 45 Then he will answer them, ‘I tell you the truth, just as you did not do it for one of the least of these, you did not do it for me.’ 46 And these will depart into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

Put your trust in him. Believe in him and you will be saved from this terrible consequence. Please don't believe the lies of satan.
