Does Enoch describe the earth as being flat?
“Let us examine some of its passages that supposedly do. I will quote from M. Knibb’s translation, with notes by Andy McCracken. Enoch 18:1–5 reads,”

And I saw the storehouses of all the winds, and I saw how with them He has adorned all creation, and I saw the foundations of the Earth.
And I saw the cornerstone of the Earth. And I saw the four winds which support the Earth and the sky.
And I saw how the winds stretch out the height of Heaven, and how they position themselves between Heaven and Earth; they are the Pillars of Heaven.
And I saw the winds which turn the sky and cause the disc of the Sun and all the stars to set.
And I saw the winds on the Earth which support the clouds and I saw the paths of the Angels. I saw at the end of the Earth; the firmament of Heaven above.
Flat earther’s are obsessed with the book of Enoch. I’ve notice this mainly from YouTube and social media. Including the online studies…

Five days ago, locusts swarmed Mecca’s Grand Mosque. This is referred to as the holy city. The Lord of Heaven’s Armies may be using that to wake those people up. You know, give ’em opportunity to wise up. He doesn’t expect rituals or public prayer, perhaps. Or, all the hatred in that place, go figure. We are given a slim chance to stop a hate mentality from within. Religious doctrine s evil to the core because it leaves things out: The Spirit!
God sent “locusts” that torture people (Revelation 9:1-11). Remember Moses also. Why? Pay attention!

The Lord of Heaven’s Armies chooses obedient servants. Yet, angels are unseen spirits. Be cautious of humanity’s interpretation, doctrine, fanatics. I’m trying not to be overly enthusiastic myself. It is repulsive to some; it was to me.
The book of Enoch is divine clarity of Revelations, Daniel, Job, Isaiah along with scripts for the modern era and future destiny of people. Enoch also warns sorcerers, murderers, thieves, scorners, those opposed to kindness; it is a compelling argument. Following man-made doctrines, churches, cults, religion is a destructive pathway—worship the Lord in spirit or fall. Have confidence in Christ alone.
Jesus warned, “Do not cast your pearls to swine lest they trample them under foot and turn to attack you.” To be clear, it is not my job to save the world. When immaturity inclined me to witness for Christ, it was disastrous. What did I learn? Jesus said, “Be willing to take up your cross and follow me.” Yes, believers are persecuted, mocked, ridiculed. Vile people are filled with hatred. Yet, “God is not mocked.” He will not put up with that very long. Be enlightened! The subtle, gentle spirit of a child has greater honor. My Lord does not need people at all.
“Some passages of the Book of Enoch that supposedly teach that the earth is flat are ambiguous. However, a few passages do appear to indicate the writer(s) of the Book of Enoch believed the earth is flat. However, other cosmological details of the Book of Enoch clearly contradict the preferred cosmology of modern flat-earth proponents. This selective reading of the Book of Enoch is misleading at best.”—Dr. Danny R. Faulkner, 2018
