 Indonesia,
                              the rc church did not perscute galileo. It was the universities who were teaching pagan ideas about science and space who caused him to be investigated and taken to court.
The rc church proscuted galileo for his views of the pope and his  sentence was house arrest in his own house.

Actually I did say things incorrectly about Galileo, but souces inform that he was brought to trail for stating that the earth orbits around the sun.
When it was believed that the earth doesn't orbit.

New research says they are all orbiting in the milky way.
Not sure about the context of the bible scriptures but could be that its looking at our perspective of the sun rising and setting. The sun does move anyway.
As for the earth staying still in the bible. That  doesn't mean that it doesn't orbit. It could mean a number of things. That could mean the earth stands firm and we don't fall off  because of gravity, which helps the earth to orbit.

Other considerations are that the earth is not shaken by raging  storms and tsunamis and earthquakes for all this time -  keeping us going.

Although at end times - it will be as the bible also tells us and as we can plausibly see the possibility of the earth being shaken.

Boxing day 2004 is a very disturbing example with the Tsunami that shook the world but mainly affecting parts of Asia and Africa.

The bible has proved its accuracy in so many ways, only people take things out of context.

Everything created and ordained  by God shows. Through the way the sun, moon, planets including the earth orbit and are  not colliding but bringing different seasons.

Hi
Thought this may be of interest.

Jos 10:13  And the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, until the nation took vengeance on their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jashar? The sun stopped in the midst of heaven and did not hurry to set for about a whole day.      

So the question is who is in charge of heaven and earth.

Love and Peace
Dave

Believe in the incorrect and unscientific and non biblical belief of a flat earth has nothing to do with our faith or salvation.

That said to believe in a flat earth means distorting science and the bible.
