Then the Lord said to his people, “Keep watching the nations around you, and you will be astonished at what you see. I am going to do something that you will not believe when you hear about it.(Habakkuk 1:5) Good News Translation
The mechanism of gravity acts on our spiritual condition. Believing in Jesus Christ is the power to overcome gravity and escape the Earth and its outcome. This is why Jesus is the name above all names.
We (that’s me and the Holy Spirit (my imaginary friend (sent by my magical sky daddy))) have laid a foundation for the Biblical doctrine of gravity but we’re using terms, like A Gravity and p gravitational attraction, so we need to discern stable definitions of our terminology.
Good science depends on having accurate definitions and upon the consistent application of terminology. Our deductive process of harmonizing scripture with Physics works in such a way that, as we systematically analyze how the Bible interacts with nature, we can eventually deduce the difference between W and Z bosons. We start by identifying the components of a gravitational mechanism of redemption.
Biblical Gravitation, terminology
|A||Agape gravity||God’s love and forgiveness, anti-gravity|
|G||gravitational constant||a property of A|
|p||phileo gravitational attraction||the attractive force of a body, an effect of A, influenced by desire, lust, pleasures|
|pG||tendency to accumulate into a mass||the total energy of a body, measured by the Cavendish experiment, what popular science (SciPop) calls gravity|
|M||Mosaic gravity||the total pG of the accumulated mass of corruption at the center of Earth|
|g||acceleration due to gravity||a measurement of M|
|q||quickening (everlasting life)||power to overcome M through faith in Jesus Christ|
Decoding the Gospel
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.(Romans 8:1-8) KJV
How do we overcome M gravitational attraction? This is where Jesus Comes in. The passage above describes how we are condemned under the law but that we’ve been set free by Jesus Christ. We can apply our theory of gravity to this dynamic very easily. It will help us to understand why Jesus is the name above all names, and why there is salvation is no other name under heaven. We do it by comparing words and phrases with the different parts of our mechanism of gravity.
The Physics of Christianity
God’s love and forgiveness
|M||Mosaic gravity||the law of sin and death, |
the law of God
|pG||phileo gravitational attraction||the flesh,|
enmity against God.
|Christ Jesus, |
his own Son,
the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus,
the righteous requirement of the law.
There’s therefore now no condemnation to them which are [q], who walk not after [pG], but after [A]. For [q] has made me free from [M]. For what [M] couldn’t do, in that it was weak through [pG], [A] sending [q] in the likeness of [pG], and for [M], condemned [M] in [pG]: That the [q] might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after [pG], but after [A]. For they that are after [pG] do mind the things of [pG]; but they that are after [A] the things of [A]. For to be [pG] minded is death; but to be [A] minded is life and peace. Because the [pG] mind is enmity against [A]: for it’s not subject to [M], neither indeed can be. So then they that are [pG] can’t please [A].(Romans 8:1-8) Paraphrased
Believing in Jesus Christ [q] is the power to overcome [M]. By a totally staggering coincidence this just happens to be Newton’s second law of motion, often stated as F=MA, which describes that the mass of an object determines the amount of force necessary to move it.
- IF being dead in sins (pG) is when we’re under the power of the law (M),
- AND we receive the forgiveness of sin (A),
- when we’re quickened (q) through faith in Jesus Christ,
- AND we receive the forgiveness of sin (A),
- THEN pGxq=A.
The Gospel is Physics
|F||Force||A||Agape gravity (God’s love and forgiveness)|
|M||Mass||pG (M)||our weight of sin|
|A||Acceleration||q||quickening (salvation through faith in Jesus Christ)|
In summary we can compile the terminology which we’ve used to describe the gravitational mechanism for redemption.
