The Lowest Hell

For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.

(Psalms 86:13) KJV

I am making the case that hell is real but I am also attempting to show that this is the result of natural processes. This means by necessity knowing the end from the beginning and the beginning from the end. The only way to know what the earth may have looked like in the past is by what we can see here in the present. This should be pretty obvious but it seems appropriate to point it out. Yesterday I described the current structure of the earth and related it to scripture, however, technically, this month we are looking at what the Bible says happened immediately after the fall of man. There are actually some steps involved in going from the earth as it was at the fall of man to the earth as it is today, so I will give you a brief synopsis.

I’m trying not to get ahead of myself, but on the other hand It’s probably a good idea to have a grasp of the context. I’m also trying to make my posts shorter than they have been getting, so rather than try to cover the whole sequence in one post, we’ll split it up over the next week of posts.

  1. The 2nd Day
  2. Before the Fall (you are here)
  3. The Cursed Earth
  4. Before Noah’s flood
  5. Noah’s flood
  6. Enduring Noah’s flood
  7. Pangaea
  8. The Time of Peleg
  9. Present day

Today’s image shows a proposed internal structure for the earth at the time when creation is completed and before the fall of man. For each physical feature on the diagram I have links to the posts which discuss how the explanation was deduced.

As you can see from the diagram, there is no hell. Hell was not part of the original created earth.
