There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has 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 did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to 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, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.(Romans 8:1-8) NKJV
We (that’s me and the Holy spirit) find a clear statement of the mode of action of gravity, as it pertains to the plan of redemption and salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, in Romans chapter 8.
Far from being a metaphorical or poetic rendering of the spiritual transformation of salvation, this is a clear statement of how our theory of gravitation is the mechanism of the plan of redemption. This is where the Apostle Paul explains the connection between being spiritual and alive vs. being carnal and dead. We’ll use the terminology of our theory of gravity to paraphrase the passage above.
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
A paraphrase is a restatement of a text, passage, or work giving the meaning in another form as for clearness; rewording.– Paraphrase, definition (Dictionary)
We’ve paraphrased the text of Romans 8:1-8 by inserting the symbols from our theory in place of the words or phrases which have been used to express the same concepts.
Biblical Gravitation, terminology

|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|

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
Even though this is about the difference between being dead, before salvation, and being alive, after salvation, there’s clear application in the life of the Christian as to how we should walk (conduct ourselves) in a way that enhances and deepens our fellowship with God through the power of the Holy Spirit.
We’re condemned under the law, that’s why we need a savior. If gravity is the means by which all of the sin and corruption in creation will be gathered up for disposal, then it’s an impartial judge between light and dark, good and evil. Gravity is the condemnation. If gravity is the power to condemns us, it has no power to forgive us or set us free, we’re bound by it. We can’t escape from it by the power that’s in us.
Salvation is still through faith in Jesus Christ, that will never change. The only difference is that now we have a theory of gravitation which ties the plan of redemption to a physical process. Believing in Jesus Christ is the spiritual transformation you need. Gravity is the physical mode of action underlying it.
