But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’(Luke 16:25-26) NKJV
We’re at a great advantage over the spaghetti theologians because we’ve deduced how the passage from Luke resolves with a physical reality. We don’t regard any part of this parable as being metaphorical or allegorical.
Jesus describes a great gulf between the lower mantle and the surface of the inner core. This is the area that popular science (SciPop) calls the outer core. We’re going to resolve why Jesus’ model doesn’t match up to current theories about the internal structure of the Earth. Our premise is the principle: God cannot lie and the Bible is true. That’s the solid rock our foundation has been built on, and so we’re going to destroy the (SciPop) model.
It’s a little complicated, but by the time we’re done we’ll have invalidated the Newtonian notion that gravity is a property of mass, aka the space-time of relativity.

Hell (sheol or hades) refers broadly to the underworld realm of the dead and encompasses all of its levels. However, there are times when the context makes it clear that these words refer to a specific level.
