Hell is Expanding in the New Testament

And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.

(James 3:6) NKJV

It may seem off the wall to claim that the expansion of hell is the cause of global warming. That’s because we’re in the third generation (X, Y and Z) who’ve been raised to think that hell’s a myth.

The thing is, hell isn’t mythological, and it’s becoming increasingly obvious that it’s a direct causal factor in global warming.

Our time on social media has been very useful and productive. When you say something controversial like “hell is expanding, it’s the cause of global warming” you get a lot of push back. Many people, especially Gen Z, are affronted by the mere possibility of the notion that they have to deal with anything so obviously out of whack as hell being real. There’s a lot of indignation. Needless to say, social media has trained everyone how to react against any statement that they don’t like. Sometimes they simply reformulate the sentence. Add a touch of pseudoscience and you get something like:

If hell were expanding it would be cooling.

– Aghast Gen-Zer fumbling Boyle’s law.

As daft as this may sound the notion has been used as the basis for an exam question and there’s a hilarious response to it which is a great way to learn a little about Boyle’s law. The answer is moot because the premise of the question doesn’t take into account that hell is expanding due to the continual influx of human souls and debris. Boyle’s law doesn’t apply.

Is Hell Exothermic or Endothermic?

Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)? Support your answer with a proof.

Other people who are less adept might say something like “that’s all Old Testament, there’s nothing in the New Testament which means that we have to believe in hell.” Or, “hell has got nothing to do with Christianity.” Obviously the people who say things like that don’t know the Bible as well as their online presence is designed to make you believe, but for their sake let’s bring this back to Jesus.

If Christianity is the religion of Jesus Christ, then we should probably pay attention to what he says, right? Jesus spoke more about hell than he did about heaven. There are many New Testament passages which refer to hell, but only two which pertain to the issue of it’s expansion or the physical structure of the Earth which is necessary for this to be true. Fortunately one of them is a fairly extensive passage from which context we can confirm the presence of a great gulf of open space between the lower mantle and the surface of the core.
