Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!(Matthew 23:24) NKJV
We’re at the dawn of a new age. Building on the foundation of Jesus Christ we (that’s me and the Holy spirit) made a way for the church to thrive as a beacon of light for the next 1,000 years. If the Lord waits that long.
This means saying goodbye to the old age. There’s no need to waste any more time trying to convince Christian leadership that they need to change. The change is coming whether they like it or not. There are some new sheriffs in towns across America where intelligent, inquisitive Millennials and Gen Zs already figured out that something’s not right. When they see the truth they’ll know it.
One of the things that’s wonderful about Matty’s Paradigm, from my perspective not yours, is the retrospection which occurs as we pass from year to year. The first draft of the WHY? devotional was written starting in November 2017. That means that during the course of the year, as we review and update the posts, we have a unique opportunity to see how our state of mind has developed over time.
Things have changed a lot since we updated this post in 2020. It looks like we were pretty disappointed with life at that time. The good news is that we finally figured out what it means to be an influencer. An influencer doesn’t tell people what to do, like a leader of a boss would do. They simply do what they do and people will see it, understand it, and begin to live it. The end times revival has begun, there’s no stopping it now,
For the purposes of tracking personal development we’re going to leave last years post up. This should scare hell back into Millennial pastors so badly that they avoid this outcome at all costs.
We’ve frequently made the mistake of attempting to communicate with leaders in the Christian community with the misguided belief that they can understand the English language. We also frequently make the mistake of thinking that these folk have a grasp of basic science concepts.
Our last attempt to explain to a Pastor that hell is in the center of the Earth didn’t go well. It was over a year ago and we’ve been biding our time since, intentionally avoiding contentious public disputes with other Christians. To understand why these exchanges don’t go well we have to be familiar with the concept of a frame of reference, or point of view. Our frame of reference is what we can see from where we are. One way to illustrate it is with cosmological models.
Heliocentric or Geocentrospheric?
- IF you were on the Sun you’d be observing heliocentricity,
- SINCE you’re not, you’re on the Earth, you’re observing Geocentrosphericity.
Frame of Reference
- We’re on the Earth.
- We observe the cosmos from the Earth.
- We observe that the cosmos orbits the Earth every day.
- Our frame of reference is empirically, and inherently, Geocentrospheric.
This pertains to our attempt to describe recent failed efforts to communicate with Christian leadership because we have different frames of reference. We believe, that’s me, Matty, that hell is at the center of the Earth. Christian leadership doesn’t. From our frame of reference everything in the Bible and all physical evidence and empirical observations lead to the inescapable conclusion that hell is at the center of the Earth.
Hell is at the Center of the Earth
- We believe this because it’s stated in scripture, the Word of God;
- the doctrine of hell aligns with current theories of the internal structure of the Earth which show that there are different zones of density;
- we’ve deduced a theory of Biblical gravitation which allows us to refute the notion that the Earth has a uniform average density;
- our theory of gravitation gives us a mechanism for redemption;
- it gives us a cosmological model which allows for the fulfillment of prophecy and the stars falling to Earth;
- it gives us a plan for the particle physics and fundamental forces of the universe;
- we’ve seismological data which supports the existence of the zones and the locations of their boundaries as described by Jesus,
- and we’ve an abundant stream of oceanographic data which shows that ocean water is warming from the bottom up.
This is ironic: Christian leadership calls us simplistic for believing that hell is at the center of the Earth, as if we’re an intellectual infant who doesn’t understand all of their glorious theology which explains why we’re an intellectual infant. Deducing a theory of Biblical gravitation is far from simplistic. This same Christian leadership, on the other hand, can point to a voluminous mass of textual criticism which explains in minute detail why the Bible doesn’t mean what it says. The frame of reference of Christian leadership is theology which has been developed from this textual criticism.
Hell isn’t at the center of the Earth
- Christians believe what they read in popular press theology;
- which is derived from textual criticism;
- which is an attempt to resolve the Bible with the popular science paradigm (SciPop);
- which is a false narrative of godless existence designed by atheist intellectual elites to make the bible look stupid.
In summary: Christian leadership thinks that the Bible is stupid and therefore anyone, like us, who believes the Bible is also stupid. Simplistic actually. Their word.
