I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows—such a one was caught up to the third heaven.(2 Corinthians 12:2) NKJV
Matty’s Paradigm isn’t the same as young earth creationism (YEC) as taught by groups like Answers in Genesis (AIG), Creation Ministries International (CMI) or the Institute for Creation Research (ICR).
These organizations provide a “scientific basis” for the traditional beliefs of conservative Christianity. However, they’re non-committal about whether or not hell is a real place and they don’t have a cosmology that allows for a rigid crystalline firmament (the third heaven).
This is the situation: The most well known Christian scientific organizations don’t have heaven or hell and they can’t accommodate the fulfillment of prophecy that the stars shall fall to Earth. They’re attempting to resolve the Bible with the popular science paradigm (SciPop). That’s known as compromising or capitulation, either word works fine.
The fundamental thing which sets Matty’s Paradigm apart is gravity. The Bible has an extensively developed doctrine of gravity which causes a phenomenon called gravitational time dilation (GTD).
YEC misses the point because the Earth may be 6,000 years old, as the Bible tells us, but the remote regions of the cosmos may be 13.8 billion years old, or more, at the same time. This is because of GTD. However, GTD only works to resolve this conundrum in a Geocentrospheric system with an absolute frame of reference. As luck would have it, we live in one.
- IF you were on the Sun you’d be observing heliocentricity,
- SINCE you’re not, you’re on the Earth, you’re observing Geocentrosphericity.
