And he said, “While the child was alive, I fasted and wept; for I said, ‘Who can tell whether the Lord will be gracious to me, that the child may live?’ But now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”(2 Samuel 12:22-23) NKJV
In his grief over the loss of his first child with Bathsheba David says, “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.” It’s taken to mean that David will one day go to heaven to be with the child, whereas the child, in heaven, can’t return to the Earth.
This passage is one that Pastors point to as evidence that “innocent” children go to heaven. This is pastoral fudge and a capitulation with mainstream science (SciPop) which is the result of not having an absolute frame of reference. It’s not an accurate interpretation because David isn’t talking about heaven, he’s talking about sheol, the underworld realm of the dead. That’s where the dead go after death to sleep with their fathers.
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
It’s a capitulation with SciPop because the current generation of Christian leaders and teachers have, whether they acknowledge it or not, a frame of reference based on heliocentric, or acentric, cosmology. In their mind Earth isn’t at the center of the universe and hell isn’t at the center of the Earth.
In Matty’s Paradigm hell is at the center of the Earth, it’s expanding, and it’s the cause of global warming. Sheol, the underworld realm of the dead, is a series of chambers in the lower mantle beneath all of the continental landmasses which is what SciPop has inconspicuously called the Lehmann discontinuity.
The Lehmann discontinuity is an abrupt increase of P-wave and S-wave velocities at the depth of 220±30 km, discovered by seismologist Inge Lehmann. It appears beneath continents, but not usually beneath oceans, and does not readily appear in globally averaged studies. Several explanations have been proposed: a lower limit to the pliable asthenosphere, a phase transition, and most plausibly, depth variation in the shear wave anisotropy.– Lehmann Discontinuity, definition (Wikipedia)
