And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.(Luke 16:23) KJV
A lot of people are troubled by the question, if God is loving why would he send people to hell? Making the case for why is quite involved and most people will simply tune out and decide that they don’t need a God like that. To their peril.

He sings before men and says:
‘I sinned and perverted what was right,
and it was not repaid to me.
He has redeemed my soul from going down into the pit,
and my life shall look upon the light.’
“Behold, God does all these things,(Job 33:27-30) ESV
twice, three times, with a man,
to bring back his soul from the pit,
that he may be lighted with the light of life.
Creation has a purpose which combines the spiritual goal of separating good from evil with the physics of separating light from darkness. It gives us a unified theory of everything within the broad narrative of scripture.

O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.(Psalms 30:3) KJV
The direction of motion is a clue that we’ve used to put all of the puzzle pieces together. In this case a soul was brought up from the grave so that it didn’t have to go down to the pit.

Hell is down, deep and below; heaven is up, high and above. There are many examples in scripture which are consistent with this orientation. Hell is never referred to as above, heaven is never referred to as below.

He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.
Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers.(Job 33:18, 22) KJV
We (that’s me and the Holy spirit) have made an extensive study of how the zones of the interior of the Earth, or levels of hell, may be deduced from Biblical Hebrew and Greek.

The Reason for Hell
For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.(Psalm 16:10) KJV
The reason for hell is: the temporary storage of the accumulated impurity and corruption which is inherent in creation. It’s a consequence of the creation of gravity, and it’s required for the purification of creation.
