And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”(1 Corinthians 1:30-31) ESV
We successfully tested the hypothesis that the deep, the Word of God and Jesus Christ are identities of God the Son. The scriptural context of each one is congruent with the featured passage. It’s Hypothesis 18.

Newton thought that he was smarter than God. Unfortunately it appears that his peers did too from the amount of fawning drivel that is plastered all over the preface to the Principia.

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. (Genesis 1:6-8) KJV
When the Lord said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters… he established the position of the heavens. Considering the passage: when he set a compass on the face of the depth: it’s completely logical to understand the heavens as a circle, or sphere, which has a fixed distance, or radius, from the center.

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
( Genesis 1:6-8 )
Dividing the waters above from the waters below requires at least two things to happen, as we will see. Above what? is a good question, since there was only a formless mass at this time. Whatever was to divide the waters has to be constructed in the process of dividing them because there was nothing there to do it before. God made a firmament in the midst of the waters, and there is something both under it and above it. The concept of under and above tells us that there is now an up and a down, so an ordering has already taken place, at the beginning of the process of dividing the waters.

In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.(1 John 4:10) ESV
Propitiation is the price paid for our redemption. This was Jesus himself. He lived a sinless life and his sacrifice was sufficient to pay for the sins of the whole world.

Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.(Isaiah 44:6) KJV
We’ve resolved a theory of gravitation with the plan of redemption. It’s part of a unified theory of everything. Redemption is a gift of God’s grace, it’s freely available to all who call upon the name of Jesus Christ.

being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.(Romans 3:24-26) NKJV
Being cleansed of my sin and made holy is achieved through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. This is justification.

But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,(Romans 3:21-23) NKJV
Original sin caused the fallen condition of mankind, but it’s not the reason for the fallen state of creation and and it’s not an excuse for the sin that I/you/we commit. I’m not going to have to pay the penalty for original sin, but I’m going to have to pay the penalty for my sin. Recognition of the fact that we all are sinners is essential for salvation.

Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned –(Romans 5:12) NKJV
Why is original sin such a big deal, and why did Adam and Eve eating forbidden fruit have such a profound impact on the world. Why does it still impact each of our lives today? The simple answer: Physics.
