The Great Chasm
The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried, and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. And he called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in this flame.’ But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner bad things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.’(Luke 16:22-26) ESV
The parable of the rich man and Lazarus is a description of the internal structure of the Earth that’s in conflict with current popular science theories (SciPop). We need to understand why.

The World Below
(Now this, “He ascended”—what does it mean but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth? He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.)(Ephesians 4:9-10) NKJV
After the crucifixion Jesus descended into the lower parts of the Earth. We’re to understand that he went to gather the souls of the Old Testament saints who’d been awaiting his coming.

The Foundations of the World
Then the earth reeled and rocked; the foundations also of the mountains trembled and quaked, because he was angry.(Psalms 18:7) ESV
Our model of the interior of the Earth groups the various ways which the Hebrew words erets (earth), tebel (world) and sheol (hell) are modified in alignment with the regions of the Earth deduced from seismology.

Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish’s belly, And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.(Jonah 2:1-2) KJV
When Jonah was cast into the sea he drowned. The next thing he was aware of was being in hell, sheol, the underworld realm of the dead. There’s more here than meets the eye.

Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the LORD.(Jeremiah 31:37) KJV
The interior of the earth is not seen. The hope of our generation is that hell is a myth. That would mean that there’s no judgement for sin and we can live immoral lives without fearing any consequences.
Unfortunately the very same data that SciPop uses as evidence that there’s no hell may be used as evidence for hell. That’s how evidence works: it’s evidence of whatever you choose to believe about it. This is known as Matty’s Razor.
We all have exactly the same evidence.– Matty’s Razor
Our choice of paradigm determines what we believe it’s evidence of.
- IF God will cast off the seed of Israel,
- If heaven above can be measured,
- the foundations of the earth can be searched out beneath,
- BUT God doesn’t cast off the seed of Israel,
- heaven above can’t be measured,
- the foundations of the earth can’t be searched out beneath,
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:(Isaiah 46:10) KJV
SciPop has a rationalization for why there’s no hell or great gulf of open space inside the earth, because SciPop wants to be an antidote for guilt, and the fear of of judgment and eternal torment.
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.(Romans 13:12) KJV
If you don’t understand SciPop well enough to know that it’s not a threat to the truth of the Bible, and try to live a Christian life without the truth of the Bible, then you have no armor of light.
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:( Isaiah 46:10 ) KJV
If seismic P-waves can propagate through solid, liquid or gas, how do we know that there is a liquid outer core rather than a great gulf of open space in the P-wave shadow zone?
