In a recent article,1 Gentry proposed a new static cosmological model that seeks to explain the Hubble relation as a combination of gravitational and Doppler redshifts. We show that Gentry's model, although supposedly based on general relativity, is inconsistent with the Einstein field equations: (a) it requires delicate fine tuning of initial conditions; (b) it is highly unstable, both gravitationally and thermodynamically; and (c) its predictions disagree clearly with observation.
