line Ecology

Do you take ecology seriously?

Many Christians do not. In fact, many have over-reacted to the modern (and admittedly pagan) forms of “earth worship” by treading upon and treating the earth as if it were nothing more than their personal resource for wealth and perhaps even their personal waste receptacle.

If more Christians did take ecology seriously, they would study God’s creation, see how carefully God designed all his creatures (i.e., mineral, plant, animal, and human) to coexist in symbiotic systems and societies, stand upon it as inherently holy ground, and seek to become better care-takers of God’s created world.

God calls you to take ecology seriously:

For in the beginning, God said to man “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth…” not to defile and destroy it, but “… to cultivate and keep it.” (Gen. 1:28 and 2:15)
