A Biblical Perspective on Environmental Stewardship
Environmental stewardship is wiser and more biblical than that of mainstream environmentalism. We should put faith and reason to work simultaneously for people and ecology by attending to the demands of human well-being and the integrity of creation.
Consequently, the movement for environmental protection has grown as Western wealth has grown, giving rise to a strong environmental consciousness and to protective environmental legislation.
Christian environmental stewardship, also known as “Creation Care” takes a different view, reminding us that we cannot honestly declare that we love God, nor love Jesus, while at the same time destroying His creation, which He declared to be good and exists to glorify Him.
