Caring for God’s Creation

Caring for God’s Creation

“God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.”    Ge 2:15 NKJV

For generations the church was silent on the sin of slavery. That’s because it was popular and economically advantageous; not to mention that some church leaders had slaves of their own. But when the church finally acknowledged its wrong, it helped lead the way to reform. Today we can’t even imagine life any other way! Well, some of us are waking up to the fact that caring for God’s creation is not just something “tree huggers” do. A resolution at the Southern Baptist Convention condemning those responsible for the oil spill in the Gulf illustrates this. Southern Baptist theologian Russell Moore, in an eloquent statement about how the oil spill would devastate his beloved home town ofBiloxi,Mississippi, acknowledged: “For too long we evangelical Christians have maintained an uneasy ecological conscience. I include myself in this indictment.” Then he asked, “Will people believe us when we speak about the One who brings life, and that abundantly, when they see we don’t care about that which kills and destroys?” The same God who put potatoes in the ground for us to eat, put oil in the ground for us to use. But He surely isn’t happy when we pollute His oceans and kill His creatures in our attempt to get it. “You have made him to have dominion [management and stewardship] over the works of Your hands…even the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea” (Ps 8:6-8 NKJV). Just because we are going to heaven doesn’t mean we can “trash” God’s beautiful earth!
