- As Christians, we take care of the planet because:
- God says that it is good (Genesis 1).
- God put us in charge of it (Genesis 1:28).
- God says stewardship is important (Matthew 24:45-51).
- God will punish those who are destroying the earth (Revelation 11:18).
- We need a balanced, biblical view of creation care.
- Health is important to Christians. Planetary health affects personal health.
- “Business v. Environment” is an over-simplified false dichotomy.
- Global warming/climate change is only one issue in environmentalism (taking care of God’s planet).
