I know that this post is a little outside the normal parameters of this blog but more than a few people who follow me are Christians and it is my conviction that because of bad theology much of the Church is not active in Environmental Issues.
This has a Christian flavour but is also important to Christian and non-Christan alike, we all have to live on this planet.
Yahweh gave Adam a mandate to care for the planet He had provided for him.
As Christians, we have a caretaker mandate from God to care for this planet.
Other than how cruel we are on the animals and the environment Yahweh has charged us with looking after.
Futurism has taught most of the Church that Yeshua is coming soon.
If Yeshua is coming back in our immediate future what motivation do we have to care long-term for our planet?
Yeshua has been coming back tomorrow for 2,000 years and look at the state of our planet.
My challenge to us would be this.
What if Yeshua does not come back for another 2,000 years.
What state will our planet be in then?
Will we have to give an account to Father one day?
Will He say to us?
What have you done to the planet I gave you to look after and care for ?
Global climate change gets a lot of airtime in the public arena, but waste plastic products causing harm to our environment and our animals is becoming catastrophic and needs to be exposed and we have to face it head-on.
Please brothers and sisters what are we leaving for our children and our children’s children ?
Will they stand up and say what did you leave us?
Should Christians become more active in caring for this planet?
