Today Christians must act along with other religions to save the precious creation.

The problem for mankind is the speed with which that destruction is taking place.

If we destroy our environment we destroy ourselves.
  • In an old American Indian saying “ If you pollute your own bed and then lie in it what does that say about you.”
  • We need to have a sense of moral responsibility.
  • We need a value system to act now to save the planet for the future.

God & the Environment
  • If we destroy our own environment, we are acting against God and ourselves.
  • We are not spiritual.
  • To have spirit is to show compassion for living things and that includes the world.
  • There is a real danger that we might get this wrong & destroy ourselves.
it s more important to enjoy life to worry about the world s resources
“It’s more important to enjoy life to worry about the world’s resources.”
  • How selfish would that attitude be.
  • The world would be destroyed for our pleasure. The creation would die out and human beings would be no more……………………………………………………………………………………………..

The creation is now in grave danger.

Mankind have treated the natural resources with disregard.

Ignorance of what stewardship meant has led to the world facing catastrophic problems.

If mankind was responsible they world have learnt how to co exist with nature.

Since that cooperation with nature was lacking, the earth faces an uncertain future.

Deforestation, famine, weather changes, pollution and poisoning now have caused the polar caps to melt., the ozone layer to open, skin cancer to increase, and the loss of habitat. This in turn has lead to the extinction of the diverse creatures.

The future is about responsibility and recycling . It is about conservation. All the red words are showing excellence.

slide39

According to Christianity, God created mankind in his image to take responsibility for the creation. The idea of stewardship is expressed in the story of Adam and Eve. When they fell from grace they showed how far people were from the ideal that God expected. In the Bible there is evidence that God wants mankind to love and take care of the creation. In the Roman Catholic Church they made a statement about the creation in 1988. They said that the earth and all life on it is a gift from God given to mankind share and develop, not to dominate and exploit.

slide40

They felt that our actions have consequences for the rights of others and for the resources of the earth. The goods of the earth and the beauties of nature are to be enjoyed and celebrated as well as consumed. We have the responsibility to create a balanced policy between consumption and conservation. We must consider the welfare of future generations in our planning for and utilisation of the earth's resources.

slide42

The World Council of Churches has said:

The dignity of nature as creation needs to be bound up with our responsibility for the preservation of life.

slide43

Our world is so beautiful, precious and valuable for our own enjoyment. How can we be so utterly thoughtless and allow it to be destroyed?

slide44

We should be able to see the spiritual value in appreciating and conserving the exquisite beauty of the planet for the next generation.If we do not then what will the future entail? The answer to that might be too horrible to contemplate…..
