Eve was made by making the man Adam fall asleep. The Fall in the garden. Mankind disobeyed God. They were punished. Today people have to suffer & work hard to achieve . Adam represents all mankind who are responsible for the earth & its future. This is a living spirituality.

It is called stewardship
Adam & Eve represent humanity. We have to learn right from wrong. The perfect world no longer exists.
You need to watch the separate presentation on Adam & Eve here.
Living with the animals & plants in harmony with the environment.
See the separate presentation on the Forest people. Discussion about the natural harmony of life living with nature.
This is what we should do!!!
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.
An appreciation in photographs!!
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.
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.
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.
Co existence with nature
Green house effect
Ozone layer destroyed
Weather pattern changing
The dignity of nature as creation needs to be bound up with our responsibility for the preservation of life.
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?
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…..
