IT’S NOT EITHER/OR, IT’S BOTH/AND
All the hype surrounding rising oil prices, extreme weather conditions, and food crises around the world has caused the majority of people to begin considering human impact on the earth. The world community is finally admitting that our industry and daily practices don’t exist in a vacuum separate from the air, water, soil, plants, and animals around us.
However, despite the general outcry, numerous groups still refuse to confront the fact that we need to change the way we do things on our planet. Among them are many Christians. Perhaps they see environmental stewardship as a secular issue, not serving the Christian agenda of reaching the lost; unfortunately for them, this “secular vs. sacred” attitude is untrue and unbiblical.
