    CLIMATE CHANGE, A FAILURE OF STEWARDSHIP

    The Bible Calls for Moral Action on Climate Change; To ignore climate change is to abuse the moral call to care for the environment, and generations to come will suffer

    Jim Wallis, May 20, 2014 (Time Magazine)

    “…[I]n the opening pages of Genesis…we are told that humans were created in God’s image and given a divine mandate to care for Creation (Gen. 1:26-31)…Unfortunately these passages have often been used and abused to advance countless agendas, often to the great detriment of the Earth and its inhabitants. The deep sense of stewardship implied by and inherent in these verses is ignored…The most recent example of this unfortunate mindset can be seen in the recent comments made by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) denying that human activity contributes to climate change. He claimed proposals attempting to address the troubling climate trends were problematic because they might hamper economic growth…President Obama outlined an agenda for addressing climate change…[F]irst, a transformative investment in clean energy; second, a significant reduction of dirty energy; and third, a collective commitment in every part of our society to save energy. It’s really as simple as that…Here is the moral narrative. What will your grandchildren’s grandchildren ask about why we, and why you, did not do what was necessary for them? Why were we so selfish and short-sighted?...And here is the biblical and spiritual narrative: does care for God’s creation really allow us to exploit the earth and its resources for short term economic self-interest? Is that good stewardship and the humble worship of God?...” click here for more
