God created the world and instructed Adam to care for the earth and its resources (Gen 1:26,28, 2:15). We are to wisely utilise and gain sustenance from the world’s resources and assets in a sustainable way rather than abuse, with little regard for the future, by wasteful exploitation. Pollution is harmful to humans, the complete food chain and the whole world (Deut 20:19).
As Christians we should be concerned about the environment, but more importantly our spiritual lives, not allowing the pollution of the world’s system to defile us – through TV, magazines, internet, entertainment and friends. Don’t compromise Bible principles or absorb any destructive values from those you mix with – refuse to allow the world to squeeze you into its mould (Rom 12:1,2).
Value and respect your natural surroundings but only worship God
physical world to the loving God who made these things and desires a relationship with us. People who will last for all eternity are more valuable to Him than animals or things.
