Issues: Creation Care

Our Creator God has made a magnificent, complex, beautiful world, and this world is not unaffected by what we humans do. 

Our consumption, our use of natural resources, our output of waste – all of these things affect the creation that God made and declared good.

Beyond the direct effects on "the environment," our failure as stewards of creation also impacts the well-being of other humans, particularly the poor, the hungry, and the powerless, who God has called us to aid. 

Christians who are concerned for social justice shouldn't consider creation care and justice as separate or unrelated issues. Indeed, environmental degradation often first and most affects poor and vulnerable populations

"By sovereign appointment we are earthkeepers and caretakers: loving our neighbor, tending the creation, and meeting our needs. God uses our skills in the unfolding and well-being of his world." (Contemporary Testimony, par 10).
