Today is Earth Day!
I hope you remembered to buy her something nice this year. And no, she doesn’t want a box of chocolates.
While liberals are getting all lovey-dovey over Mother Earth, hard core conservatives are doing their very best to expose this green fraud of a day! I’ve seen conservative Christian even use biblical justification for why we SHOULDN’T practice conservation and celebrate Earth Day. The Bible DOES say, after all, “Heaven and earth shall pass away…” (Matthew 24:35) and God DOES command us to have dominion over the earth, not to be tree-hugging pansies.
These are great examples of misusing the Bible to suit your own purposes. It’s called “proof-texting,” finding a few verses (almost always out of context) to PROVE whatever point you already believe.
Except the Bible doesn’t give the thumbs up to destroying the earth for the sake of humanity. In fact, there is biblical justification for playing an active role in conservation.
In the creation account, humanity is tasked with overseeing God’s creation – to fill the earth and subdue it and to have dominion over the animals. This is not carte blanche to run amuck and destroy things. Whose creation is it?
Humanity is merely tasked to be the managers and stewards of God’s creation. King David once wrote:
The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, the world and a those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the waters (Psalm 24:1-2)
If Christians were to take seriously the idea that God created the world and has put us in place as managers of HIS property, shouldn’t that impact how we care for the environment?
Christians should be LEADING THE CHARGE when it comes to conservation. Earth Day shouldn’t be something we see Christians arguing against – Earth Day should be a celebration of the creative God who set this world into motion and entrusted humanity to care for it!
So here’s to you, Earth, and the God who created you.
May we do right by God and his creation.

Leviticus 18::::Unlawful Sexual Relations and “Earth Day”
Leviticus 18:22 “‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman”
Leviticus 18:24-28 The native-born and the foreigners residing among you must not do any of these detestable things, 27 for all these things were done by the people who lived in the land before you, and the land became defiled. 28 And if you defile the land, it will vomit you out as it vomited out the nations that were before you.
LGBT defiles the land, not by cutting down a tree. The land vomits out corruption as outlined by the Profits and then Christ throughout Scripture. Frankly no amount of Carbon credits or Earth Day celebrations will save the earth from God final wrath. Only if man condemns Biblical sin and strives not to continue will we delay the eventual Judgment and the Earth’s destruction.

It is our job to take care of our orb.
Good words, Lt. Linzey!
Those who take the Bible seriously should have an active role in caring for the planet. While I believe that spirituality is of greater importance than ecology, nevertheless, it is part of the biblical message that we represent the Creator to the world. And that “world” includes the people and the planet.
