Does the Christian Gospel guide us to environmental stewardship?
As human activity continues to change the climate, drive mass extinctions, and degrade soil, water and air, human activity is needed to reduce and reverse these impacts. Christians could and should be deeply interested in mobilizing to help. Religious beliefs shape our ethics and behavior, including our relationship to the environment and to our local and global neighbors who are especially affected by environmental degradation. But Christianity has a tense relationship with the environmental movement which has led some to question whether Christians should be involved in environmental stewardship at all. Our latest video, The Gospel and the Environment, explores the Christian gospel and what it can tell us about environmental stewardship.
