Genesis

Spread the love

Where All We Know Began

  Then God said: “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every creeping animal that is moving on the earth.”

Genesis 1:26

The environmentalist have this part right, we are to care for the Earth. Unfortunately for many activists, they have rejected creation for political pursuits and thereby have discounted God, the creator of this planet. Many religions have also paid little heed to this and most of these pursue eastern philosophies. It is an odd mix of religious thought and opposite result from what is intended. When you read the passage above it is quite simple.

Subjection only means to care for lesser beings. Those with no conscience or ability to show love as we have. What subjection does not mean is to do whatever we want to the planet or the animals. In our case it means to care for them as stewards of the planet.

God is fully aware of what some do here and He will not abide His creation being fouled as it has been for many decades. We can try all we can but it is really out of our control as instead of being stewards of the Earth we have become users of the Earth to enhance wealth and power. How opposite from His intentions can we possibly be? We have maxed out our leeway.
