Stewardship

What do Christians believe about caring for the environment?

 

Why is it important to look after the environment?

How does a view in a creator God affect how some Christians respond to environmental issues?

Christians believe that God created the world and that He created the environment in which we live. God cares for the world, in fact, one of the first instructions He gave to humankind was to look after the land. So, Christians believe it is their responsibility to care for the earth. This is called stewardship; looking after the world to pass on to the next generation.
