Transcript of Christianity and The Enviroment

Animal Rights
Christians believe that animals have a right to stay alive just as much as we do.

"And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food."
Genesis 1:30


Beliefs
The creation story

'In the beginning, god created the heaven and the earth... The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and look after it'
Genesis 1:1 and 2:15

Christians believe that the world was created by God.
They believe that people should be responsible stewards of creation and should follow and read the Bible.
Christians believe in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth and should therefore treat the earth well as they believe god has passed it on to us.

Humans are in danger of becoming "predators plundering the earth"
Christians believe they should look after and nurture the world instead of causing pollution and physically damaging the environment by not recycling etc.
Christianity teachings
'Man must be reconciled with nature by carefully preserving the integrity of nature, its fauna and flora, its air and rivers, its subtle balances, limited resources and its beauty which praises the glory of the Creator'
Pope John Paul II

This means that christians believe that everyone should be responsible for the state of the world.
Christianity
The environment
"For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit."
Romans 14:17
Christians believe that it shouldn't matter whether your a vegetarian or not and it doesn't have a great matter of importance whereas believing in God is the most important thing rather than what you eat.
