An ever increasing number of evangelical Christians are making our environment a political issue, and why not? Didnt God create the heavens and the earth, and didnt he intend man to be caretakers of his creation? From a Biblical perspective, fouling the earth is tantamount to spitting on God. From a logical perspective, fouling the earth hurts the quality of life for our children and our childrens' children."For by Him (Christ) all things were created: things in heaven and on earth." (Col. 1:16)
The site for "Christians and Climate" is here. You can find news items, join a mailing list, read their mission statement, which is based on Biblican principles, and take political action.
With allies as varied as environmentalists, evangelicals, and even CEO's of fortune 500 companies, the push to clean up our environment is going to be one of the major political issues of our time, and it is about time.
One more thing - The Dominionist idea that it is OK to destroy the Earth because Jesus is going to fix it when he returns is pure heresy.
