Dr. Patrick Moore, PhD., says he left Greenpeace in 1986 because they began adopting positions that were not backed by science.
I don’t know if the man is a Christian but he successfully defines the difference between the biblical idea of the stewardship of Creation (or stewardship of the earth) and what has become known today as environmentalism [1:19-2:21].
When the biblical idea of the stewardship of Creation results in the detriment of human life is when it crosses the line into environmentalism. As Christians, I believe we should steer clear of the word and use the biblical term.
Remember, stewardship of Creation is entirely biblical and the result is never to the detriment of human life [Genesis 1:26-31]. Environmentalism elevates the planet and the animals above humanity and the result is always to the detriment of human life.
