A Christian Response to Climate Change

earth_1.jpgAre we responsible for what happens to our planet? Do we have a part to play in creating a more sustainable future for the earth?

Some Christians prefer to ignore the evidence of global warming while for others environmental issues become all consuming. Is there a balance that will let us care for the environment without losing sight of the essentials of faith?

Should we as people of faith be looking at driving smaller cars, using public transport, recycling and becoming more environmentally aware or are green issues taking us off on a tangent, forcing us to take our eye off the ball?

My regular Wednesday morning guest on 98.5 Sonshine FM is Ross Clifford who is the Principal of Morling College in New South Wales and current President of the Baptist Union of Australia. Each week we chat about a range of issues relating to spirituality and belief.

Today we discussed the growing concern among people of faith that we have failed our God given responsibility to be good stewards of the planet. Our desire to consume at rapidly rising levels is having a massive effect on poorer nations who don’t have the resources to respond.
