Creation Care

Creation Care

If we continue to destroy the world around us, we will take away opportunities for people to see evidence of who God is.

This three-session course on creation care looks at how respect for the Creator demands that we respect his creation. If we continue to destroy the world around us, we will take away opportunities for people to see evidence of who God is. This study will also look at what responsibility Christians have for God's creation. What is an appropriate biblical concern for the environment? And what should be done to preserve it?

Session One

Respect for the Maker
What does creation tell us about the Creator?
In "The God Who Can't Be Tamed," Philip Yancey challenges us to live like we believe that God uses his creation to point us to himself. He suggests that if we continue to destroy the world around us, we will take away opportunities for people to see evidence of who God is.

Session Two

Our Responsibility as Christians
We need to consider what God would have us do.
Christians not only have a stake in what happens to planet Earth, but their voice on ecological issues is currently being heard by people who have ignored the Christian view in the past. What should Christians say about God's creation? What is an appropriate biblical concern for the environment? And what should be done to preserve it?

Session Three

A Biblical View of Animals
Despite silliness and fanaticism on both sides, the animal-rights debate remains an inherently religious issue.
When a mosquito lands on your arm, do you want to smash it? Or do you respect its life as a creature of God? These questions may seem silly, but many Christian animal-rights activists are demanding that we address this issue: Is every living creature so sacred that as humans we have no right to harm them—much less kill them?
