God and the environment - revisited

Andrew Wetzler of the Natural Resources Defense Council in the US has just posted a blog entry about religion and the environment. I wrote a comment to it, which you'll see at the bottom of the entry. It's interesting how some people seem to dismiss religion and/or the Word of God as having any relevance to the topic -- and yet, the most basic commandment God gave us was to take care of His creation.

It's interesting, too, how many churches don't want to hear about it -- or at least, don't want to go into depth about what God's Word says. I've had a hard time figuring out why that is. Offers to share the message of the book are met with stony silence from most churches and one outright rejection letter from one in Seattle; mind you, Westpointe and Victoria Seventh-Day Adventist have had presentations, and Oakridge SDA in Vancouver is considering it, too. Probably God considers this to be a message for the long run, and not a flash-in-the-pan, flavour-of-the-week religious fad.
