The Bible and Environmentalism
“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Genesis 1:28”
Many Christians have looked to this passage to justify their use of the gifts God has left us in and on the Earth. Farming, fishing, mining, oil drilling, hunting, industry, and the like are all examples of human beings making the most of our dominion, converting it into glorious products that help our fellow man. Products like medicine, shelter, and food satisfy the basic needs of mankind, while other products make a life serving God easier and more effective.
