Evangelicals turn towards environmentalism
SEATTLE - Thanks to the Rev. Leroy Hedman, the parishioners at Georgetown Gospel Chapel take their baptismal waters cold. The preacher has unplugged the electricity-guzzling heater in the immersion baptism tank behind his pulpit. He has also installed energy-saving fluorescent light bulbs throughout the church and has placed water barrels beneath its gutter pipes - using runoff to irrigate the congregation's all-organic gardens.

Such "creation care" should be at the heart of evangelical life, Hedman says, along with condemning abortion, protecting family and loving Jesus. He uses the term "creation care" because, he says, it does not annoy conservative Christians for whom the word "environmentalism" connotes liberals, secularists and Democrats.

"It's amazing to me that evangelicals haven't gone quicker for the green," Hedman said. "But as creation care spreads, evangelicals will demand different ...

I once knew a guy who cut his car
engine every time he stopped at a
red light...to save gas (!).

I knew another guy who had his
garage and car perpetually full
of separated recylables, which
you could smell even before entering
the garage!

Finally, my brother fell away from
the faith of his childhood largely
due to a then new-found appreciation
for environmentalism and nature, which,
eventually supplanted his interest in
the Lord.

Needless to say, I'm NOT very impressed
by so-called "environmentalism" and its
adherents...but this is largely based
on my personal observations.

SURE. Love the environment. Just
make sure you love God MORE!

Now, I agree with this Rev. Leroy Hedman on conserving and being good stewards of what God has given. Now, that church can give more to other ministries and to missions.

Good points Neil. It should be approached with caution since I know a lot of folks are in this just for political propaganda and self-glorification.

msc, I agree. I just caution that Christians should not formally support questionable political solutions for an otherwise worthy cause. As an alternative to EPA bureaucracy, state or local regulation might be more appropriate.

"The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof."
God also commands replenishing the earth and warns of destruction to those who destroy it.
It's only common sense to take care of God's creation (unless you just love trash in your yard, breathing carbon monoxide, benzene and other carcinogens, particulate matter, etc). It also saves money. Sorry, Greeter. I have to disagree with you. One can be an "environmentalist" without being a worshipper of the earth.

This is another example of the "church" following the world.
Satan has decieved these people into thinking that the creation is the creator and needs to be treated with the respect and sanctity originally intended for The Lord.
It is nonsense to think that man can end man outside the will of God. I have heard the fearmongering of eco-feminist, wicans, vegans, evolutionists, anti-globalisation freaks, homo-facists, and a whole slew of animal rights activists over the last 25 years. First the earth is warming, then its cooling, then the ozone is failing, then too much or too little precipitation, and on and on. When the exon valdese sank they claimed the end ot the Alaskan coast, when the Iraqi's spilled and burned oil they claimed it would take decades to reverse.
The largest enviromental "disaters" are natural (volcanos, tsunamis, forest fires, hurricans, etc).
Let us concern ourselves with the pollution of our souls and the unlivable enviroment of hell.
2 Peter 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

Sounds good to me. It's the view I generally have...you can be a conservative Christian and put wise convervatism to practice. Hey, it sounds more biblical...unheated baptismal water...do ya think the Apostles had a GE heater keeping those waters comfortable...I seeeeeerrrioussly doubt it. Talk about primitive Christianity.

So far so good, until this statement later in the article: "government has an obligation to protect its citizens from the effects of environmental degradation." And where do they discover a Scriptural principle for statist solutions to this problem?

Following their logic, gov't should also protect its citizens from heresy, which is far worse in its effects than pollution (i.e., spiritual murder). At least Scripture prescibes punishment for witches & false prophets, whereas polluters seem to be exempted.

Not every problem requires Congressional action.
