Q: Should Christians take care of the earth?

A: A guest columnist in Scientific American magazine recently wrote the following:

AiG’s biblical literalists, on the other hand, hold that we are God’s favorites. We live at the universe’s center on a planet God made and maintains for us to use. Earth’s resources are here for us to exploit. God protects us and promised he would not destroy Earth again until the end of days. In that scenario, we have little reason to safeguard our existence.

Many secularists claim that Christians don’t bother to take care of the earth. However, the Bible makes clear that man is to care for the earth in Genesis 1:26–28, when God told Adam and Eve to “have dominion” over it. The Bible talks about times and seasons for harvesting and planting (Ecclesiastes 3:2), implying that we must do so responsibly. We are even told in Proverbs 12:10 to treat animals well.

It is true that 2 Peter 3 is a prophecy of how God will destroy the heavens and the earth by fire one day. But in the meantime, Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum teach that man has a responsibility to care for and have dominion over the earth.
