RE: [greenyes] evangelical Environmental Network


Good morning,

Regarding the comment that, "It is about time Christians took notice of the
atrocities the wealthy have created for the poor.", I would like to
encourage all of us to be cautious and thoughtful about our broad-brushed
statements - a challenging thing to do!

My experience and education have proven to me that members of Christian
denominations, as well as members of other religious groups (and not all
members, true), have been addressing harmful environmental and social issues
for a very long time. They have acted against a wide variety of
environmental degradations and atrocities that have been waged over the
millennia against all of creation. It is not just the wealthy that have
created harm, and it has not just been non-religious peoples who have fought
against the harm. It is good that these issues continue to be addressed by
all groups of peoples and hopefully, someday, there will be lifelong changes
in beliefs and behavior by most people, world-wide, that result in an
increase in the wholesome care-taking of creation.

Very interesting, Peter. What will happen next? We are living in a
fascinating time.

It is about time Christians took notice of the atrocities the wealthy
have created for the poor. I also like the part about the evangelicals
having to overcome credibility issues raised by other enviromental
groups.
