Although I support the general principle of Holy Stewardship, two things come to mind. First, Christ gave but one commandment to us during his time on earth, to "Love one another as I have loved you". If we were all to follow this most basic principle of love, everything else would fall into place, including the loving care of our planet (you would no sooner crap in your neighbors yard as your own). Second, Man has dwelled on this planet for somewhere between 3,000 and 10,000 years, depending on which side of the evolution argument you stand on, and we all surely agree that the planet is a lot older than that. Mans recent rush to rape and pillage the earth has gone on for a couple of hundred years, and in the long run mother earth will shake our race off of her like a bad case of fleas (if God doesn't do it first!) Our degradation of this beautiful place serves only to poison ourselves, the planet will survive. We need to focus on the long term care and loving concern for the liveliehood of the individual and do away with the corporate greed that pervades this world. It is the single biggest threat to person and planet. We as a nation (and world) are not worthy of our complaining so long as we live in apathy to the ways of the world. Focusing on the ways of God rather than the pursuits of man will put an end to all our problems.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:17
