As a Christian, I do understand my role and responsibility to steward the planet. I take that responsibility seriously. I am concerned about the condition of our world and more importantly, the people who live here. I know, however, it’s the supernatural transformation of individual lives (as a result of hearing the Gospel and being filled with the Holy Spirit) that eventually changes the nature of each culture and (ultimately) the condition of our planet. The Biblical claims related to salvation are people-focused claims; individuals are the focus of God’s redemptive work. Our broken relationship is not with our environment or with one another; it’s with our Creator. As we address the real dilemma, all the other ancillary problems will resolve themselves as we come to understand and embrace the purposes of God. —J Warner Wallace (from, Why Christians Must Continue to Guard the Truth of the Gospel)
