Default Re: Things that the Bible doesn't say - 05-13-2010, 03:13 AM

Pastor Peters, I do not wish to fawn , but I rather like how you have styled yourself "Biblically Correct". For years I had described myself as "ecologically correct" or "EC" as I put it. Now reading this clear and instructive thread, I would like to ask, is it true that the Bible does NOT tell us to recycle? Of course, I include many other activities besides that.

Permit me to elaborate. Many liberals and liberal "Christians" will cite Bible chapter and verse from Genesis stating that we, the human race, have been given dominion over the earth. This is certainly better than any Native American idea that we are "brothers" with animals an elements of nature such as wind, rain, etc.

Now, some take the position that since we are stewards of the earth we should take care of it and recycle, etc. On the surface that doesn't sound evil at all. But if we know that the purpose of this earth is finite and that God expects us to make the most use of it while we have it, and yet to not count of its provisions forever, but rather His own, why should be recycle, etc?

Oh, sure a little local recycling here and there doesn't seem too troublesome, the real problem is the motivation behind the choice of one's actions and the long term agenda. That's where people start debating, and many use the Bible for speaking points in this debate.

Could you advise, what doesn't the Bible say on this issue -- or what it does? Either way; I'm ready to learn.

Inquistively Yours,

Handmaiden
