Rick Gerhardt :: Is it possible to protect the environment given population growth?

  • “We, as Christians who have relationship with the Creator, ought to be making personal decisions that lead the way,” says Rick Gerhardt, Biologist and Christian Apologist. “We oughtn’t to be not participating in the local recycling effort simply because we think Jesus is coming back next week.” While some projections about global climate change and population growth may seem dire, we shouldn’t give up hope and assume that the planet is already lost. We also shouldn’t assume, like some Christians do, that an apocalyptic end times or return of Christ will eventually destroy the earth, negating the need to take care of it. “We ought to be thinking more clearly – because of love for the Creator – about the planet and the other living forms that share the planet with us.”
