Media @ New Hope CalgaryToday we complete our series entitled, ‘The Theology
of Oil,’ by looking at the important question of resource stewardship

“God spoke: "Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature, so they can be responsible for the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the cattle, and, yes, Earth itself, and every
animal that moves on the face of Earth.”
Genesis 1:26

“As theologian Calvin Beisner explains, the Cornwall Declaration describes human beings not merely as consumers and polluters but also as producers and stewards. It challenges the popular assumption that “nature knows best,” or that “the earth, untouched by human hands is the ideal.” And it calls for thoughtful people to distinguish environmental concerns that “are well founded and
serious,” from others that “are without foundation or greatly exaggerated.” In other words, it calls for a reasoned, humane environmental ethic. At a time when mistaken policies based on anti-human assumptions can lead to the deaths of millions of people, such an ethic cannot come soon enough.”
Jay W. Richards is director of institutional relations at the Acton Institute.

“For God makes all the decisions here. God is our king.
God runs this place and he'll keep us safe.”
Isaiah 33:22
