About this Event

Where Garden Meets Wilderness

A Biblical Response to Environmentalism

May – or must – a Christian be an environmentalist? How should Christians respond to the claims of climate crusaders and the increasing pressure to join the climate fight?

When God considered the world He created, He saw that “it was very good.” And He commanded mankind to fill and subdue the earth, turning the raw material of creation into a God-glorifying culture. How do we faithfully apply this command?

Christians in the West tend to fall into two different errors regarding creation care. The first has been to neglect our responsibility and take an attitude of apathy or even antagonism towards environmental concerns. This response is usually an over-correction of the second error, that of environmental idolatry, which regards creation itself as the highest good, to be protected and preserved at any cost – including human life.

On Saturday June 6, 2020, join Dr. Calvin Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance, and Rev. Dr. Joe Boot of the Ezra Institute as we pursue a God-honouring answer to these questions, and explore the Christian's environmental task and privilege.
