Ministers that preach God, the work of the Lord and divinity should also
teach environmental responsibility and respect for fellow humanity. Planet Earth is a community of people
who share a common desire to live with dignity, peace and harmony.
Almost everyone wants to live, values life and wants to gain worthwhile, enriching experiences throughout life.
Equally, working and when people can't work volunteering can give people meaningful activities to do in their life.
If God exists, destroying the environment is likely an act of betrayal in the eyes of the Lord.
So for the love of God people the world over should recycle, walk, go on bikes and communicate
about issues involving the natural world and biodiversity loss. Also, people should love thy neighbour
and treat everyone as they themselves would like to be treated. This is how equality and human dignity can be achieved.
People should embrace Facebook as well as the World Wide Web, and take photos and videos of themselves,
their families and friends enjoying the natural world.
The Serpent in the garden (from a Children's bible in colour)
The most cunning of the beasts which the Lord had made is the serpent, and
the serpent said to the woman: "Did God forbid you to eat the fruit of the trees
of the garden?"
The woman said: "We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden, except the
tree which is in the middle of the garden."
"Of this God said, You shall not eat of it nor touch it, lest you die."
"You will not die," said the serpent. "God knows that the day you eat of the fruit
your eyes shall be opened and you will be like gods, knowing good from evil."
The woman looked at the tree and saw that it was pleasant to the eye and
good for food. She felt it was to be desired because it would make one wise.
So she picked some of the fruit and ate it, and she gave some also to her
husband who was with her, and he ate it.
Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were
naked. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves.
In the cool of the day the Lord walked in the garden. The man and woman
heard the voice of the Lord and hid themselves from his presence, among the
trees of the garden.
The Lord God called to man saying: "Where are you?"
"I have heard your voice in the garden," said man. "I was afraid, because I was
naked, and I hid myself."
The moral of this story is that animals are wise. Fruit is the best thing to eat for
everyone and trees give us shelter and protect us from harm. We need to care
for the environment.
