We Do Confuse Things
Earth Day won’t save usHer thesis:
Living greenly and caring for the environment are good, moral things to do. It is irresponsible and sinful for us to pretend that this world doesn’t matter.There are places where I disagree with Allison, specifically about what constitutes "living greenly, but I do not want to have that debate at the moment. - She gets the bottom line and that's what's important.
But it is also sinful to believe that my efforts, or the efforts of collective humanity, are the answer to the creation’s ills.
God cannot save the world until we are all saved and sanctified enough to get out of His way. We tend to confuse those things - thinking that if the world is saved we will be. That's the real meaning of the dominion God gave us over the earth - we have to be saved first.
So, "work out your salvation with fear and trembling."
