Christian Right Missing Biblical Command For Earth Stewardship


By James Donahue

November 2005


In his rush to dismantle US environmental laws and allow big industry to exploit and pollute the planet unchecked, Bible thumping President George W. Bush clearly illustrates his ignorance when it comes to the contents of the book he flaunts.


While this writer in no way condones Christianity, he knows what is in the Bible. It contains a commandment by God in Genesis 2:15 to “dress and keep” the garden, which was the Earth as it originally existed.


Some Christian environmental groups are well aware of the commandment to be good stewards of the Earth, and they share our concerns about the reckless way the Bush Administration is turning its back on this key part of man’s covenant.


The Bible teaches that the covenant was between man and an external God-creator looking down from the clouds. As Luciferians, however, we understand the covenant to be an order by our forgotten father, Lucifer, to care for the great Mother Earth from where we came and from whom we receive our daily sustenance for life.


The Christians may argue against the Luciferian concept until dooms day, but the fact remains that from their own “holy” book, they also are bound by the same covenant and they failed to keep it. Consequently, dooms day may be closer than anyone wishes to think.


It is interesting to note that even Christians are beginning to see that something is radically wrong with the extreme right wing cult that appears to have taken over Washington during this administration.


The National Association of Evangelicals, an organization of 45,000 churches representing an estimated 30 million members, is circulating a draft of a policy statement that will urge lawmakers to reinstate laws placing mandatory controls of carbon emissions on industry.


Since taking office five years ago, Mr. Bush has systematically scrapped these controls, either through executive order or by encouraging legislative action. He has used natural disasters like Gulf hurricane damage to push urgent bills through the two houses designed to help oil and gas companies repair their plants and get the carbon-based fuels flowing again at maximum speed.


Bush also has turned his back on the international Kyoto Agreement, forged in Japan, that would require participating nations to force industry to roll back greenhouse gas emissions. Bush argues that the agreement would be unfair to U.S. industry which now competes in a global market because not all countries are participating. China and India are among the larger nations that are not involved in the agreement.


By his actions, and the actions of the elected legislators who are following Bush in lock step, there seems to be a total ignorance in Washington of the Biblical teachings requiring humans to be good stewards of the earth.


“We believe that we have a rightful responsibility for what the Bible itself challenges,” said Richard Cizik, the association’s vice president for governmental affairs. “Working the land and caring for it go hand in hand. We ought to be able to bring to the debate a new voice.”
