Letter to the Editor by Sarah Majewski

To the Editor:

There has been much discussion lately on this page regarding climate change, with appeal to various sources of authority. Yet the ultimate source of authority, the Creator of the universe, has been ignored.

God’s promises in the Bible are 100% true, and God promised that “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.”  (Genesis 8:22)

When God created Adam and Eve, He gave them dominion over the rest of His creation. This means that we have permission to use God’s creation to meet our needs, but also the responsibility to care for it.

We have not always done a good job at caring for our planet responsibly, but we are nowhere near powerful enough to mess up the created world that God designed so perfectly and holds together (Colossians 1:16-17).
