Radical environmentalism, at its heart, is false religion. Biblical care for Creation sees God, people, and nature in proper relationship. By contrast, the core of secular environmentalism mirrors Romans 1:25, which says people “exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshipped and served the creature, rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever.” It results in worship of a false god. Even if it’s clothed in “Christian vocabulary,” this unbiblical worldview can lead to:
- Degrading Man—seeing people primarily as polluters and consumers, using up Earth’s resources and poisoning the planet in the process, rather than as producers and stewards, made in the image of God.
- Deifying Nature—portraying nature, in its untouched state, as the ideal. Therefore, it rejects the notion of human improvement and stewardship of nature.
- Disregarding the Poor—No matter how well-intentioned they may be, environmental policies that are not based on sound theology, science, and economics will have their most devastating impact on the people who can afford it the least—the poor, in America and around the world.
