Destroying the environment



As believers, we must see to it that we do not destroy the environment just to see things destroyed, because the environment was made by God and thus must be respected. Woe to those who take pleasure in destroying the earth, for the Scripture says that the hour is coming in which God will destroy “those who destroy the earth” (Revelation 11:18 – NKJV).

Therefore when we are in the countryside and we eat or drink something, we must not throw the plastic bags or the bottles in the grass. Neither must we set the woods on fire, nor throw into the rivers and the sea substances that would destroy fishes and so on.

On the contrary, if we need to destroy certain things of the nature out of necessity (to build a house, or a bridge, or a road) then we are allowed to destroy them.
