Caring for Creation

I very much appreciated "

I very much appreciated "To Serve and Preserve" (by Ched Myers, March 2004), though I somewhat vary in my belief regarding [humanity] having dominion over the Earth. I firmly believe God gave this gift to [humanity]; however, with the awesome gift comes solemn responsibility. [Humanity] is given dominion but that doesn’t mean we are to pervert the precious creation. All creation was designed in perfect wisdom to work together in harmony as a partnership. As the writer of this article said, we are to take care of the planet, not destroy it.
