Action(s) that Christians should take in regard to the environment and its preservation and restoration
Action(s) that Christians should take in regard to the environment and its preservation and restoration: God created the earth according to the Bible to be inhabited by his creations. Nature is very important living and therefore it needs protection. It is what God wants from human being who he has awarded the gift of knowing what is good and wrong. Nature is a God’s gift to human and therefore all Christians need to embrace the responsibility of protecting it and not destroying. If environment is destroyed, humans and all the living things in it have nowhere to go.
The world today is a concern about the environment due to various human activities that have continued to endanger life on earth. Ecologist, Christians, Muslims sociologists, scientist and people of all kinds of people are concerned that if nothing is done life on earth will be a thing of the past.

Spending most of the time is also a way for Christians to discover more God creations that need protection. The world have been experiencing famine and global warming due deforestation and pollution.
Although some Christian may argue that spreading the gospel is the most important and God purpose for human on earth, Christians also needs to understand that God is concern with the physical world as well. Restoring of surrounding is also a way to spread good news of God (Jewell & Wutich, 2011). It is the duty of man to “tender the garden.” Taking care of God creation is a service to God.
