Nowadays there are a lot of people that are “going green”. Some go all out, getting a hybrid car and buying only organic, while others just do a little bit by carpooling and recycling some of what they would throw away. As I’ve read articles and other sources on the subject, I have come to the conclusion that there are a few people that have practically turned this into a religion. Besides the two types I mentioned above, there are a few who go to the absolute extreme by putting the health of the environment over humanity itself. These people believe that it hurts the environment when a new baby is brought into the world, and therefore there should be less children being born. This is a very scary thing to me, because it is absolutely wrong! God made us in His image (Gen. 1:26), and has given us dominion over all living things (Gen. 9:2-3). We do need to take care of this world that the LORD has given us, but we should never put it as a higher priority than taking care of people. If the extremists got their way, most of the earth would be totally off-limits to people, so that we wouldn’t destroy the perfect balance of nature. I am glad to say, though, that there aren’t a whole lot of people that are quite that extreme. As for myself, I will continue to do what I can to keep this world a beautiful place to live in, so that future generations can also enjoy the majesty of God’s creation.
