Taking Care of The Environment

The following is a quote from the book "Adventures in Missing The Point" by Brian McLaren and Tony Campolo. Tony Campolo writes,

"Christians have let new agers hijack the environmentalist movement and make it their own domain. Environmentalism should be a Christian concern.

The two biggest reasons why Christians should make environmentalism a high priority, however, are that Christian stewardship requires it, and that the descruction of the earth's natural beauty impacts the worship of God." P. 187

If you promote environmentally friendly products you are doing an important task. Something that I am sure God is happy with.
