There is more behind what has been designated today as Earth Day (April 22) than planting trees, reducing pollution, and conserving natural resources. Of course, a lot of what is promoted on this day certainly sounds admirable. Furthermore, Christians are to be good stewards in caring for the earth (Genesis 1:28). But there is a lot more to Earth Day than meets the eye.
For instance, at some Earth Day celebrations, you will find New Age crystals for people to 'channel' through, and material can be found on how to worship 'Mother Earth.' For many people, this day is really a religious service for the New Age movement (and it’s often based on evolutionary thinking). While we may be responsible for caring for the earth, we are not to worship it but to use it for man’s good—and to God’s glory.
The founder of Earth Day, Gaylord Nelson, believed: 'The fate of the living planet is the most important issue facing mankind.'1 In reality, the most important issue facing mankind is that everybody needs to recognize their sin and need for salvation in Jesus Christ.
