Christians do you care for God's creation?

I came across a great article today:

So many Christians worry about being "kind"
being "holy" and "respectful"
and they forgot about God's creation and animals
Please read the entire article and these quotes:

“Christians and conservatives should contemplate their participation in a food system that undermines their understanding of the reality and nature of our world.”

We Have a Responsibility to Care for Creation


“Christian tradition establishes man’s preeminence of the created order. Formed from the dust of the ground, man’s oldest ancestor was made imago dei. God blessed the universe and its contents, and gave them to man as gifts. As the beneficiaries of these gifts, God instructed man to be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth, and subdue it. He was called to exercise dominion over creation and faithfully steward its fruits.

In light of this dominion mandate found in the book of Genesis, consuming animal products is certainly within man’s prerogative. However, subjugating farm animals to the whims and will of industrial man is an abdication of man’s responsibility to the Creator. The grotesque images found on the factory farm do not reflect faithful stewardship of the created order. These images, instead, reflect selfish domination.”
Remember, there is a Christian Vegetarian Association!
