Consequently, since the environment is a foremost aspect of Gods creation it is appropriate to establish the Biblical perspective on creation as a whole and Christians subsequent position and duty to creation. Humankind has been ecologically irresponsible. Greed, inadequate knowledge and negligence have led to exploitation, degradation, and disregard for the natural environment. Unfortunately, there appears to be a deep silence within the Christian Church worldwide as well as in South Africa on believers role and duty towards the natural created environment. Gods redemptive care applies not only to people, but also to the whole of creation. Believers have a duty of care in relation to Gods creation in totality - both humanity and the natural environment. There is a great need for Christian discussion on and improvement in the appropriate use and protection of the environment.
