After God created the world and all that is in it, He gave it to mankind to cultivate and guard (Genesis 2:15). God gave us power over all that He made and put us in control of His creation (Genesis 1:26, 28).
Unfortunately, unlike God, we are selfish and tend to misuse both power and control. According to Revelation 11:18, one reason Jesus returns is to address those who have destroyed the earth, His creation. We have a role to play in protecting the earth and all that is in it.
The Interfaith Moral Action on Climate was put together because just as God looks after us, He created the world and gave it to human beings to nurture and look after unselfishly and with kindness, gentleness and love. IMAC is made up of people from many different faiths who are concerned about the the environment and want to prevent further damage to the earth.
You are invited to attend the events being held April 24 in Washington, DC. If you cannot attend you can still participate by holding events where you live and/or work and you can sign the petition at IMAC’s web site: www.interfaithactiononclimatechange.org/ The petition is found under the “Endorsers” tab.
