Chris­tian con­ser­va­tion

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Your Feedback - Paul Stam­per, Liver­pool

The is­sue Bill Oddie ap­pears to have with Chris­tian­ity (Wild At Heart, De­cem­ber 2014) is that it el­e­vates hu­mans to a level of power over other living things so that we can do as we please with them. While I be­lieve God made us of greater im­por­tance than the rest of cre­ation, He also ap­pointed us as ste­wards over it. Adam even acted as the first tax­onomist! But we re­jected God, and that’s why we find our­selves in the mess we’re now in. The prob­lem is not the or­di­nance es­tab­lished by God, but our abuse of this power.
