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.
