The Cognitive Dissonance of Social and Climate Justice Within the Bible!

Social Justice and Environmental Stewardship of the Environment are Biblical Principles!

By Carry Smythe (Green Blogger)



Misrepresentation of the Bible is in opposition to the goals of Sustainability and the global health of the ecosystem. One does not have to be religious or to support any religious view to admit that God (according to the Bible) commissions us to rule over the creation in a way that sustains, protects, and enhances his works so that all creation may fulfill the purposes God intended for it. We must manage the environment not simply for our own benefit but for God′s glory.


Mainstream scholars reject the notion that Egypt and the Middle East was a white or black civilization; they maintain that applying modern notions of black or white races to ancient peoples of the Bible is anachronistic (old fashioned). Anachronistic means belonging to a period other than that being portrayed, thus admitting their white portrayal is recent but not accurately portraying the past. Anachronistic race assignations are belonging or appropriate to an earlier period, especially so as to seem conspicuously old-fashioned. Jesus' name in Hebrew was “Yeshua” which translates to English as Joshua. The letter J did not exist at the time of Jesus!
