Why Have Christians Not Embraced Environmentalism?

According to Stephen Mattson, contributor for Relevant Magazine and the Burnside Writer's Collective, Christians have failed to protect the environment for mainly 5 reasons: the environmental movement’s political affiliations, evolution, what he calls “the victimless crime syndrome”, our short attention spans and the fact that we view environmentalists as self-righteous and judgmental.

Please visit 5 (Stupid) Reasons Christians Reject Environmentalism :
We are called to be good stewards of God’s Creation but we seem to be failing miserably at it. It’s time we realize that ignoring the perils the planet suffers is to dishonor God and to symbolically throw at His/her face the privilege and responsibility we’ve lovingly been entrusted with. Eating plant-based foods; showing love and compassion to all beings; reusing, recycling and reducing the amount of resources we use; and helping others embrace these choices is what shows true love for God’s Creation.
