Evangelical Christians Greener Worldview

There is growing evidence that more evangelical Christians are adopting "creation care" as a lifestyle choice.

"Creation care" is a term used because "it does not annoy conservative Christians for whom the word "environmentalism" connotes liberals, secularists and Democrats."

"Despite wariness toward mainstream environmental groups, a growing number of evangelicals view stewardship of the environment as a responsibility mandated by God in the Bible."

"[This trend has] caught the eye of established environmental organizations. Several are attempting to make alliances with the Christian right on specific issues, such as global warming and the presence of mercury and other dangerous toxins in the blood of newborn children....Even for green activists within the evangelical movement, there are landmines. One faction in the movement, called dispensationalism, argues that the return of Jesus and the end of the world are near, so it is pointless to fret about environmental degradation."
