Natural Environment & Human Responsibility

We have no liberty to do what we like with our natural environment; it is not ours to treat as we please. "Dominion is not a synonym for "domination," let alone "destruction." Since we hold it in trust, we have to manage it responsibly and productively for the sake of both our own and subsequent generations.

- John W. Stott, Issues Facing Christians Today: New Perspectivfes on Social and Moral Dilemmas (London: Marshall Pickering, 1990), p. 121.
