Our Duty

The book of Genesis Chapter 1

"26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth."

God created man in his own image.  He then gave instructions on what he wanted man to do in this world.  He wanted man to be fruitful and multiply.  He set the pattern for a Biblical and Godly way of life.  One man and one woman together, not two people of the same sex.

He wanted man to have dominion over every living thing on the earth.  It is our duty to care for the earth.  It is also our duty to use the earth.  It is our duty to manage our resources.  We need to raise crops without destroying the environment, and use animal resources without causing them to become extinct.  We need to remember that; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
