The scriptures state that God has placed eternity in men’s hearts. There is an innate longing for intimate relationship with God in a perfect creation. The lord God formed man from the dust of the earth, and as with all the living things God made, they were made to live on the same planet—in the same environment. That all living things are made from, and exchange, the same basic chemical elements is testimony to God’s creative genius. Mankind was appointed by God as stewards of his creation, but as awesome as nature is we are instructed by God to trust and worship him alone. A biblical worldview not only makes sense of the necessity and complexity of ecology, but provides the only rationale basis for meaningful environmental stewardship. It also reminds us that the only hope for the restoration of our environment rests with its designer—the Ex Nihilo creator God of the Bible.

This illustrated presentation was recorded at the 2018 Australian Creation SuperConference in front of a live audience.
