At least one Christian group is promoting a “greener” Christianity. They have released a Bible made from soy-based fibers and recycled paper. It also has verses and passages highlighted that are believed to speak of God’s love for His creation and remind us of our need to care for it. Appropriately enough, this new Bible is called “The Green Bible.”
Of course, there are those within Christianity (especially more conservative groups) who believe that being “green” is un-Christian. They argue that Christians should be concerned with “saving souls”, not the earth. They argue that our focus should be on the world to come, not this one, which is going to go away.
What are your thoughts? Do you like the idea of a green Bible? Should Christians be concerned about the environment or focused on the world to come?
Update: Please read the comments area for a link to a blog site that is critical of this new Bible and a discussion concerning whether or not Christians should run out and buy it.
