Quote of the Week

"...scripture speaks of conduct of business ... as a corollary of the cultural mandate which posits a good creation, once corrupted by sin and Satan, now partially redeemed, and into which God calls his people to serve. This means that business is a legitimate part of undertaking the stewardship of creation to make a human imprint on the earth."

> to make a human imprint on the earth

Such a large imprint as to destroy the environment, which is what we are doing at a staggering pace?

Maalie - the point of the quote is to draw attention to the fact that business has a higher calling than to simply make a profit. Aimlessly destroying the environment isn't part of this calling.
