I want to get some opinions -
Before getting to my question, let me explain. I love my "earthly home -" I don't litter, I recycle, I try to keep my garbage to a minimum, and I try not to waste. This is an obligation for every human being.
However, lately, it has started to frustrate me when I see and hear people talk about being eco-friendly and the ways they do so. To me, they act and sound as if the earth is "God." To me, their acts of bringing their own bags, or using a jar instead of a plastic bottle, or reusing whatever, it's as if they think that they are really "saving themselves." It's as if they think that the Earth is God. Has anyone seen it in this manner?
I feel also, that the people who are the most 'eco-friendly' are the least religious and very godless. They are not focused on the soul, moreso focused on the body. It seems to me that they think, by doing what they're doing, they will be 'saved.' Anyone see it this way?
I am not saying that we should NOT look after our earthly home, but this home is only temparary. Sin is what is destroying the earth - not my plastic bags. I think a person who is the most eco-friendliest type and hardly religious is not a good example of how one should be. Thoughts?
