Massive Evangelical Organization Says Christianity Demands Climate Action


In a recent 50-page report, a major evangelical organization says that Christianity demands climate action. The report was a call to action for a group that generally considered climate change not to be a threat.

The National Association of Evangelicals (NEA) released the report this week titled “Loving the Least of These” to address the strong scientific evidence of the everpresent climate change and the role that greenhouse gas emissions have played in it. The report also examines and debunks common arguments that are associated with climate change.

The report also addresses the issue from the theological standpoint and outlines actual biblical arguments that say we need to fight for the environment.

“The earth brings glory to God, and God continues to care for and sustain the natural processes of the world. The psalmist says: ‘Praise the LORD, all his works everywhere in his dominion. Praise the LORD, my soul’ (Psalm 103:22). Because God’s glory is revealed in creation, we should be intentional about caring for his artistry,” the report states.

It is not the first time that NAE has acknowledged climate change. The organization that represents 45,000 evangelical churches also published a 2011 edition of the same report. Unfortunately, the evangelicals are much less likely to consider climate change an actual issue than other denominations like Protestants and Catholics.

A poll by Pew Research this year found that just over half of white evangelicals acknowledged the role of human activity in climate change compared to 6 percent of Hispanic Catholics, 81 percent of Black Protestants, 73 percent of white Catholics, and 72 percent of white nonevangelicals.

The United Nation recently released a report warning countries about the dangers of climate change and has urged people to eat more plant-based as a way to curb it.
