God is the creator of all. 'God's spirit swept over the face of the waters.' (Genesis 1:2) All of God's creation is good. (Gen 1:31) Jesus Christ lived in harmony with God's creation. 'In Christ all things in nature hang together.' (Colossian 1:16) Humans are created in God's image and likeness (Gen 1:26). This immediately implies the innate dignity of each person. Human beings, endowed with intelligence, must respect the laws of nature, care for and use earth's goods responsibly.
