We are, however, supposed to be ‘in the world but not of the world’. That doesn’t mean that we can, for example, litter and waste because this world is ‘norhing’ to us and our only focus is heaven. In order to ‘get to’ heaven, we need to prepare ourselves here on earth.
So what we do on earth is important.
But it is also more than just ‘material things’.
Not littering or wasting things is common sense and it is not something found “ONLY’ among Democrats, for example.
Since 1973 haven’t we been throwing away preform children and wasting millions of lives? While we are rightly concerned with taking care of ourselves, each other, and God’s creation, haven’t we kept millions from experiencing that care? Do we want to work for justice for everybody?
