An Orthodox View of the Ecological Crisis
6. The Three-dimensional Consequences of Μan's Salvation.
Μan's original sin against God has had ecological consequences. Contrariwise, man's salvation through God's incarnation in Christ changed man's attitude towards nature. The ecological crisis shows that man's salvation has to be expressed and fulfilled in conscious faith, in proper worship, in Christian ethics, but also in right-doing towards nature. We have to remember that the natural world is the manifestation of God's power and love for us. We have to respond properly, respecting God's creative work as part of our adoration to the triune God.
