Mission of God Conference CANADA:

Climate and the Cultural Crisis

Saturday, December 10, 2022 | Windsor, Ontario

How should Christians think about the role of human government and the recent efforts at the total control of people’s lives by the state? Is there a relationship between the Covid-related measures, and the broader issues of climate policy and social control? How are our present circumstances similar to–and different from–historic world crises? What are the social, spiritual, legal, economic and health implications? And what is a biblical response?

The social, economic and political crises of these last few years has spread division through all areas of society, and the church has been no exception. When mankind sinned, the earth was cursed, bringing struggle, disease, and death into the world. In spite of this, the Lord commanded mankind to fill and subdue the earth, turning the raw material of creation into a God-glorifying culture. How do we faithfully apply this command in our current crisis of the West with its love of decline and death rather than life?
