Recently I was introduced to The Green Bible at a local library. I was amazed and thought it was very inspirational. I personally do not think that The Green Bible is a “New Age” concept. Nothing in The Green Bible has been altered or reinterpreted. In fact, it is what I believe to be just a highlight of revelation of God’s word. Many people take their Bibles and highlight those scriptures or words that become life to them in order to remember where they were. We might say that is exactly what The Green Bible is reflecting on. I myself have never been into the “Green” effort until the last ten years or so. I felt that God was taking me back to the roots of our development and leading me on a journey to understand and nurture it. I learned of the Greek word “auxano”, which is in Ephesians 4:15–16, and means “to grow from within”.
So I began to reflect on things like “living off of the land” and growing vegetables, herbs, and flowers. I began to learn how to garden and I watched my tomato plants that I planted; and it was indeed a seed of “faith”, because I had to trust in God that they would grow. Sure enough, not only did it grow after doing my part to water and pull weeds around it, but the growth was so much that I could not contain it. There were so many tomatoes, I had to give some away. This indeed is his will for us in all that we do. In summary, I do not consider myself to be a worshiper of nature, but a worshiper of God who created the heavens, earth, and everything in it so that I could subdue it.
