The Billy Grahm Evangelistic Association took a moment to appreciate the importance of Earth Day for Christians around the world.

"I'm planning to major in environmental science when I start college and I wonder if God really cares about things like this. Does he?" Billy Graham answers this question in a link posted to Twitter on Earth Day.

A student had asked the well known and recently deceased televangelist, Billy Graham, if the environment is something God cares about. Graham's answer, recorded form several years ago in November of 2015 was a call to action for us all.

"After God created Adam, the first human, the Bible says He “took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it” (Genesis 2:15). If we don’t take care of the environment, who will?"  asked Graham.

Graham also said, "When God created the world it was perfect—but then sin, like a deadly sickness, invaded the universe, and with it came every type of evil and natural disaster." Graham added that the world is being damaged every day by peoples selfishness and greed.

"Think of it: someday all the things that are wrong with this world will be reversed!" Graham reminds us that when Jesus returns all will be made right, "Then, the Bible says, “the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay” (Romans 8:21)."

Graham suggests to the student that they ask God to guide them as they choose their major "and if He leads you into this field, ask Him to help you work to make the world a better place, for His glory."
