Question Answer
What is meant by stewardship The duty to care for ALL creation for the next generations
Why is Stewardship a Catholic Social Teaching prinicple? (why is a something Catholics should be concerned about?) > It is a duty for Christians because it is a theological truth revealed in the creation stories in Genesis. >Fill the earth and govern it - rule over every living creature' means to have responsibility for them >Take care of it and cultivate it ' is a command of stewardship >Humans have this additional responsibility as they are imago dei
What letter (encyclical) did Pope Francis write about caring for the earth 'Laudato si- care for our common home.'
What does Pope Francis teach in Laudato Si - care for our common home'? >The earth belongs to everyone - not just the powerful >we must stop hurting the earth and taking it for granted > The poor suffer the most in all things > Technology can also pollute - getting in the way of real relationship >we need to work togther- we need a common plan for our common home >We need an ecological conversion of heart.'
What do fundamental Christians believe about stewardship? >The Bible is the literal word of God > Most Fundamental Christians see the command in Genesis as caring for the earth >Stewardship is a divine command' >some take 'have dominion over' to mean 'have power' and argue that we can do what we like to benefit ourselves
What are humanist views on Stewardship? >very similar to Christian ideas >The conclusions and actions are the same >the motivation is different > The motivation is that it is best for the rest of humanity - now and in the future > Not because of a divine command but because we should do it
What are some different interpretations on the 'have dominion over the earth' > Catholic and Liberal Christians interpret 'dominion' to mean 'responsibility - we have rights but along with that is responsibility (link CST) > SOME fundamental Christians read it to mean ultimate power and therefore we can act as we want if it benefits humans as the high point of creation
