STEWARDS OF CREATION
STEWARDS OF CREATION
God entrusted us with the care of Creation
God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be
fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and
subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and
over the birds of the sky and over every living
thing that moves on the earth.“(Genesis 1:28)
These words help us to understand that God
invites all of us to join Him as partners in the
work of all care for Creation
God asks us to be Stewards of Creation!
He wants we take care of our Planet
and make sure that all people and the future
generations, share in the goodness of Creation.
STEWARDS OF CREATION
God Made the earth, the air, and the water for all his
creatures to use.
As God’s Stewards is our responsibility to protect all
the resources of the earth from:
Destruction, pollution, noise, or any source of waste.
ADMINISTRATORS OF CREATION
We have the responsibility to prepare a beautiful place
for the next generations
God is calling us in many ways to assist him in his work
He has given us many talents, skills, abilities and much
more gifts. We can use them for the benefit of our
Planet and his creatures.
By carrying our daily acts of stewardship, we make the
Glory of God’s name known throughout all Creation
THE FALL &
Evil and Suffering Enter
the world through
WHAT WENT WRONG?
We see all the beauty describe in the
book of Genesis:
The order of the world,
The diversity of the living creatures,
The glory of the human person, made in
God images and likeness
God is good and all he has done is
very good; Yet, we see around us
great evil and suffering
“We see that something has gone
WHY SO MUCH SUFFERING AND TRAGEDY?
Evil, wars, terrorism, droughts, climate changes, tornados,
hurricanes, poverty, suffering, illness, even in children
Where all those things come from?
The answer can be trace back to what we call The Original
Genesis shows that suffering and sin entered the world when
man disobeyed God.
now all are born without the Grace of God (Holiness).
For the Original Sin, humans are tend to sin, and to do evil.
Humans are subject to ignorance, suffering, and death,
So, Our flesh is subject to our passions, and our knowledge to
THE FALL OF MAN
Our Human nature is Fall. It is fall from the High,
which God has called it.
The world was invade by sin after the Fall
And Sin, It just kept multiplying and multiplying and
get worst, and worst.
We see every kind of sin:
Murder, abortion, lies, terrorism, prostitution,,
corruption, discrimination, injustice, violence,
indiscriminate exploitation of natural resources, etc.
Adam and Eve born with Grace (Original Holiness). They were in friendship
with God, and harmony within themselves, and the world.
It was easier for them to reject sin. They always did what they knew was
right. It was easy for them to control themselves; they never act lead by
their wants and desires.
After they sin and rebel against God, human started suffering some
consequences: Now, it becomes difficult for them to do what is good.
1. Physical and Spiritual death entered the world because of sin.
2. Original Sin affected human beings relationship with the World around them
3. Also this Sin affected Adam and Eve—and Humans—relationship with each other
Harmony turned into disorder: The things are not the way they suppose to
be; The things are not the way God created them to Be.
This DESORDER consequence of sin, is call CONSCUPISCENCE
CONCUPISCENCE is our tendency to Sin.
It is our tendency to do the wrong things.
It is easier to do the wrong things, and
it is difficult to do the good things.
Instead of acting like directing our will,
emotions, and desires, now we move more
easily by our wants
Our tendency to sin or CONCUPISCENCE
increments more, and more every time
that we sin.
Every time we sin, we turn away from God,
and it becomes easier to reject Him.
ORINGINAL SIN: DISOBEDIENCE
& LOST OF GRACE
Original means FIRST—“The first Sin”
It is the Sin by which Adam and Eve, freely choose to disobey, and
By rejecting God, Adam and Eve lost the gift of GRACE.
They reject His friendship,Grace, and the harmony in which they
The Original Sin hurt our human nature
Our human nature is hurt. We born in state of Sin:
We born with our tendency to sin
It is harder to do the good and easier to do the bad things.
Our Will is subdue by our passions and our intellect is subjected by all
THE DEVIL: FATHER OF LIES
What did the Serpent say to EVE?
The serpent told Eve that if they disobey the
commandment of God, they would be like God.
You will not die. For God know that when you eat of it
your eyes will be open and you will be like God, knowing
good and evil.
The serpent lied, she is very astute and canny.
The real True is that God, really wanted Adam and
Eve to become like Him: “Holy”
Indeed that’s why He made them in His images
He wanted them to LOVE and KNOW as He does,
and thus to share in His Divine Live (holiness)
Wanting to be like God, it means wanting to be Holy.
YOU WILL BE LIKE GOD
God is our beloved Father who always wants the
best for us
Satan wants that all humans think that is bad to
depend on God and obey His commandments.
The Serpent deceived Adam and Eve
They did exactly the opposite to become like God.
Because to become like God: (able to love, and
share his life of Grace) we have to obey our loving
God wants us humans to be HOLY.
Is to show us his Love And Goodness, and to
share his Divine Life with us.
“GOD HAS A PLAN FOR US”
THE REASON FOR CREATING THE WORLD:
NOW EACH OF US NEED A SAVIOR
And so what God envision for humanity, it was
not what happen
Things were no longer very good.
Adam and Eve started of a change of events
which cause each and everyone of us to need a
