    Thanks. This is truly an empowering statement:
    .
    “‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.’”…The command to exercise benevolent dominion as stewards of God’s creation remains even after the entrance of sin in the world…”
    .
    I believe we must be careful to exercise this responsibility with humility and prayer lest we be drawn into the erroneous theology of “Christian Dominionism” (Look it up).

    Peace,

    [“Dominionism,” Berlet writes, “is .. a tendency among Protestant Christian evangelicals and fundamentalists that encourages them to not only be active political participants in civic society, but also seek to dominate the political process as part of a mandate from God”…] Ref: http://theocracywatch.org/dominionism.htm
