Biblical Christians know every day is Earth Day. We know this because the Word tells us the whole earth is full of the glory of the Lord (Isa. 6:3). And we’re 100% certain that “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:9). But these facts are little known and little acknowledged in our world today.
