Seedbed - Seven Minute Seminary

In this Seven Minute Seminary, Dr. Sandra Richter shares on the topic of Christians and environmentalism, and why the Bible has more to say on the topic than most people think.

With a nudge from our accented British brethren—Wright, Stott, Lewis, and Wesley—America may be waking up to a new creation song. That’s a good thing, because the modern church has too often embraced consumption over stewardship, says John A. Murdock.

In this video, John Walton uses ancient Near Easter evidence to make the case that the creation narratives in Genesis are about function and order, not material origins. Watch to find out how this has a bearing on our interpretation of these events and how this relates to faith and science.

How should we understand Genesis 2 in light of Genesis 1? What are the issues involved? Is Genesis 1 and Genesis 2 portraying the same event? Dr. Sandy Richter leads us in discussion on how to read Genesis 2.

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. As Howard Snyder shares, this means we have works of faith, hope, and love to do.

“Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.” Sounds nice, but how do we find rest in a 24/7 world? Just as the Hebrews were slaves in Egypt, we have become slaves to technology. Our technological tools allow 24-hour productivity and connectivity, give us more control, and subtlety enslave us to busyness itself.

How should we understand Genesis 1-2 in context? What are the issues involved? Dr. Sandy Richter leads us in an introduction to these few chapters that are so foundational to the Christian faith. She argues that the central question for readers of the biblical text should be, “What is this author trying to say?”

“The body, in fact, and only the body, is capable of making visible what is invisible: the spiritual and the divine. It has been created to transfer into the visible reality of the world the mystery hidden from eternity in God, and thus to be a sign of it.”
