This course provides a bird's-eye overview of the Genesis Mandate's application to mankind's stewardship of planet Earth, including geophysical environment resources (including timber, oil, water, soil, minerals) and biologically diverse life forms (including fish, shellfish, land mammals) that mankind shares habitats with around the world. Stewardship principles in Scripture (e.g., Deuteronomy 20:19-20; 22:6-7; 23:24-25), as well as both good and bad examples of environmental stewardship (e.g., Psalm 1; Jonah 4:6-10; Luke 13:6-9), are provided from the Old and New Testaments. Special attention is given to mankind's domestication of animals (e.g., bovines, sheep, goats, dogs, carrier pigeons, horses, donkeys, chickens, and even reindeer) as examples of applying the Genesis Mandate to mankind's entrusted assignment of "filling the earth." Some video DVD footage will be used to illustrate how domesticated animals can be taught to serve mankind in ways that comply with biblical standards for how animals should be treated.
