Carefully Plunder

We now have the knowledge, tools, and raw materials at our disposal to enhance the earth’s fruitfulness in ways which could never have been achieved before. The Church must seize the opportunity that the contemporary circumstances present to us and boldly set out to transform the earth, continuing where righteous Adam, before his fall into sin, left off. That the West presently enjoys the degree of culturative success it now has is due to the biblical principles once celebrated by earlier generations and embedded in our cultural fabric…. Within such a context, “plundering” the plethora of works we find all around us is tricky business. With extreme care, though, believers may appropriate many of these artifacts and use them for godly ends.
