Abstract

This article discusses factors that have occasioned and precipitated climate change and consequences that resulted from our exploitation and abuse of God’s creation. It is argued that from the theological point of view, wrong interpretation of the Bible led us to the ecological crisis that is threatening all life on the planet earth. Assumptions and misconceptions undergirding creation and the cosmos in general are also discussed. Most importantly, theologies of creation that have been operative for centuries are found wanting and in their place a Trinitarian theology is proposed that will include all the three articles of the Christian Creed. It is believed that this theology that includes the cosmic dimension of salvation will make us relate to creation in a more sensitive manner in that as human beings we are kin to nature in most respects and therefore as natural as nature.
