I had a question raised to me at church and wanted to get your thoughts. Is it a sin if you are not recycling? We have people in our church who are big on recycling. Even to go as far as to say that if we are not recycling, then we are not being good stewards of the Earth and that we are sinning. For instance, through trash on the ground is wrong. It needs to go in the trash can. We all agree about that. But the question is about not taking plastics, papers, etc to the recycling center. We just throw those things away. I don't know of anything in scripture where it is mandated to recycle. Does anyone know of scripture that supports recycling? I want to give them a clear biblical answer. My personal opinion is this is a personal choice. If the person is throwing everything away and not taking stuff to the recycling center, then that is okay. That is between them and the Lord. If it is a city ordinance to have recycling pickup days, then we should follow the laws of the land. Thanks for your views on this matter.
