BIBLICALLY PRINCIPLED SUSTAINABILITY

Isaiah 2:3-5

"Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD."

What is Biblically Principled Sustainability?

If you are looking for a higher standard in regards to your diet or your agricultural practices from a Godly perspective, the modern church will most likely send you to science or medicine for knowledge rather than impart Biblical knowledge on the matter with you.  While we believe the revelation of food immorality birthed our modern organic and sustainable food system, it most certainly has been science and medicine that has fathered it, and now awkwardly mothers it.

Despite the entire modern church age, we believe that God’s Law found in the Old Testament of the Bible is not only a viable source of knowledge and wisdom in all that we do, but an expected standard for all of Christianity to establish and adhere to (Romans 3:31). Although some believe it is impossible to follow any of God’s Law, mostly used to abolished it in a Christian walk (Matthew 5:17-19), we find the half a dozen or so statutes of God’s Law which morally governs food cleanness and production are incredibly more easy to follow then the thousands of statutes written in man’s law which governs food cleanness and production.

Below are all of the major tenants of a moral food lifestyle that we have found in the Bible in regards to diet, production and land stewardship, animal husbandry and work ethic.  Adherence to these tenants is what we call Biblically Principled Sustainability.
