In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"Introduction As a fundamental directive within Scripture, the biblical call for human beings to serve as good stewards of the earth has been considered through various lenses for centuries. On a daily basis, Christians and non-believers alike engage with decision-making in regards to consuming food and resources, both natural and human-made. These decisions affect their own quality of life in addition to the well-being of other people and creatures across the globe as well as the condition of the planet itself. Varying interpretations of Genesis 1:28 have led to an attitude towards consumption that varies from conscientious to exploitive, especially in westernized culture and society."
