People really should read the earth charter of Agenda 21. There is nothing in there that Jesus would not have said himself.

Here is a summary:

The Global Situation
An opportunity to change minds and hearts.

Communities are being undermined. The benefits of development are not shared equitably and the gap between rich and poor is widening. Injustice, poverty, ignorance and violent conflict are widespread and the cause of great suffering.

We must decide to live with a sense of universal responsibility, identifying ourselves with the whole Earth community as well as our own local communities. Everyone shares responsibility for the present and the future well-being of the human family and the larger living world. As never before in history, common destiny beacons us to seek a new beginning. This requires a change of mind and heart. It requires a new sense of global interdependence and universal responsibility. Life often involves tensions between important values. This can mean difficult choices. However, we must find ways to harmonize diversity with unity, the exercise of freedom with the common good, short term objectives with long-term goals. Every individual, family, organization, and community has a vital role to play. UN Earth Charter, Agenda 21

Can Christians stand up for the principles that Jesus Christ stood for?

Faith and Deeds

What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.But someone will say, "You have faith; I have deeds." Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do. James 2
