Indian and Christian Parallels–Part 3

Once when Kent Nurbern and Lakota Indian elder Dan were driving through an Indian village, they became engaged inconversation about why it looked so trashy. Why all the junk cars strewn about in yards?

Dan told of how the Indians made use of every part of the buffalo in times past. Cars obviously aren’t buffalo. Automobiles don’t recycle well, and unused parts don’t readily decay.

It can be said the Indians were good stewards of God’s creation. I believe it can also be said that their idea of Earth being our mother reminds us of where Man came from in the first place.

Genesis 2:7–And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Genesis 3:19–In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
