Are You Theocentric?

Christians who approach the Bible anthropocentrically put humans at the center of their views. They will reject everything in the Bible that is not in the best interest of a human being (i.e. slavery, polygamy, racism, genocide etc). This can be a good thing for us humans, but it is not good for the rest of creation. Anthropocentricism tends to ignore the best interest of the rest of creation (the animals and the earth). Christians who care about God's animals will approach the Bible theocentrically, putting God at the center. They view God as the central interest and ultimate concern. God becomes the center of their Scriptureview, and their worldview. Theocentric Christians will reject everything in Scripture that does not favor a human or an animal's highest good. Theocentric Christians value humans, animals and the earth because they believe God is love and that God values all of His creation. So, are you a theocentric Christian? Do you believe that God loves ALL His creatures? Do you consider the best interest of all of God's creatures when you read Scripture? Do you believe that God wants you to care for His animals and His earth?
