The Garden Gethsemane was one of two darkest moments of our Lord Jesus' ministry on earth. Most of us are familiar with the story at Calvary where Jesus the Son of God endured the cross for the redemption of mankind.

The threat of unchecked climate change destroying the earth is a scenario that has caused much anxiety. However, the Bible has revealed to us how this world started and how it would end.

Hear about this from Pastor Tiak as he wraps up this series with his final message: All’s Well That Ends Well.
The rise of the environmental movement has raised many questions about our relationship with other animals and how we should treat them. Is it right for us to eat meat? Should we conduct experiments on animals? Should animals be given rights? Should we care about the extinction of species?

Churches seldom teach or talk about environmental concerns because we are concerned about people’s eternal destinies and we want to be obedient to the Great Commission given by Jesus.

That’s why in this message, Pastor Tiak explains why we ought to care about the earth, and how each of us can do our part to make a difference.
