The land reacts

Man has hurt the land in more ways than most realize, for while we often speak of natural pollution, that is, what factories spew out, cars, and so on, yet, listen to the Lord warn Israel why they should not commit the sins of the Canaanites,

“For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants” (Leviticus 18:25).

The earth does not like the vile passions, idolatry, and other sins that are committed on its back, and eventually it reacts, vomiting out of the land those who engage in such wickedness.

The earth still groans over man’s spiritual defilement (Romans 8:19–22), and so if you want to help the earth, repent of sin and living righteously.
