Francis Schaeffer, Pollution and the Death of Man, on the subject of dominion -
Here, in this present life, it is possible for the Christians to have some share, through sciences and the arts, in returning nature to its proper place.
But how is this to be achieved? First, as we have seen, by the emphasis upon creation. Then, second, by a fresh understanding of man's "dominion" over nature (Genesis 1:28). Man has dominion over the "lower" orders of creation, but he is not sovereign over them. Only God is the Sovereign Lord, and the lower orders are to be used with this truth in mind. Man is not using his own possessions.
