In this article, I situate anthropogenic climate change in a theological context. Climate change raises, first, the matter of the future of creation and, secondly, the matter of how to understand and affirm the goodness of creation. Further, in theological thought, the goodness of creation cannot be affirmed and fully addressed without, thirdly, some accounting of the goodness of God. In what follows I explore these three issues. The future of creation is discussed in terms of an amnesty bestowed by God. Additionally, some problems with the deployment of amnesty as a theopolitical category are discussed. Next, some of the theological implications of my recommendation of amnesty are explored. For example, what is the relationship between the future of creation and its past; what is the relationship between future and end; what is the relationship between the future of creation and the future of God? Finally, I explore what creaturely resistance is suggested by this appeal to the future as God’s amnesty in a public theological thought.
