Why Christians should support and build beautiful cities and towns

Natural beauty is worth preserving, but it ought to exist alongside developed beauty. Part of our Christian call to steward the land is that we should be able to manage the occasional city or town and make temples and churches (that are beautiful and reflect His Divine Glory). We shouldn’t, as I have seen so vastly many Christians in the last thirty years (and read of over a much longer span of time), fall into the pantheistic error of “nature is cathedral enough!” It’s animistic and not properly ordered Christianity.
