I was reading through the sermon on the mount today and decided to to look a little deeper at verse 13 because I have always wondered about salt losing it’s saltiness. Anyway, I Googled the phrase, “how does salt lose its saltiness” and came across a website that explained a bit about how this can happen from a scientific perspective. Here is the link. But the most interesting part was the last paragraph. Deneen White writes, “Thereby I assert that the question that the Christian, the Christ follower must ask is not necessarily, ‘How does salt lose its saltiness?’ Rather the question should be, ‘How then can I maintain my saltiness?’”
I agree whole-heartedly!
