what is your opinion?

When Yahshua the Messiah talked of salt what do you think he was talking about? I think he was talking about love and respect since you cannot have one without the other. What do you think? Agree or disagree?Blessings..

  • What lisarose said is correct... when we do this we walk in love as spoken of in 1 Cor 13. and when we speak like this it is healing to a person rather than destroying them.

  • Christians are advised: “Let your utterance be always with graciousness, seasoned with salt, so as to know how you ought to give an answer to each one.” A background knowledge of salt as it was used in symbol in ancient times clarifies the meaning. Salt was offered with the Mosaic sacrifices, since it is a preservative and prevented fermentation. Preventing change by decay, it was used in connection with covenants to indicated the permanence of the agreement. Among ancient peoples it was a sign of friendship to eat salt together. It symbolized perpetual fidelity and loyalty. Hence when the Christian was told to season his answers with salt it meant to use truthful words that would preserve from destruction, that would be loyal and faithful, that would make the answers tasty and appetizing for the listener and work toward his preservation.—Col. 4:6.

  • Wow I did not know anything about that guy. Yahshua is the true name of the Messiah. But I do not look down on others that use the "J" name, because I too came into the faith by that name. Blessings..
