“We are the salt of the earth. The salt is the preservative. It preserves the meat from decay and ruination and allows the meat to retain its purity and its character. Salt is a preservative. The Christian is supposed to be the salt of the earth; the preservative of society. The preservatives of truth and right and good, etc. We have a lot of churches today talk a lot about the light, and that’s great. Thank God for that. Thank God for the fact that they want to be light, they want to give the Gospel, they want to share the Good News. That is terrific. But that’s only half of it. The other half is being salt, and that is the part of our responsibility that most pastors in churches are not willing to accept.”
“The salt means you have to stand up against decay. You have to stand up against ruination. It means you have got to take a stand in your pulpit, in your community, in your state, in your country, against the things that are wrong and for the things that are right. And if you are not doing that, you are not doing the work that God has called you to do. Christians and pastors need to be the salt as well as the light.” Chuck Baldwin.
