Up Close and Salt

The Point

Up Close and Salt

Christians are finally getting a dose of their own pharmacy. Jesus taught us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. God commanded Israel: Don’t judge another man’s servant.

Yet, for decades, Christians criticized non-Christians for not exercising Christian values. Now, non-Christians are judging Christians by non-Christian standards.

Jesus’s concept of “Salt and Light” is entirely different and preferable compared to all of this.

Salt mingles with the food—up close and personal. Light shines and does not hide. Christians, however, acted as “batons and handcuffs” with people they couldn’t convert because they weren’t close enough to make a difference.
