In ancient society, as well as today, salt was used for preserving food. This is the function Jesus likely had in mind for believers. The Lord intends for all who take Him seriously to function in the world as "gospel salt," preserving the world from the moral decay that threatens it. o,,,=:o ....... ,, Weekly Bible Trivia Why did Chrtst cunm the fig tree?
