Matthew 5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

Salt is a preservative.  It keeps food from spoiling so fast and allows it to be stored to be used later.  Salt keeps out the impurities and keeps the bad stuff from getting and ruining the food.
We as Christians should also serve as a preservative in the world.  Satan is throwing everything he can into the world and his goal is to destroy it.  I am saddened and frightened at the amount of worldliness that is being accepted by many Christians.  In today's world we too often hear that we are not to judge others.  That is true when we are talking about salvation. We have no way of knowing who is saved and who is not.  That is something personal between them and God.
We are however supposed to recognize sin and worldliness when we see it and I feel that we are obligated to take a stand without it.  If we fail to take a stand against sin then we are as salt with no preservative quality.  I personally would rather believe what the Bible says about something than believe what popular opinion says.
Are you doing your part to preserve yourself and the Lord's Church from the influence of sin and the world?
