We Need More Salt, Less Sugar

I’m still dumbfounded by the number of Christians who willingly voted for, and are celebrating in the election of, Biden and Harris.

Right from the start, in the very opening hours of their new administration they showed their evil hand.

New deals will be cut with atheist, Christian-killing China.

Israel’s enemy, Iran, can rebuild its nuclear supply.

Baby-aborting Planned Parenthood is cheering because they will once again be able to receive federal funds (aka tax dollars culled from YOUR paycheck).

All that and your daughter’s school restroom can now be used by boys pretending to be girls.

Where was a large sector of the church during the election season?  Even with the COVID shutdowns you’d think they’d be speaking to their flocks on ZOOM, warning them of the evil scheme’s planned by the democrats.

But no. While some were indeed standing tall, too many—perhaps most—were offering their congregations more sugar.

I prefer churches that preach salt:

  • You’re a sinner (Romans 3:23).
  • If you want eternal life in Heaven, you need a Savior (John 11:25-26).
  • The Savior is exclusively Jesus (John 14:6).
  • You must repent and receive Jesus into your heart, and the Holy Spirit will empower you to follow Him (Acts 2:38).

Those bullet points are preached in churches that serve a gospel seasoned with salt. Throughout  human history you’ll find that salt is essential to life. Salt preserves, disinfects, and enhances taste. Salt is good and has lasting value.

Additionally, I believe the job of a salty church is to instruct its members to walk in godliness and call out societal sin.

Sugar on the other hand has very little (if any) value other than tickling your fancy for a moment, adding useless calories, and jeopardizing your health in the long run.

Sugar is actually a lot like a bad drug.

And what are so many of our churches preaching these days?

Sugar: No sin. No repentance. No laying your life down for Jesus to take it over. No Holy Spirit. No truth. No consequences. No offense. Just say “Yes” to Jesus, think good thoughts, and don’t forget to visit our website! 

“Wow,” the chubby babies in the audience respond. “That was so fun and easy I think I’ll come back next week!”

Not here.

Henceforth, this blog and my podcasts will be totally dedicated to serving you salt, as I aim to “equip the saints to do the work of the ministry” (Ephesians 4:11-12).

Join me as we  grow closer to the Everlasting Father and do His will.

    Thank you for being salt and inviting others to be salt too! I pray that we all heed 2 Corinthians 5:17.
    Blessings Brian!

    2Timothy 4:3-8. A warning and exactly what’s happened, we want to feel saved and we choose what fits our lifestyle…That is not what God said! The fear of the Lord is a must we cannot have a form of godliness, we must be godly. Men of depraved faith are rejected. Seek God on his terms not yours!

    Amen to that! These days have been prophesied for years and years. Some are awake and recognize the signs; alas, some are not. Many have been lulled into thinking “all is well in Zion, yea, Zion prospereth….” Kinda like frogs in the cauldron. Salt is definitely needed now.
