Seasoned with salt

In Colossians 4:5 Paul tells the church @ Colosse to be wise how they act towards outsiders and make the most of every opportunity. He says our conversation should be seasoned with "salt." Back then salt was used to preserve food and to add flavor. Unfortunately, many of the "christian" leaders in our world don't go by this passage. I was always taught not to say anything if I didn't have something nice to say about someone else. I think this is especially true in public. If followers of Jesus talk bad about everyone in the world, what seeker would want God? This week televanglist Pat Robertson said that the US should kill a leader in South America because he is a dictator and he has extreme Muslim views. Who are we as followers of Jesus to decide this? I may think the same way (I don't though) but I believe those thoughts should be kept private or only with fellow believers as way of bouncing off thoughts. When Roberston got on Worldwide TV (700 Club) and said this, he was speaking for Christians everywhere eventhough many of us don't agree with him. SHUT UP PAT! I personally don't want to see anyone killed because I see everyone as a potential follower of Christ. What if Saddam Hussein became of follower of Jesus? Imagine the impact he could have on the world. I hate it when politics and religion get mixed. I don't see Jesus blessing this union. I love hearing John Maxwell or Joel Osteen speak. When you hear them talk you come back feeling good about yourself. Some call their theology weak, but they talk about God loving us not condemning people. Isn't that what Jesus did? When a woman was caught in adultery and brought to Jesus, the religious men wanted to stone her. Jesus told her to sin no more. When Jesus talked to the prostitute at the well He offered her hope. Rahab was a prostitute and she is in the linage of Jesus. The point is, I believe we all know how bad we really are, we need encouragement and love not condemnation! So let me sprinkle some salt on you now. God loves you and you are important to Him. You are so important to Him that He sent His only son Jesus to die for our sins. Cool! I don't deserve it but I'm grateful anyway. Keep sprinkling that salt on me God!
