Is the Church losing its salt?

Salt Shakers

Have you heard of a movement called Christian Reconstructionism? It goes by another name: Theonomy, or Rule by God’s law. It’s a kind of Dominion theology that is not the same as the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) dominionism. Confused yet? We’ll cover what this movement is all about later on.

First, what does it mean that believers are to be “salt?” Jesus used the concepts of salt and light a number of different times to refer to the role of His followers in the world. One example is found in Matthew 5:13: “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.”

We’re going to talk about being salt today, and why many believe the Church can and in fact in some cases has been losing its saltiness.

In our first segment, we’re talking with Richard Lee, a pastor from Spokane Washington who has something in common with Rob Bell: They both received their Master of Divinity degrees from Fuller Theological Seminary! But when you hear what Pastor Lee has to say about his formative years at Fuller, you’re going to get a better understanding of where this seminary has taken a sharp turn off the narrow path of truth.  Pastor Lee is also a radio host of an apologetics ministry called Richard Lee Ministries.

    I believe one of our biggest failures in the professing body of Christ has been to esteem a man as something. In so doing you make God nothing. God warns us against this and we refuse to listen. Jeremiah 10:7 We continue to turn to scholarship instead of God and God's word. 2 Corinthians 10:12 we make ourselves fools and we do not care.

    Why do you think there is so much foolish teaching contrary to the scriptures? Ever wonder why God has allowed this?

    It would seem that God has confounded the so called wise, the learned, the princes of our so called age of reason. An age where men run to and fro seeking after knowledge but looking for it from the lips of man and their books. Ever learning but never coming to a knowledge of the truth. Yet even for those who claim and seem to hold to the truth even these teach Fear of the Lord as a precept from man with no real power or conviction.

    God says we will become just as the idols we seek after. Is it a wonder we live a life of no real power. If we say we have power: where is the conversion, where is the Godly sorrow, where is the weeping over our sins, where is their zealousness for God's name to be vindicated where it has been profaned, where is the obedience that comes from Christ.

    Or is it such a small trite thing that God has done?

      That was a great comment Mr. Davis.

      The only thing I would add is how the Prosperity Gospel of teaching Christians are little gods and to get money. by well known TBN confessing wealth and health preachers are ruined the true Gospel. Jesus addressed churches like this in Revelation chapter three verse seventeen!

    This is Jesus talking to the churches who focus more on money and getting more of this worlds material stuff than him.

    Revelations 3:17
    You say, 'I am rich. I have everything I want. I don't need a thing!' And you don't realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked.
