Pillar of Salt

30Jan06

The sin of Sodom wasn’t homosexuality, it was worse,
it was false doctrine.  What could be worse than
saying God sent His Son to die on the Cross in vain?

With the whole city practicing good deeds & high moral
standards to justify themselves before God,  it would
be hard to see the wickedness of the city.
Mat 23:27  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees,
hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres,
which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within
full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.

When the angels took Lot, his wife & daughters by the
hands and led them out of the city it was a picture of
the coming rapture of the Church.  Lot’s wife looked
back because she didn’t believe God would destroy such
a beautiful city.  She didn’t look under the good
deeds and see the great wickedness.  
Gal 3:6  Even as Abraham believed God, and it was
accounted to him for righteousness.  To not believe
God can bring the opposite result.  Eze 3:20  Again,
When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness,
and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block
before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given
him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his
righteousness which he hath done shall not be
remembered; but his blood will I require at thine
hand.
   
When a person’s righteousness is forgotten they loose
their salt.  Mat 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.  
That is why is she was “turned into a pillar of salt”.
Actually she perished with Sodom, her salt was left
behind in the form of a pillar.  She lost her
righteousness.  Salt represents righteousness.
