Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

If I said this stuff in church, I think it would get me in trouble.  Listen to this:

"Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty gain?  It is fit neither for the soil nor for the manure pile; it is thrown out.'"
                                              --Luke 14:34,35 TNIV
But what is he talking about?  About people who sign up to follow the ways of God, to be disciples of Jesus, but then just drift away, they get distracted.  Such people are like salt that stops being salt...not even good for a manure pile!  Jesus said it! the way, this Jesus, the real Jesus, didn't just lose his job, it got him killed, by some of the very same people who claimed to love him, claimed to be his disciples, and not too long after shouted, "Crucify him!" are we persevering, how's our salt?
