During a television food show a bread baker demonstrating the ingredients needed for making bread said, “Don’t let your salt and yeast touch…your salt will kill your yeast.” I find the spiritual implication startling. Jesus warned his disciples to be on guard against the yeast (the teaching) of the Pharisees and the Sadducees (Matt 16: 5-12). Jesus also said of his disciples, “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” (Matt 5:13). For me the spiritual connotation is that I can do more than just be on guard against erroneous teaching. If I maintain my saltiness I can actually kill the false teaching of the modern day Pharisees and Sadducee!
