Matthew 5:13 - 5:16: Salt and Light

Sermon on the Mount
Sermon on the MountSteve Gregg

Steve Gregg discusses the concepts of salt and light as mentioned in Matthew 5:13-16. He explains that salt and light have particular impacts, effects, and influences on something or someone. Gregg highlights that Christians need to live according to biblical patterns and principles, even if it goes against cultural norms, and even if it brings persecution. He argues that unless there is a revival of Christianity, there is no possibility of saving America from total destruction due to the decay and rotting of society, despite the presence of many Christians.
