Are You Salt or a Moron?

We read Matthew 5:13 in church this morning:  You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men. I wondered about the word tasteless and what it meant? Thanks to modern technology I soon had my answer. It comes from the root word μωρóσ. Transliterated it is moros from which we get our word moron. Aside from tasteless, the other shades of meaning are foolish, dull or stupid.

So we can be a positive influence in the world around us by making things more savory and acting as a preservative or we can be foolish, dull and stupid and end up being worthless and trampled under the feet of the world.

I think the difference is made by knowing and living what the Bible says.

What do you think? Any examples of "Christian" moron behavior?
