(2 Kings 2:21 KJV) And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren land.This makes no sense to me scientifically, but I am sure there is some explanation.
So the Bible gives salt good press. Our culture gives salt bad press.
I will concede that some people are sensitive to sodium and must avoid salt. We all know people that have their blood pressure spike because of salt, but that is not true of most people. Even the doctors are beginning to admit that they went overboard on their crusade against salt.
So if it is a problem for you, avoid it. That seems common sense to me. Just because some people have a reaction to peanuts or sea food does not mean that the rest of the civilized world must declare them off limits.
What other foods are given good press by the Bible?
