But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless. 14 “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 15 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. Luke chapter 14 34 “Salt is good for seasoning. But if it loses its flavor, how do you make it salty again? 35 Flavorless salt is good neither for the soil nor for the manure pile. It is thrown away. Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand!” Mark chapter 9 49 “For everyone will be tested with fire. 50 Salt is good for seasoning. But if it loses its flavor, how do you make it salty again? You must have the qualities of salt among yourselves and live in peace with each other.” Colossians chapter 4 5 Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. 6 Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.

On this episode Matthew and DJ tackle a topic that keeps popping it's head up in peoples questions: "Political Correctness". You can read the full wikipedia entry on the phrase here. It includes: "Political correctness (adjectivally: politically correct; commonly abbreviated PC) is a term used to describe language, policies, or measures that are intended to avoid offense or disadvantage to members of particular groups in society. In public discourse and the media, the term is generally used as a pejorative with an implication that these policies are excessive or unwarranted. Since the late 1980s, the term has been used to describe a preference for inclusive language and avoidance of language or behavior that can be seen as excluding, marginalizing, or insulting to groups of people disadvantaged or discriminated against, particularly groups defined by ethnicity, sex, or gender." Matthew mentions the book "The Poisonwood Bible" by Barbara Kingsolver. DJ mentions the satarical musical "The Book Of Mormon" by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

We all have them... but what do we do with very strong convictions about events and stories that are happening around us? More importantly, what about a friend or loved one has very different opinons and convictions? Can we love someone who believes in "conspiracy theories"?

Today we are talking about a topic that has rocked a lot of good people. We talk about Ravi Zacharias. The reporting by Christianity Today has been really exhaustive. Ravi's ministry has released a very honest and complete statement. Christian leaders respond to Ravi here. We also talk about Hillsong New York Pop Pastor Carl Lentz. His sexual sin and fall from ministry. Carl was always controversial and popular with the world. This is a very honest discussion about how do we respond when people like this fall away.
