Salt Of The Earth And Temple Of God

A recent sermon by our pastor made me realize that I didn't know where salt came from or how it was processed and that such information would be vital to my understanding of the scriptures and who and what I am. I really didn't even know what salt was. I read several articles about salt and discovered, much to my surprise, that basically all commercially available salt is sea salt. It either comes from recent deposits or from old deposits. Table salt is refined or processed sea salt. White salt is refined or processed sea salt. Refined or processed salt is sea salt with the vast majority of its minerals removed. Unrefined or unprocessed salt is coloured because of its mineral content.
