Is 2015 When Salt in the Sugar Bowl Becomes Widely Accepted?
By Kellen Davison for IsraeliNewsLive.org
If you have a practical joker as a friend or family member you may been on the opposite end of this bitter prank when wanting to sweeten your coffee. Perhaps you laughed or then thought about putting sugar in their salt shaker to repay them. Apparently the 8th century prophet Isaiah wasn’t too keen on this prank when he wrote:
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20
However, maybe you are in the growing populace of people that have begun to like the taste of salt instead of sugar when it comes to a new beverage of choice called Chrislam. This new movement seeks to bridge Christianity together with Islam saying both religions pray to the same God.
When it comes to this prank maybe it is funny for a moment to some, but when it comes to how one interprets the Bible and worships God greater caution should be exhibited. Perhaps the most noteworthy example in the past year of this type of behavior came from the world’s favorite substitute for Christ, the holder of the office – Vicar of Christ (Vicar meaning instead of) – Pope Francis.
Two major publicity opportunities that he did in 2014 both have to do with Israel. The first came after the “vicar’s” trip to Israel when he held a prayer meeting with Shimon Peres and Abbas. During their prayer for peace meeting at the Vatican, Francis said the following interesting statement which most of the world again praised:
- But to be able to utter this word we have to lift our eyes to heaven and acknowledge one another as children of one Father.

Five months later to the world’s praise again to conclude a year filled with interreligious and ecumenical dialogue, he prayed in a mosque indicating again that his perspective is both parties are praying to the same God.
This movement to say that Jews, Christians, Muslims and other religions are praying to the same God is counter to the Word of God. It is slowly bringing the world together to divide the promised land God gave to the nation of Israel for the sake of religious tolerance and peace.
For God says:
- When the Lord thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land; Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise. Thou shalt not do so unto the Lord thy God: for every abomination to the Lord, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods. What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it. Deuteronomy 12:29-32
- You shall have no other gods before Me. Exodus 20:3
If the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel is the same today, yesterday and forever, when did He make it acceptable for his followers to pray with followers of other gods saying they are the same? Or when did he say His children could pray in the temples of other gods?
When did God clearly communicate to man in His Word that he said salt is now sugar and sugar is now salt?
Perhaps this is why we are starting to see greater tolerance and blurring of lines of Christians and Muslims against Israel living in the land given to them by God all for the sake of peace.
As we just started 2015, it is worth noting there are indications that Francis will call for a world interreligious summit this year. While this proposed meeting of world religious leaders is currently said to focus on climate change, maybe this will also be tied in the name of peace to dividing the land of Israel.
Either way it will be worth watching to see how much integration of religions is made this year in the name of peace.
The world will be in for a bitter surprise if it accepts salt for sugar.
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3
For their rock is not as our Rock – Deuteronomy 12:31
