13 “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet. 14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that[a] they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:13-16 I have been recently studying this passage. I was wondering if salt and light are meant to be two seperate anolagies for the same concept or are the two meant to be two concepts. Salt is the churches doctrine and at the core the gospel, spoken truth. Light could be the aspect of the church that people see and visualize which is our love, treatment of one another. In essence its looking at the sides of the same coin namely Orthodoxy/Salt and Orthopraxy/Light. Am I completely off basis with this?
