Have You Ever Wondered Why someone not doing his job
is said to be "not worth his salt"?
At one time soldiers in ancient Rome were paid, in part,
with a ration of salt called a solarium, from the Latin word
sal (which means salt). If a soldier's performance was not up to
standard, that soldier was said to be "not worth his salt."
Later, when salt was replaced with an actual money allowance
to buy the salt, the allowance itself was called a solarium.
Eventually, solarium came to mean the wages themselves,
and this led to our calling one's pay a salary.
= the house provided by a church for its pastor
~~~Bishop Harry Jackson:
No preacher worth his salt who is born in a traditional evangelical church system in this generation would ever say, alright, just do what want with marriage.
First of all, he’d lose the paycheck, Second, he’d lose the parsonage, and ultimately he’d lose the pension.
According to that statement, the literal job of a pastor/preacher, is to protect their money, their house, and their retirement - AND TO DO SO BY BEING ANTI-GAY.
These are the three "Christian" concerns of Bishop Jackson when it comes to saying "just do what you want with marriage."
Money, money, and money.
