Frequently Asked Questions

Q. 1. According to Genesis 19:26, Lot's wife became a pillar of salt when she looked back in disobedience to God. Where is that pillar of salt located? I never heard any reference to its location as a christian attraction.

A. 1. When reading the Holy Bible, you have to realize that four thousands years ago, the manner in which events were reported was often done so in a story style so those whoever heard it, he would remember it. That did not mean that the event actually happened as described. What is important in the reporting of the story is the message that is being given.

In the story of Lot's wife, the message is that she disobeyed God and died as a result of it. Where does the pillar of salt come from? It may be that the location where Lot's wife died had a natural deposit of salt. That particular area could have been known as Lot's wife because of where she died.

What we must learn from the Pillar of Salt is that God does punish those who disobey him. That does not mean that everybody who disobeys God will die. Each receives a punishment according to his sinful actions.
