All our good works and self righteousness being sent to the flames
Good question.

In my view the significance of the salt [at least in part] was to teach that the Sacrifice has not only the power to provide remission from sin, but that it also has power to preserve us [to keep us] from corruption and sin.

We do not need to be like the purged dog that returns to it's vomit -- We do not have to return to a sin once we have been purged of it.

I believe that the sacrifice was incomplete without this 'ingredient' (this truth).

Hey Isaiah;

I'd be interested in the resource or reference you are using that define the meanings of the sacrifices and all that goes with them. I have been wanting to study that aspect a little more to learn about the symbolism, but haven't found a real good reference work yet. So what's your secret?
