OK... I understand why Lot's wife should not have looked back at Sodom but can anyone help me see if there is some spiritual signifigance to her specifically turning into a PILLAR OF SALT??    :-k

Thanks everyone!

yes i've heard of a spiritual side to the story.

the idea was that people would abandon their ways that were not right in the eyes of god like pagan religions,theft,ect. and never turn back such as we are not suppose to go back to the chuch after we leave it and the moral of what she did was that she turned back toward the evil city of sodom and thus payed for it.

Now for turning to salt i'm not really sure that holds any spirtual reference but i'll look and tell you if i find something

i couldn't find anything to important about salt but here's what i could find.


Several questions are proposed concerning Lot's wife being changed into a pillar of salt. Some suggest that being surprised and suffocated with fire and smoke, she remained in place, as immovable as a rock of salt.

Others say that a column or monument of salt stone was erected on her grave, or that she was stifled in the flame and became a monument of salt to posterity; that is, a permanent and durable monument of her impudence

Finally, a literal interpretation is that she was suddenly petrified and changed into a statue of rock salt, which is a soft rock or a halite.

The alleged name of Lot's wife is Edith.

Luk 9:62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.


Luk 9:51 And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,


Jhn 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
