"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
Liz Fields reported with great solemnity that “Despite its purported cleansing properties, holy water could actually be more harmful than healing, according to a new Austrian study on ‘holy’ springs.” Researchers at the Medical University of Vienna found that holy water in the baptismal font could kill your baby: Tests indicated 86 percent of the holy water, commonly used in baptism ceremonies and to wet congregants’ lips, was infected with common bacteria found in fecal matter such as E. coli, enterococci and Campylobacter, which can lead to diarrhea, cramping, abdominal pain, and fever.” Read the entire foolish story: here
I wonder if the unbiased, Liberal soaked minds at ABC, would also conclude that Islam is unhealthy for forcing women to hide behind contaminated berka’s or that beheadings are bad for your health? I don’t see them touching either one of those topics.
My intent here is not to offend any religious person, or in particular Catholics, but . . . . there is no “holy water”, holy days or holy deeds, and I say that as a Christian. At least, not according to the Word of God, which is my only source of a holiness meter. Sunday isn’t holy — just the day that Christians are to attend church, where we’re to be taught the Word of God. Most churches don’t do that any more. It’s become fashionable to have a religious pep rally, not a theological, exegesis study. And they’re missed the point that God doesn’t want us to be ignorant of scripture and doctrine. Still, Sunday is not a ‘holy’ day — nor is Easter or Christmas.
Priests, Popes or pastors cannot make water ‘holy’, any more than they can people holy. They’re not deity, just people. They can’t make Saints or saints either. According to the Bible, all (true) Christians are already saints. [1 Cor 1:2: “To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are sanctified (set apart as or declare holy; consecrate) in Christ Jesus, called to be saints… 2 Cor 1:1, Rom 1:7, Phil 1:1]
Unfortunately there are religions that cling to holy days and holy things by personal dictates of their church leaders — and it is their choice.
The point being, that this appears to be simply another assault on religion by the Elites. Goodness knows, they glorify themselves to the point that there’s little room for anyone or anything else. They, the religiously devoted Liberal who worship at the church of Liberalism, are the end all to themselves, who find the idea of God, silly. This is what Liberalism does to the mind.
They’re compelled to expose how stupid, and dirty, others religious beliefs are, by declaring how dirty ‘holy water’ is. I have some idea of the process this tap water goes through, but the simple fact is: christenings and baptizings used to be done in creeks, rivers and lakes, as was done with the Lord. Most people have managed to survive with no ill effects, in water that was much less sanitary than used by priest or preachers today. As to date, I’ve never read of a child’s death due to dirty ‘holy water’ — but maybe I’m simply uninformed.
It’s much more dangerous to have a mind contaminated with Liberal Theology of ‘self’, than any dirty, holy water. Of that, I’m certain. So I hope anyone wishing to receive “holy water”, or have a child ‘christened’, baptized, will forge ahead. At least until the Barack Hussein Obama regime gets wind of this and mandates new laws of forbiddance. You might think that’s a joke . . . I’m not so sure. Busybody Liberals love enforcement of laws they can and will, exempt themselves from.
