    I think, according to the whole idea of who we are in Jesus, our fingers, indeed our whole bodies, minds, souls & spirits are “holy”, so no additional blessings or incantations are needed

    There is something wrong when this was allowed to take an anti RCC direction.

    Now can’t you see how bad they are? Not only do they steal you money, but they dress like the RCC and do their rituals.

    Throckmorton should have stuck to the story.

    MLD,

    You’re missing the point.
    This isn’t anti RCC or sacramentalism.
    It’s about how this group has misrepresented itself in order to gather money.

    I’m a high church Anglican at heart…

    We will see how his commenters play out. Right now there is a lot of catholic mocking going on.

    When I saw this the question I have is, what makes it holy water?

    In the bible there’s living water, besides Jesus calling Himself such, there is a reason and methodology behind what living water is.

    From holy water to oil, how do they choose which oil is holy for anointing purposes? Can one use the cheap stuff or does it have to be extra virgin olive oil from the ” holy lands?”

  9. God’s word added to the water is what makes it Holy Water. This is the case in baptism – no one says the water by itself is anything other than water – but add God’s word to it – well, Voila! Holy Water.

    Hey hey, look at all the evangelicals who run to the Jordan to get baptized there as if that is special. LOL

  10. Em says:

    #9-nope, that’s wrong … i have it from the lips of a RC priest that holy water is tap water that you’ve boiled the hell out of

    baptism in the Jordan? if it was good enough for Jesus, it’s good enough for me 🙂

  11. “#9-nope, that’s wrong …”
    Narrow minded people who are not open to the opinions of others.

    However holy water is just plain tap water – mixed with the word of God. But since several hear have expressed that “real” baptism is the dehydrated version – that is understandable and since several of the same do not believe God uses physical elements for any worthy venture, the whole discussion is moot.

    But hey, we are just a bunch of people just floating through space.

    I’ve always wondered why people did that, when they were already baptized.

    ———————————————————
    I have not once seen anyone (including me and I am one of the chief proponents) use the qualifier “real” baptism…not once…not one person…and certainly not several.

    Continually misrepresenting those who disagree with you might be a sign of the weakness of your own argument. 🙂

    We do say that Spirit baptism should precede water…and that Spirit baptism is the mark of salvation (again, before water). However, that does not make water baptism any less “real” – it is different.

    We have a Spiritual birth and a physical birth. The physical birth is hardly not “real” – but one can have the physical birth and never have the Spiritual birth. Just like one can have the water baptism and never have the Spiritual baptism

  14. Bible says there is only one baptism we share. Which is it water or spirit.
    I do not separate the 2 you are baptized with water and the spirit. Just getting in water doesn’t do it.

    Being baptized in water in the name of the Father, the name of the Son and the name of the Holy Spirit – one baptism is what does it.

  15. And you can’t say that you haven’t expressed that the spirit baptism isn’t the “real” one. Your claim is that you must have spirit baptism to be saves and although you don’t come out and say it, but you do believe that water baptism is optional in that if you choose not to be water baptized you have not lost anything.

    But this should not be about baptism here – it was about whether or not water can be made holy water.

    well then, let me try again… the R.C. Priest told me how to make holy water… who am i supposed to believe here a Lutheran or Rome? lol

    i’ll stick with the Reverend Right … err, Wright … on this one, if i am being taken literal (ly) today

  17. Bob says:

    I agree that “holy water” can be just about any drinkable water including tap. I think MLD is making a subtle reference to being “washed by the word” from the text and not baptism.

    My question was what makes water, the liquid type, holy or set apart from any other water? There’s no biblical reference to show such an idea.

    The water in the desert was purified, made drinkable, by throwing something in it. So was it the something thrown in, the action of obedience, or something else that made it drinkable?

  18. Em says:

    “The water in the desert was purified, made drinkable, by throwing something in it. So was it the something thrown in, the action of obedience, or something else that made it drinkable?”

    obedience? by Faith?

  19. Bob says:

    Em

    Could faith be nothing more than a mist of idle thoughts until it’s tested by being obedient?

    Hmmmm ……

    Faith works

    Hmmmmm…….

  20. ???? faith is given to you by God – how could it be anything but complete and good?

  21. Bob says:

    MLD

    Who said faith wasn’t good and by your comment it appears you don’t understand the purpose for have faith tested (something clearly mentioned in the scriptures).

    Someone did say no works means no, as in dead, faith.

    But we’ve been down this path before, haven’t we!

    Let’s be clear salvation is through the grace of God alone and always has been from the beginning. Salvation never comes or came via works, is that clear enough so that debate doesn’t go ugly early.

    Yes! Thank you!

  22. Bob,
    When you ask “Who said…?” I need to turn it back on you.

    You are asking / stating that perhaps faith is incomplete until we do something.

    Incomplete = nothing more than a mist of idle thoughts = our thoughts?
    incomplete until we do something / add something from us = “until it’s tested by being obedient” – as in I have to do something to complete my faith?

    Unless we are talking about a different faith – faith is extra nos
