great idea, Country! i guess i've been around the block a few times, too, looking for a church that met my expectations. lots of em i wouldn't go back to. back to your question - i don't know how holy water started or what the point is. i know water is symbolic in scripture and used in baptism , but beyond that...? i can't answer that one.
How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?...
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails....
