There are protestant denominations that also use consecrated water in specific settings.


Even the self-proclaimed "fundamentalists" that I used to know used consecrated olive oil for laying-on of hands.

Well, I never saw anything like that in church. I think I would have remembered that.

No, they would "annoint" the person with a dab of olive oil on the forehead. I think it was mostly for healing but it may have also been used as a blessing for people going out to the mission field or to pastor a new church.

The cynic in me suggests that there's more money in olive oil selling it by the ounce than by the gallon.

Re: Justification: Impeccable Reasoning
So is there any reason...apart from willful malice..that your link labeled Christian Sex Rituals actually goes to a Black Majik Occult Site? Your demon is quite feisty this morning....I cant wait to get rid of it.

My grandson and I have talked about starting an eyedrops business. $5-$10 per fluid ounce equals $1000+ for a gallon of water with minute traces of other cheap ingredients. The one ounce bottles probably cost the eyedrop manufacturers 10 times more than the eyedrops.

Plus how all the packaging drives the price up. Especially when it involves a brand name.

Which makes me wonder. In their deification of Trump, how long before evangelicals put Trump's name on their churches. Isn't that supposed to be part of the progression of the Mark of the Beast?

Re: Justification: Impeccable Reasoning
Actually the next passage from the Book of Common Prayer Rite of Baptism covers the oil for anointing.

Consecration of the Chrism

The Bishop may then consecrate oil of Chrism, placing a hand on the
vessel of oil, and saying

Eternal Father, whose blessed Son was anointed by the
Holy Spirit to be the Savior and servant of all, we pray you to
consecrate this oil, that those who are sealed with it may
share in the royal priesthood of Jesus Christ; who lives and
reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, for ever and ever. Amen.

Re: Justification: Impeccable Reasoning
I went to the doctor's complaining of an itching inner ear (I know, only 40 years left to live, get over it).

She said to try olive oil. It didn't work so she next recommended vinegar. I thought, fuck it, I'll do the full salad dressing with mustard and bit of honey.

Didn't work. Hydrocortisone killed it dead. Science.

SNOT
What sort of perverted sadistic designer would create a response to pollen in the air by producing at least a FUCKING GALLON OF SNOT in just the past 12 hours??????

My nose is running so frequently that I can't drive or do anything that requires my hands and concentration for more than 60 seconds!!!!!!

Thanks a bunch evolution!!!!!

Re: SNOT
I felt a bit strange about giving you a cheer for having become a miserable snot factory so I leave you to help overcome my feelings. Hope this helps.
