Cars washed in Holy water...........

Members of a Manchester, England church are cleaning cars with Holy water. In an attempt to be environmentally friendly and serve the community, church attendees will use the water from the morning's Baptismal service to wash local vehicles. Read the story here and here. Levenshulme Baptist Church does baptise by immersion. It is not known if a car washed by the water is eligible to serve with IMB.

dating back to wednesday....

Female youth intern comes to our church. Female youth intern lives with 6ft. 6 360lb music minister(and his family of course). Music minister goes out of town. Female intern alone with another female college student. Group of male college students prank call. Female youth intern and friend get scared. Male college students call again. Female youth intern gets even more scared. Male college students take matress from garbage. Male college students cover eye hole of music minister's front door with matress and ring doorbell/pound on door. One male college student jumps back fence to knock on window(me). Neighbor comes out screaming. All male college students run with great passion. Music minister comes home. Music minister gets very angry. "Come to Jesus" meeting in the music minister's office. Male college students informed of gun under neighbor's robe. Male college students forced to apologize to all parties involved and wash neighbor's car. No donations taken.

In order for the car to be counted as having a "holy washing," does it have to be washed by a proper administrator?

Wouldn't the car have to be entirely immersed to qualify? What's that gonna do to your electrical system?

The baptism may be sanctioned, but I want to know about the car's prayer language.

I have a ruling: This is Church of England Holy Water and therefore qualifies as a legitimate baptism in the Anglican church - but does not qualify for the SBC and the IMB.

Herbie qualifies.

If we disent on your ruling are we allowed to discuss why or would that be considered slander and gossip?

Come on, Art, read the article; it's a Baptist church (or at the very least, baptistic). Isn't that good enough for you? Man, Landmarkism runs deep in Kentucky...

I am the minister of Levenshulme Baptist Church, Manchester, UK.
Thanks for your interest in our story. A bit of fun for us but with a serious side too: A young person choosing to be baptised in water and then a responsible attitude to the water use afterwards. God bless you with or without the water! Ian Spence, Minister, LBC Manchester, UK.

Rev Spence,

Thanks for dropping by. I think it is great what you are doing. There is an inside joke you probably didn't understand.

Many of us on this blog are Southern Baptist and our International Mission Board Board of Trustees are making it difficult for some people to become missionaries because they are questioning their baptism. Most of us don't like the Landmark Theology that a person has to be baptised in a SBC church only. Plus they are not allowing people who have private prayer languages to serve either.

This was not by any means making fun of what your church is doing. God bless what you are doing. I wish we could get this kind of publicity!
