The holiest place on earth for Christians is the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem. This marks the spot where Jesus was buried, and where Christians believe, Jesus rose from the dead. In the past, the Israeli government let the utilities bills for the church slide. But over the past two years, the water company has been demanding that the Church of the Holy Sepulcher pay its water bills.
