Why does laying on Hands not work like it should?
What do you do when you are a spiritual leader and you anoint with oil, lay hands on and pray the prayer of faith.. but nothing happens?
Laying on Hands does not stand alone as a doctrine, Laying on Hands is one of the 6 doctrines of Christ found in Hebrews 6: 1-2 (1. Repentance from dead works, 2. Faith toward God, 3. The Doctrine of Baptisms, 4. Laying on hands, 5. Ressurection of the dead, 6. Eternal judgment)
These doctrines are progressive and each is a foundation for the next one in the order of presentation in the scriptures. The practice of Laying on Hands will only work if we understand the preceding doctrines that are foundational to the practice.
