Do any other churches besides the LDS (Mormon) church give the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands?


If so which ones? If not, why not?

Acts 19:6
6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

Acts 8:17
17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.

Heb. 6: 2
2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of…

There are a few out that that do, just not the same way the LDS church does. The biggest difference is that the LDS church does so by the priesthood, whereas other denominations believe that simply being a member of the church (body of Christ) grants them the ability to perform the laying on of hands. The prayer is not structured either.

LOL! The Holy Ghost is not greater unique to contributors of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints than air is to the human race. i’m a member of that Church too! Now, that suggested, the present of the Holy Ghost is a distinctive matter completely. because it says contained in the hot testomony, the present ought to settle for by capability of the laying on of palms. subsequently, it would nicely be executed contained in the direction of the right Preiesthood Authority. because it says in Hebrew, no guy can take this honor unto himself…the sole place the genuine Priesthood of God could be discovered is contained in the Church of Jesus Christ. all and sundry can sense the Holy Ghost and be directed by capability of it, however – basically like various human beings can breathe.

Yes we Catholics do it. It is called confirmation, like coming of age enough to accept the Holy Spirit were the bishop lays hands on you to receive the Holy Spirit.

The laying on of hands was used in scripture when the holy spirit did not come of his own accord upon belief. Strange that we recieve by faith, but we are baptised by laying on of hands. No sense to it.
Acts. Did you recieve the Holy Spirit when you came to believe? Peter and John had to be sent so they could receive.
When Peter went to the house of Cornelious it was spontanious. Both methods are biblical.

yea….but not specifically in the same way –

the LDS use it to confirm and bestow the HG (as well as other uses)
the Catholics use it along with oil in annointing and ordination rights
Anglicanism uses it as an important part of spreading Christ’s teachings
the Cathars used it (before their annihilation) as initiatory rights
……and even England and France’s Kings used it (as the ‘Divine Touch’) to heal usually at Easter. I don’t think either monarchy uses this right anymore, nor claims the line of authority through the church to do so.

The LDS church passes around God’s gifts and fake authority like earmarks at a congressional pork fest.

God speaks to all His children equally well without the need for he intervention of some other Man. Note in the LDS church, it is always a Man, never a woman.

All Christian Churches believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, but not all Christian churches are Spirit Filled The Mormon Church is a false Christian church..they do not believe that the Holy Spirit is God.

Pentecostals and some Baptists ,Church of God ,it depends on the Church and the area.

I think this is a doctrine unique to the LDS church.

yes my church does, it is non-denominational
