JR Ensey Chimes in on Hair Laying: Dec. 2010

The laying on of hair

Someone wrote me about this new “doctrine.” Here are his words: “Brother Ensey, I am having a hard time understanding a new doctrine. I understand the teaching of laying on of hands, however, I do not understand the teaching of laying of female hair upon the sick. It seems strange and out of order.”

This is a new practice in some circles, not a new doctrine. Just because it is not mentioned in the Bible doesn’t necessarily mean it can’t or shouldn’t be done at all as an act of faith. However, to attach it to a passage like I Corinthians 11:10 and extrapolate such a theory from that verse would be wresting the Scriptures. Someone might say, “Well, I know a lady who laid her long hair on a sick person and they got better, so that must mean that Paul was trying to tell us that there is power in long hair to heal the sick.” That would be extreme eisegesis.

Surely everyone is aware that anecdotal testimony can be obtained to corroborate ANYTHING! Books could be filled with subjective testimonies that seem to confirm everything from capture by space aliens to having been to the fiery hell and back. When are we going to learn that we judge subjective experiences by the Word of truth, not the Word by someone’s experience and anecdotal testimony? I heard of a lady who was healed when she put her hands in a tub of water that had been labeled by an evangelist as “the pool of Bethesda.” Her simple faith was rewarded.

But don’t start bringing tubs of water into the church. It is unwise to build doctrines or theories on one-time miracles or experiences

Overall, kudos to Ensey for speaking out against this.

To say this is simply "wrestling with Scripture" is akin to playing pattycake from a typically hard hitter.

Does anyone actually know anyone that has done this?

Re: JR Ensey Chimes in on Hair Laying: Dec. 2010

Question:
Was at a meeting just recently, and heard LS teach "the order of creation" I got a very brief chance to ask him about HMH, he said he doesn't teach HMH, and that he mentioned that he doesnt teach it. In his message he said that if God uses it, it doesnt make it magic. Like Mud, cloths, pools, ect.. I dont know what to think, but HMH is really out there, I dont see anyone supporting that doctrine.

What say ye?????

Go through the posts here, that have included both video and photos and tell me he hasn't propagated that. He certainly is rejecting that he doesn't teach "holy magic hair" but his teachings are saying otherwise (no matter if he calls it HMH or "authority and position before God" or "angel visitation")

ahem... "wresting" the Scriptures...

Sort of the same, but it think it carries a bit more force and meaning of intentional distortion.
