UPDATE (10/16/2016): Tammy Ward and Hope Haven Events has released an official statement regarding this KUTV 2News report. See statement in the comments section.
On Wednesday, September 21st 2016 KUTV 2News posted the following report regarding Christ-centered energy healing, “The business behind Christ-centered energy healing”.
According to KUTV 2 News, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement regarding it’s position on Christ-centered energy healing.
“We urge Church members to be cautious about participating in any group that promises-in exchange for money-miraculous healings or that claims to have special methods for accessing healing power outside of properly ordained priesthood holders,” (LDS church spokesman Eric Hawkins)
Note that the statement, if verified, agrees with this compilation of statements by the Prophet Joseph Smith which has been compiled here, “What have LDS Church leaders taught concerning Christ-centered energy healing?”.
Also note this account from the New Testament:
And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,
Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.
But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.
Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.
Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.
For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.
Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me. (Acts 8:18-24)
