Update about energy healing in church manuals

Update about energy healing in church manuals

Author: Hector Sosa, Jr/Tuesday, December 22, 2020/Categories: Scriptures, Church

There have been recent changes in the church manuals. This is a fairly common practice, but I believe the change on "energy healing" is going to be far-reaching. All of the changes that happened in December 2020 are in this official link:

The paragraph about this is this one:

An updated section on medical and health care notes that “seeking competent medical help, exercising faith, and receiving priesthood blessings work together for healing, according to the will of the Lord.” Latter-day Saints “are discouraged from seeking miraculous or supernatural healing from an individual or group that claims to have special methods for accessing healing power outside of prayer and properly performed priesthood blessings. These practices are often referred to as ‘energy healing.’ Other names are also used. Such promises for healing are often given in exchange for money.”


The Gospel of Jesus Christ is very simple. The priesthood chain of command is well understood. If there is a problem with church leadership, the Lord will take care of it.

Our religion does not require nor want blind faith. Blind faith is an actual hindrance to reaching our potential as children of Heavenly Father. 

Moroni's words still have power today. Moroni 10:4-6

4 And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.
5 And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.
6 And whatsoever thing is good is just and true; wherefore, nothing that is good denieth the Christ, but acknowledgeth that he is.
