Paul reminds Timothy that the imposition of hands on another
is not to be taken lightly.
1 Timothy 5:22
Do not lay hands too readily on anyone, and do not
share in another's sins.
Paul himself was ordered or ordained by the leaders of the
Church at Antioch.
While they were worshipping the
Lord and fasting, the holy Spirit said,
"Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul
for the work to which I have called
completing their fasting
they laid hands
and sent them off.
