Your real question should be about the Lord's New Church and its ordination 
practices and should we follow the Law of Moses?
The Third Testament indicates that inaugurations into the Priesthood are to 
be done with the "laying on of hands," see DLW 220, CL 396, AE 79, AC 6292.

True, inaugurations were performed by anointing with oil as was done by Moses 
to Aaron and his sons. (see Leviticus 8:12 and 8:30) However, to be fair it 
must be pointed out that such inaugurations were also to include sacrifices 
(Lev. 8:14-30 and special clothing (Lev. 8:7-9;13) So if it is insisted (as Greg 
seems to be saying) that Priests be anointed as Moses was commanded to do, 
then animal sacrifice must be included as part of the ritual. (Lev. 8:17,21,29,36)
