Question: In order to become ordained you must attend a Denominational Seminary?
past decades and centuries this was predominately true, however this is
no long the case. Let's take a look at what Seminary means currently.
Becoming ordained by an independent ministry or church that has a
website online does not give me the same authority as Denominational
Most Christian Seminaries will take a long time to complete their course of study.
Most Seminaries will cost you a lot of money to attend.
Most Seminaries can restrict what you can do with your ordination after you are ordained.
If you leave the Seminary Denomination in the future, you may also loose your ordination authority.
People who run the Denomination will dictate what you can and can not do or say from the pulpit.
In short, you have very little independent authority with Seminary Ordination.
However, many people prefer
this route to ordination and this type of authority and oversight by
the Denomination Leaders. If that is what you wish, there is nothing
wrong with following this path in life.
This statement is both True and Not True.
Many websites will ordain you
as almost anything such as a pagan minister, devil worshiper, or any religion you
wish to pick. However, when they have no real convictions themselves,
their credibility in passing on convictions with principles with their
type of ordination is extremely low. They ordain you to Just "Do What's
Right"(Interesting), but not a sincere ordination. Such ordinations
may or may not cause you problems down the road, depending on how you
are using it. Also these ministry's are often very hard to get in
touch with should you have questions.
There are some ministries and
churches on line that can ordain you in a simple, quick manner and give
you all the same authority as a Seminary Graduate.
