I was having breakfast with my mother on last week at a local restaurant when I overheard several preachers talking about their ministerial Licenses and Ordinations and what organized Christian institution issued their ordinations and how long they have been ordained. As they spoke, their voices began to get louder. It was obvious that they wanted others to hear them. Some were actually bragging about themselves and their long history of service in some “Apostolic or Episcopal District.”
The Spirit of CHRIST in me began to be grieved over this shameless spectacle of pride and bigotry.
Since when does GOD’S choice in servants need man’s approval or an ecclesiastical License or Ordination certificate?
Who started such a thing and for what purpose and to what end? How does such man-made credentialing honor GOD?
Did Christ require HIS chosen Apostles to be ordained by the Pharisees or licensed by the local synagogue?
The man-made organized religious institutions of Christianity may require certain academic and ecclesiastic credentials before one is allowed to serve in “their churches” or preach from “their pulpits” but there is no example of this in HOLY Scripture nor was it a practice of the Apostles of CHRIST.
However, when the LORD sends HIS chosen vessels with HIS divine message, HE also sends them with HIS DIVINE POWER. (Ref. Luke 10)
“Whoever GOD chooses to SEND HE also empowers to GO.”
