[quote=Exporter]The two Evanagelists made him a preacher- ordained him. So in some Affiliations if two preachers agree, one can become a Reverand.
Have King James. Will preach. Drop by and ordain me, will ya, huh?
Seriously, as a Southern Baptist, I attended an ordination. One preacher “ordained” the other. And I thought, “I can do that. He doesn’t have any more authority than I have!” I’d never heard of
Apostolic Succession, but I instinctively knew that something was wrong. I learned later that Baptists didn’t exist until 1607. The founder, John Smyth, baptized himself! (They didn’t start their trademark immersing until a split in 1644 created the Immersion Baptists.)
If you’ve never attended a Catholic ordination, try to get there in June. All Catholics are invited. Its a powerful experience. Apostolic Succession at work.
Ex-Southern Baptist, ex-agnostic, ex-atheist, ecstatic to be Catholic!
