Thesis 75: Self-Ordination

Christians should begin replacing the secular political and pedagogical institutions of the Old Age by ordaining themselves to a Christian ministry centering in “the church in their home” and extending to every area of life.[1]

1. 1 Corinthians 16:15; (cf. Romans 13:1)

Coming Soon: "Ordination"
The word "ordained" in Romans 13 is the same Greek word in 1 Corinthians 16:15. You don't need to go to seminary and have someone wearing a clerical robe "ordain" you before you can have a church in your home.

Not that there's anything inherently wrong with continuing education:
