As far as the matter of Ordination...I think we can all agree that it is God who seperates one to the gospel ministry...
Having said that however; Ordination by the church is merely a recognition of what God has already determined. Ordination is in fact biblically based upon the scriptural laying on of hands to both confer blessing as well as separation to the gospel ministry. It is the church that ordains, not any seminary...
Acts 6:5-6: And the saying pleased the whole multitude. And they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch, whom they set before the apostles; and when they had prayed, they laid hands on them.
Acts 13:2-3: As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away.
2 Timothy 1:5-7: when I call to remembrance the genuine faith that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am persuaded is in you also. Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
In the first two examples, we see the Deacons; and Barnabas and Saul "ordained" (i.e. publically separated to a ministry) by the laying on of hands. Paul "ordained" young pastor Timothy by the laying on of hands...and the laying on of hands in a public venue is still part of the Ordination Service.
Now...there is also a secondary reason for ordination by the church that goes all the way back to the end of the first century...and that was in effort to try and keep false prophets and false teachers from plying their wares.
In the Didache there is a whole chapter devoted to discerning whether one is a true or false prophet...and in fact it was so bad that a certain Greek writer of satire (I'll have to look up his name for you) wrote to the effect that: The easiest way for one to make a living without having to work was to declare himself a Christian prophet....and the Christians would support him.
In my case (I'm Southern Baptist), when God called me into the pastoral ministry (kicking and screaming btw...LOL), my "home church" issued me a license to preach so that they could ascertain whether I had truly been called. I preached under license for about 8 months...and an Ordaining Counsil was convened of 12 pastors/deacons who then grilled me for almost 5 full hours...asking about my calling, theology, doctrine, personal testimony, etc. I was then dismissed so they could vote...and the vote was "yea".
At the Service of Ordination, after giving me a solemn charge to commit myself fully as an undershepherd of Christ's church and to ever draw close to the one "Good Shepherd" who is Christ... these men prayed and then laid hands upon me in front of the whole congregation...this was at the same time one of the proudest and most humbling things that has ever happened to me...and I pray that when everything is said and done I'll hear the Master say: "Well done, thou good and faithful servant".
So then...online "ordinations" have no biblical credibility as there is no examination or laying on of hands....
But let's not "throw out the baby with the bathwater" when we discuss ordination. JMO
