Misters/Priest are first
and formost ordained by God, when they receive 'The Calling' and accept
it. By accepting the calling of Christ they are, by that same decision,
'Ordained'. In fact, no other ordination without this ordination
makes a 'Minister of Christ', whatever name they choose to go by.
Now that they are 'God Ordained' they may join a church organization and
be ordained therein also (The Ordination of Men), or just do the good work
within 'The Church of Christ' - the assembly of christians.
Now, there have always been
two kinds of Ministers/Priest: those who have the calling and do the good
works after their baptism, and those who do not have the calling but pretend
to have, as they pretend to do the good work, but do nothing of the kind
within their hearts, for they are the congregation of Satan and occupy
their position for personal gain, be it lust of the flesh, money, power
or all of these. These can only ever have been 'Human-Church
Ordained' - the ordination of men.
Don't listen to any fables:
that your minister shows some kind of man-invented spiritual elevation.
This is false, and used by marketeers. Do not be fooled by men-invented
holiness: a holiness anyone can play. Jesus says: you shall know
them by their fruit. You should examine their words and compare
it to Christ's. You should examine their way of life and compare
it to the Gospel - so you can recognize their fruit and see that
they are a good fruit. Their words and doctrine must be that of Christ;
as a minister of Christ and not as a minister of men.

Gates Of Hell Shall Not Prevail Against It
Through the ages Catholics
and other Nicolatians tried to defy the above quotation by Jesus, oppressing
and murdering many, deceiving and misleading many more, but they have not
and shall not prevail against 'His Church'.
