Is there Age Criteria for anointment and Clergy Rank???
A picture of a young shepherd clad in the robe of an assistant evangelist surfaced online and has sparked reactions from many celestians.
A comment flew in that he joined the church at 2015, got baptized and was given a rank of assistant evangelist after serving in helping capacity and yielding to call as a first rank
According to celestial constitution, a member must first be baptized one year after joining the church then a space of two, three or five years he/she goes for what is called anointment.
But the question is at what age is one qualified to go for anointment and especially serve as a clergy in the celestial church.
The ranks of evangelists, superior evangelist and senior evangelist were worn by matured and elderly men in the church but today we see quite young people wear them and we wonder what is happening indeed
We see young ladies wearing mother celestial, youths in their 30s wearing superior robes and more..
Most of the ranks have year intervals of three to four years in between them before one can get to the next one, before one gets to the uppermost ones, he is already into 50s or 60s.
But today strange happenings have been seen everywhere with lesser ages
Is this exceptional for anyone that intends to become a clergy
Is the calling into the vineyard determined by age or dedication and willingness…
Does age have a factor in any celestial rank or as clergy…
Can this be given by merit..
