Online Legal Paperwork Option
There are websites that will give you an instant ordination or license to you. These websites define ordination or license in the way someone wants to define it. The is no statement of faith that is based on the Bible. Many Christians and others call this an online Ordination Scam because it is really about ordering a piece of paper.
The small amount of training offered is not substantial or does it require testing to assure that someone has done the study. The worldview is not Christian. The training is not based on the Bible. The business model is to sell you ordination paperwork that may be needed in many states.
This option is easy to do and millions, even Christians, do it. Many who do these options regret it when friends at the wedding say things like, “Did you order your ordination papers online?” And you laugh to minimize the insult.
