Is It Right To Pay For Confirmation?

I'm an Anglican and I often have problems with my father because I refused to be confirmed as an Anglican in the church. My reason for refusing is that the pastor said I should bring 20 litres of kerosine (N120 at that time), a crate of egg, some cups of egusi, etc. The second time (in a different Anglican church) I attended the classes till few weeks b/4 the confirmation day when the pastor said we should bring N5,000, over one hundred of us. I withdrew, not because the money was absent but because my mind did not welcome such act. Some of passed through exams and failed, but the pastor told them that the money will get them confirmed, even if they have not attended the class for once. I was shocked. I vowed not to do that in my life. My dad thinks I'm crazy. Now, is this confirmation worth anything if it can just be bought like that?

I am actually suprised this is happening in an anglican church, it is normally the pentecostal / Africanized churches that comes up with these kind of scams. Well i guess the devil is still hard at work polluting these so called churches.

Good day my good friend Slap1,

I am born Anglican and attend the church very well in Lagos, Umuahia and partly Bayelsa. I came to realise that doctrines has beclouded churches. Having the kind of mind you purported, I had to pray to God to help me to know the truth of His Word. Jn 5:39 expect us to search the scriptured, whit doing this you will be able to hold on to the truth of God's word and act accordingly.

You father may be a religious fellow, thereby persuading you to do the contrary, try and cleave to God in sincerity and God will help you. Those fathers may be members of Anglican church for years, being religious, yet not BORN AGAIN.

My advice to you is Be Born Again, allow Christ to be the lord of your life.

My dad was so annoyed by my refusal that he went to ask the pastor what all that money was for. Maybe it's a slip of tongue but the pastor said they (the vicar and the rest of them) shares the money among themselves, after giving the Bishop his own. I laughed bitterly. Whenever i want to marry I will quietly go to another church, wed and come back. When I die, let them all stay at their houses!
