Conformation

I can’t tell you how many times I see students misspell “Confirmation” as “Conformation.”  This is highly amusing to me knowing the traditional confirmation ministry is much closer to conformation in design and mind set.  I suppose there is some Biblical evidence for the misspelled name:

Romans 8:29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren;

In a way, the confirmation process is about the Spirit working to conform us to the image of the Son.  So maybe it’s not such a bad name after all…
