comment Anglican Minor Orders?
This Wikipedia article explicitly states that the Anglican church abolished the minor offices. However it does have the office of "Lay Reader", who is more than a scripture reader and is permitted to perform several forms of worship service.

comment When did the use of formal, seminary-type education begin and why?
@LCIII Paul certainly had a formal education. If you are wondering why there was no formal Christian education in biblical times, that's because there were no Christian institutions in NT times that could have provided a formal education. If you consider the Rabbinical model of teaching to be 'formal', then all the disciples received formal teaching using that model from Jesus.

comment What is the difference between a Christian and a Messianic Jew?
There are those who are Christian and ethnically Jewish who do NOT self-identify as Messianic Jews. Doing so is partly about wishing to retain - at least partly - your identity as a Jew, and partly as a statement of belief that Christianity is the fulfilment of Judaism, not just 'another religion'.

BDSM covers more than you are saying here.

comment Is BDSM dealt with in Scripture?
BDSM covers a wide variety of practices, so it's pretty unlikely that there will be a simple "yes/no" answer to this. There will also be different views within Christianity.
