"Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;" Eph 5:19 / Col 3:16.
With adults it only proceeds after a catechumen "exam" where some spiritually deaf, dumb and blind priest decides if you get to be part of God's church (power over the Laity).
important: this means all triple baptized babies in Eastern Orthodoxy are considered full members of the church (through the work of a man) but in Roman Catholicism everyone (not just adult proselytes) go through confirmation before being considered "full" church members.
The power trip idea of a priests power has divergent directions in the Catholic and Orthodox Faith. In Catholicism the idea of a Pope is worse, and that the priest is empowered himself to turn bread into flesh and blood, but in Orthodoxy they believe a priest makes a baby or child into a member of the church without confirmation, to exalt "their power".
