What name do you call your father at home? Since the bible says only God should be called father.
Someone is talking of pastor and you are talking of biological father. Anyway, christians are delusional folks who don't know their own bible. Keep worshipping your G.O

Stupidity. And I don't blame the OP, I blame the person that moved this to front page. Please when you get home today, address your father by his first name or middle name. And when you get to the office, when you want to refer to your boss as your oga, refer to him as your colleague.

You are taking the passages out of context....the leading word there is “Rabbi” which is a religious & spiritual teacher.

Jesus was speaking in context of born again Christians and those who are their spiritual leaders, mentor....and also relationship among born again brothers and sisters.

He commands that you should not call them father as you only have one father in heaven.

The father at home gave birth to you physically, you ought to respect him and call him your father while not neglecting the fact that, you also experienced a spiritual birth (i.e. if you are truly born again) and must realize that, your father in heaven alone did that and you have to give Him that respect and not give it to workers and tools He used to accomplish that spiritual birth.

1 Corinthians 4:15
For if you were to have countless tutors in Christ, yet you would not have many fathers, for in Christ Jesus I became your father through the gospel


Ephesians 6:1
Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.

1 Thessalonians 2:11
just as you know how we were exhorting and encouraging and imploring each one of you as a father would his own children

1 John 2:14
I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one

It's clear here that Jesus was talking about the church and not families. That's why he mentioned teacher, master, lord and Christ. Not blood relationship like mother and father.

You are so myopic in your reasoning. At my place of work, you dare not refer to your superior as oga, boss or anything close. Everyone refers to their colleague as Mr. X, Mrs Y or Miss Z.

I have also seen white families who call their parents by their names. Not everyone must conform to the African way of salutation, you know? The OP is right, we always try to quote the Bible into the context that suits our selfish agenda while the Bibile itself is very straightforward. I challenge you to give a "spiritual meaning" to the verse the OP quoted. Afterall, that's what you sycophants are good at. Spiritual meaning kor, metaphysical meaning ni. Yet, I do not blame any of you, I blame the self-righteous, proud and arrogant clergymen who only preach what their gullible followers want to hear.

The desire of every church is to grow not only in numbers but also spiritually. The growth of every church is connected to so many factors and one of such factors is the ability to communicate the principle of the church with the members effectively and also motivate new members or converts to participate effectively in the activities of the church.

Havent you heard After God who you should give respect too next Your parents and after that no more. Do you respect your parents like you respect your pastors . God himself ordered that we respect our parents after him most especially our mothers. I call my Father Daddy and God is God and Daddy General overseer. I do not call my Daddy Daddy General overseer or Father in the lord because Only God is the general overseer of All creatures. Did i answer your question?

I will ask you three questions. 1. Since you refer to you own father as daddy. How do you call your father's friends? Daddy or by their first names?
2. If you are a christian, and your GO or pastor is old enough to father you, and his name is Olufemi Emeka Julius, if you want to call him to his face, how will you address him.
3. Do you pray before you read the bible? Because the scripture says, '' All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, .... . Hope you know it takes the help of the Holy spirit to understand things written in the bible. The bible says His words are new every morning: meaning the same verse you read today will have a different meaning to you tomorrow thanks to the Holy Spirit?

The bible didn't say Daddy G.O. It made mention of Rabbi, Master. Is there anyone here that calls their pastors Rabbi and Master? When a pastor is referred to as daddy, they are being referred to as father, daddy in the Lord. The same goes to mummy. Would you rather call them by their formal name?

Bible says, my people perish because of lack of knowledge. It takes spiritual understanding for you to decode biblical word. I see nothing wrong with G. O, daddy etc. It's only when you accord respect or reference them more than God.. Then, your understanding is shallow. When you against the word "father" how will you address the father that gave birth to you? Let he that lack wisdom ask from God. Tnx

If you go through that passage properly, you will understand he was actually speaking against the Pharisees and Scribes. Just read the whole passage and stop picking one verse of the scripture and making analysis that ain't balanced.

There is nothing wrong in calling them father's in the Lord.
Several times in the scriptures Paul who wrote more than half of the new testament referred to Timothy as his son , which made him his father in the Lord
1 Timothy 1:2 Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.
1:18 This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;

You cannot read the Bible like a novel you need spiritual understanding. That is why Bible says get wisdom , get understanding.
Now see where Paul referred to himself as Father:

1 Corinthians 4:15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.

What Bible is against is to idolise a spiritual father or mentor.

It is just befuddling how a human being born of a woman will just hold a whole multitude of people bondage. He is the one to arrange their lives, dictate who to marry and take the position of lord and master of the life God freely gave to them.

It is not as if this is the first time we have heard of them before. Many have reigned in some decades before them and they are gone yet people wont still discern to know that many of them are just broad daylight scammers using the Bible as their tool. Cant they just see with their eyes or are they the type they say have eyes yet thry can't see.

This means you shouldn't see them as supreme to God.
Calling them Daddy G.O, Papa or Daddy does not equate them to God in anyway.

So there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.
Daddy and Papa equals to Father. The Bible warns against calling a fellow Christian that is not your biological father that.

Pls read and understand

Going by your arguments, then calling someone "Pastor", "Reverend Father", "Reverend", "Bishop", etc is wrong as these are also titles.
And should be scraped. Right?

Of course it is illogical. And hence, your argument, illogical.
Reverend is good, but adding father to it is wrong. Bishop is Biblical.

They call them " daddy's, G.O, Papa, and the likes. Is it that these men are so blind they can no longer see the scriptures.

Matthew 23:8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

23:10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

23:11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

23:12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.



You mean to tell us that these folks have never read this portion of the Bible? Yet they encourage their members to keep calling them what is reserved for the Holy Spirit.


Anyway, by their fruits you shall know whose servants they represent.

Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

They have turned their members to slaves in the churches, screaming at the members and displaying the works of their flesh.


Philippians 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.


If indeed you want to be exalted, we mean taken to heaven above, then you must obey the scriptures and not some dark ages doctrines of men.

2 Timothy 1:2 To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

In another place you will see where Paul actually referred to himself as a spiritual father:

What the Bible is against is turning them to Idols, but they are worthy of double honour. 1 Timothy 5:17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
See also John the beloved here : 1 John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

He referred to them as his children, and that made him their father
