Some people just read logus without a revelation of what the scripture is actually saying, instead of patiently asking the Holy Spirit to interpret for them, they immediately run to teach others. Those names are said out of respect, where it is wrong is when you now worship this men as God, they now take the position of your Heavenly Father. Don't call this men of God your father, you have one father which is in heaven, it is not the name but the intention of the heart.

Op and people around here , I use to be of them that condemn any man of God who answers daddy in the lord until I come across it in the Bible where Paul was calling Timothy his son in the lord , and him Timothy regards Paul as his father in the lord , according to the book of 1 Timothy 1:1-3 , so my conclusion here is that it is also Biblical , because any one who is building somebody's faith to grow in the lord is automatically that person's spiritual father or even mother . I see nothing in it now as long as the person in question bearing such title would not be carried away by such honour, but it is different from one answering Reverend that one is God's name according to the book of psalms 111:9 KJV

Can this holy spirit interpret the problems Nigeria is facing? Or we still require more patience awaiting the interpretation?

So what about the ones referred to as "father" in Catholic church for example? What's the difference between father and daddy/papa? Don't they all mean the same thing?

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.

You are still getting it wrong...Yes, you are right to point out that, he was speaking against the Pharisees and Scribes....

But, he was speaking to his disciples, Christians...he addressed those he was speaking to as ‘brethren’...

He addressed them as having “...one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren”. These are the people he was asking not to call anyone Master or Father as the Pharisees and Scribes do...

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.

It is you and people like you, who have no understanding and go about giving teachings that ministers more questions than answers.

So your interpretation of Matthew 23:9 means that I have sinned if I call any man my father including my own biological father.

Forgetting that the Lord Jesus was speaking strictly againts the actions of the pharisees in those days

But you in your confusion forgot that even Jesus also referred to Abraham as Father Abraham......

You also failed to realise that the Word of God commends us to "Honour thy Father and thy mother".

By interpretation, you suggests that our earthly fathers are not worthy of honour since we are to call no man upon the earth father....

Jesus said "Call no one your father" but you still call your biological Daddy "My Father".

If you want to literally obey that verse +%%DON'T CALL HIM DADDY or FATHER#!@,+

Next you see your dad, address him as Mr XYZ. Even before his friends and colleagues. Let them see that his Son has gone wayward. grin

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

I have heard you.

I rather discuss on what unites the church and not what divides it.

Shut up boy.

If it is a sin to call anyone Daddy or master why are you calling your biological father daddy?.

Just accept that you don't understand that passage of the bible.

First of all, you choose a very unimportant topic just to start an online dumb argument. In Hebrew 6:1, Paul said
Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, ... (This topic follow for elementary matters ) Hebrews 6:1 NIV

Paul writing to the Corinthian

Even if you had ten thousand guardians in Christ, you do not have many fathers, for in Christ Jesus I became your father through the gospel.
1 Corinthians 4:15 NIV . (So they was to address him as brother Paul after reading this. )

In Thessalonians 5:12, Paul again said...
We beg you, our friends, to pay proper respect to those who work among you, who guide and instruct you in the Christian life. Treat them with the greatest respect and love because of the work they do. Be at peace among yourselves.
1 Thessalonians 5:12‭-‬13 GNT .... Even me, I had a landlord we used to call daddy out of respect because that's the highest respect we can show outwardly. Why should I now have a problem with calling my pastor Daddy?

JOBLESSNESS is indeed a disease. If you're think you're so knowledgeable about the Bible, better than the whole MOG in the world, perhaps you should be a Pastor.
Dude, the Bible is not a story book and without the guidance of the Holy Spirit you can not understand what is written there in.
Trying to get cheap popularity abi? Freeze descendant. Lol.
The things of the Spirit are foolishness to the carnal minded" Chew on this and repent of your ways.

Reverend is good, but adding father to it is wrong. Bishop is Biblical.

They are all titles.
Bishop is Biblical, yes, but someone will argue that it is a "Hebrew"/ "Aramaic" name. And their equivalent for it is, "Daddy G.O".
It gets more illogical if you look deeper into both arguments.

I don't know where Nigerians get this twisted idea that the pastors care about salvation.

They are businessmen whose only interest is money. They only use the Bible as a tool to lure givers and make them lower their guards. Mechanics have tools. Builders have tools. All in the pursuit of money. Pastors have Bible to make ends meet. Interested in salvation? Go on your knees and talk to God directly.
