The same way you call your biological daddy's friends by their first names abi?

I don't even call them, I humbly prostrate to greet them, but never call them.... At worse, I call them Uncle......

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.

Jesus waa talking to his followers (christians) on how to mingle among themselves, was not talking about biological father or mother.

Some of you don't even read your bible.

Far from your assertions...... Until the religion is practiced appropriately, all the sheep are doomed based on this present practice......

Says who? A negligent, ignorant, African folk.

Religion is an evergreen victim of corruption and exploits. That doesn't mean that religion (Christianity) doesnt still have/maintain its purest form in some communities around the world today.

Behold, in a locality in Ijesha, Lagos, there exists a church where Holiness unto God is practised. And where God answers prayers and heals incurable sicknesses, marital and spiritual issues etc. A church where money is never a priority but the souls of men and the undiluted word of God is preached.

Perhaps, you came from a Catholic background, or a church where the Pastors sleep with members or where people pray and pray, yet nothing divine happens. And that has radically changed your view of religion(Christianity). it's such sheeples that are doomed except the merciful hand of God make them discover the place of true religion.

Then maybe you should explain this scripture to me boy since you read the scriptures more than us.

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

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.
It was talking about teachers, rabbi not biological father

Prayer is luck..... Because you prayed and it happened, does not prove that the prayer made it happen.....

Those that never pray and also experience positive responses, how did it happen without prayers?

I think what is most important in Christianity is not debating or arguing over how any pastor is being addressed by his members. The most important thing is our relationship with God. I suggest we all have cordial relationship with God and be in tune with God in order to fulfill our purpose in life.

Let me ask you just one question. Would you take the sayings of Paul over that of Christ?can't you see that what Christ said will automatically override Paul's?

Boy the bible tells me and you that ''All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 2Timothy 3:16-17. The same God who spoke through Jesus Christ spoke through Paul. God encountered him changed him from Saul to Paul and used him.

Also 2Corinthians 2:14 says ''But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually...................'' The bible is not a novel and can never I repeat it CAN NEVER be literally explained. It is the work of the Holy Spirit to correctly interpret it for you. You remember the Ethiopian Eunuch that was reading the scriptures and never understood a single thing until God sent Philip to explain things to him through the Holy Spirit?

I was discussing with someone n he mentioned that TB Joshua is my Daddy n I told him no, I have a dad already. I can only address those men of God as sir or madam but I can't go beyond that. I just like my orthodox church sha. Everything is still the same till today. All this millennium churches with their wahala sha.

If that is the case you can call your biology father his name, because you are ignorant of the word of God. If you want read Bible ask Holy Spirit to interprete to you, bible is not a novel you can read any how.

If u see nothing wrong even after going tru d scriptures above then something is wrong with you.
Nothing is wrong with him. If these Bible passages were to be taken literally, then you shouldn't call your father 'father'. Do not interpret the scriptures wrongly. Same Jesus was called 'rabbi/teacher/master/lord', He never rebuked anyone for that.

somehow:

So you are telling me not to read the other verses in the bible except for what Jesus wrote? The bible says all not some but ALL scriptures is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:.................''. Both the words of Jesus and Paul were given by the inspiration of God. The scriptures is not a newspaper you sit down to read and analyze with human wisdom but with the help of the Holy spirit. That is why the bible says '''But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually............'' So if you cannot respect the place of the Holy Spirit in analyzing the bible. leave it to those that do and have a proper understanding of it. U GRAB? Thanks.

It is rascal hypocritical folks like the Op that have no regard for Spiritual authority that usually have this kind of wrong mentality as erroneously supported from scriptures..What a pity.
In the kingdom of God, Fatherhood cannot be done away with..Fatherhood. Father's mentoring sons is not pride it's a spiritual relationship with many spiritual benefits.
We live in an arrogant and proud generation with no regard for spiritual authority were everyone wants to do as he or she pleases with no accountability that is why we have so many accidental destiny casualties..Great destiny wasting because no covering or guidance.

As great as God's servant is.My father in the Lord..Bishop David Oyedepo.he will still call Daddy GO his father..As anointed as Pst Paul enenche is he will still call Bishop David Oyedepo his father..As prophetic as Apostle Johnson Suleiman is..he will still call Daddy GO his Father.
Why is their ministry going forward in leaps and bounds because of the spiritual blessings such as prophetic coverings and guidance that God in his wisdom as attached to Fatherhood in the body of Christ. So be guided..don't be stupid with your ignorance lest you become a victim..

In 1983..God's servant Bishop Oyedepo was wondering who will lay hand on him to receive wisdom so he can run with the ministry vision well..God said send for my servant Adeboye..and he came and their relationship has developed ever since..to a Father-son relationship with so many testimonies I know relating to that.

In 1986..God spoke to Bishop Oyedepo..get down to Benin and meet my servant Benson idahosa he shall tell you what thou shall do..he was reluctant because Archbishop Idahosa was a very prophetic and controversial figure then but he obeyed the leading and he had a fatherhood mentoring relationship with Arch bishop Idahosa before he passed on..

Fatherhood is important and recognition of God placed spiritual authority cannot be overemphasized.

We are all Jesuses and Gods to The Supreme Spirit. Did you not hear God, Himself, call Jesus My God in Hebrew one? God decodes our intentions directly from our Hearts. So those calling G.O, PAPA, FATHER, MOTHER ARE MERELY CALLING CHIEF PRIEST, CHIEF PASTOR, BISHOP, PRIMATE CARDINAL ETC. God knows that they are discerning references.

Which verse of Hebrew did God call Jesus "My God"?
