108. Is it OK to call your father (or anyone else) father?
God commands us to honor our fathers.Honour thy father and thy mother. Exodus 20:12, Deuteronomy 5:16, Ephesians 6:2He referred to Eliakim as "a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem."My servant Eliakim ... shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. Isaiah 22:20-21Elijah was Elisha's mentor, whom he addressed as "father."Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father. 2 Kings 2:11-12The King of Israel also addressed Elisha as "father."And the king of Israel said unto Elisha, when he saw them, My father, shall I smite them? shall I smite them? 2 Kings 6:21Paul referred to Isaac as "our father."Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac. Romans 9:10The author of 1 John addressed his letter to a group of men whom he called "fathers."I write unto you, fathers....
No, you have no father but God.
