I know the Bible says, call noone your father. However, I am confused about whether or not if that includes referring our Dad's as our father?

Hi

Eph.6:1-4 are clear examples that our biological fathers may be called "father".

God bless,

Good answer Duval. I think that Brother David is thinking about:

Matthew 23:9-10 KJV  And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.  10  Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

Matthew 23 here is talking about a spiritual sense - replacing our Heavenly Father with a man. This would be a troubling question for some religions that refer to their spiritual leaders as Father. Duval, you chose an excellent portion of Scripture to illustrate the difference.

Love In Christ,
Tom
