Call No One "Father" - In The Spiritual Sense

Call no one "father", in the spiritual sense. Your spiritual Father is the Father in Heaven - the Heaven of Heavens, Paradise.

It is very dangerous to call a fellow human being your "father in the Lord", "Papa", "Mama", "spiritual father", etc. When you do so, you may end up worshipping them and you may not be very conscious of this happening. A "personality cult" may develop around the person. Many people may start bowing down to and worshipping him or her - unconsciously. As a human being, you have a "WORSHIP CIRCUIT" built into you. You are "fearfully and wonderfully made" - you are intricate, delicate, superbly special and wonderful. There's a worship circuitry that connects you to the Paradise Father - directly!

If you are not careful, you may find yourself channelling that built-in worship circuitry to that man or woman you call your spiritual father/mother, Papa/Mama. That individual may end up taking the place of God in your life. That's a curse! That's very, very dangerous! Your eternity may be at stake! Your life on Earth may become messed up! This is no joke at all, beloved...

We are all brothers and sisters - children of God. Some of us are lost like the Prodigal Son. Some of us are saved - salvaged sons and daughters of the Heavenly Father. You should love and honor those who teach you TRUTH but you must not worship them. Don't call them "father" or "mother". They are your brothers and sisters. Yes, they may be more spiritually matured. But this doesn't make them better than you in the sight of God. Learn to love everyone, including your enemies. Fear no one. Bow down to no one. God bless and keep you! Amen.

"And call not [any one] your father upon the earth; for one is your Father, he who is in the heavens." - Jesus, Matthew 23:9 Darby Bible Translation

“While you should honor your rulers and reverence your teachers, you should call no man Father in the spiritual sense, for there is one who is your Father, even God. Neither should you seek to lord it over your brethren in the kingdom. Remember, I have taught you that he who would be greatest among you should become the server of all. If you presume to exalt yourselves before God, you will certainly be humbled; but whoso truly humbles himself will surely be exalted. Seek in your daily lives, not self-glorification, but the glory of God. Intelligently subordinate your own wills to the will of the Father in heaven." - Jesus, The Urantia Book 175:1.10


  1. How can you tell if someone else has taken authority over your "spiritual worship circuitry"? Here are some ways to know whether or not you have submitted your "worship circuitry" totally or partially to an individual, spirit, entity or being other than God the Father:
    - If you "fear" that individual
    - If you lose your composure in the presence of that individual
    - If you stand in awe of that individual
    - If you freak out in the presence of that individual
    - If you consider yourself as little or nothing before that individual, spirit, entity or being...

    The degree to which you do these things is directly proportional to the degree or level of the worship you give to that person. When you understand these things, you'll see clearly that some people worship their Pastors, Politicians, Movie Stars, Music Stars, etc...

  2. A preacher, speaking before a congregation said concerning his Senior Pastor or Lead Pastor, I paraphrase:
    He was like: I give thanks to my father who is also your father. I wish I could worship him because he is worshipable...

    And you could hear members in the audience screaming in agreement! This happened in a popular church. This is the mess we are talking about... This is what you get when you fail to understand and accept the UNDILUTED teachings of Jesus. The thing is, he and those members screaming in agreement are already worshiping their Senior Pastor. They may not admit it but their thoughts, words and actions give them all away.

  3. Safe-guard Your Spiritual Worship Circuitry

    ...If an individual understands what I'm talking about here, he or she would see clearly the hand of Lucifer in the Roman Catholic practice of calling their religious leaders, "fathers". Millions upon millions of people from generation to generation unconsciously ceded their "worship circuitry" to these Priests as a result of calling them, "fathers" - in essence, saying, "our spiritual fathers".

    It got so bad to such an extent that even when some children told their parents that they were being sexually abused by some of these Priests, some of these parents could not even believe it. There were parents who could not even allow themselves to entertain the idea that this was possible. Some were so scared to even entertain such an idea let alone make bold to bring the matter up publicly.

    "And call not [any one] your father upon the earth; for one is your Father, he who is in the heavens." - Jesus, Matthew 23:9 Darby Bible Translation

  4. This subtle, underhand interference by the forces of darkness is nothing new. It has been going on for ages upon ages. It comes in different forms in spiritual or religious circles, calling people "father", "Papa", "Mama", etc - in the spiritual sense. This is something that Jesus warned against.

    The goal of your arch spiritual enemies is to cut off your direct access to God. The enemy always comes as an angel of light in order to successfully deceive you... To overcome, you need true knowledge. You need to be watchful and prayerful. And you have to totally, wholeheartedly sell yourself over - completely to God. Develop a burning desire to identify and do His will. Allow the love of God to consume you!
