Why are priests referred to as father? If god is our father why are priests regarded as such?
what you want to prove or realize
I don't understand why you call a priest father, is that not kind of strange? Why should i refer to any human as my father besides my own father? Are they not equal to us? It implies submission and respect greater knowledge.. But when did god sign off on their priestlyhood?
calling father is protocol, honor, respect
Why? What have they done that makes them worthy of the same title that we use for god?
they devote their life to become symbol of religion
All of them? What about the ones who fail to be that symbol of religion? Do you still call them father?
personally im not comfortable in calling father to anyone except my dad ( even in case of God...)
How would you feel if a little girl or boy was calling you father? Would you not correct them and show them you are no different than they are? It seems like a manipulative thing to do to make people call you daddy...
examples of good and bad or many around
Because they are fool
Sorry for these words but they are
Is it a fool who wishes for unconditional respect, or the one who gives it?
No their thinking is foolish that's why my dear friend
giving respect dont cost
We all have a big brain why we here others words this is our life not his
Who i give respect only to those who really deserve it
My respect is unique okay and I never waste it upon any other who doesn't no me
you should respect all
Do you respect a killer? A rapist?
That's why who ever i don't know why i give respect
No, not the same title as God, no, but I think we call priests FATHERS for the following reasons: 1st RESPECT 2nd the Church, apart from the fact that it is the symbolic representation of Jesus, is similar to a FAMILY where believers need quidance and support which they can expect from priests. Without priests, the believers (like small children in an average faimily) could be easily lost ....
fresh born child is always an angle
If prest try to kill me so what am i do i provide him respect ha
My respect is for only my parents teachers my elders only and my friends too
Who has bestowed these humans with the social status to be respected as a father?
What do u think
we are doing text about normal conditions
It is normal to call a man close to god father? How do you know if he is not evil and using his position to hide from suspicion
Are u saying to me
No but it would apply to you too, what do you call an elder that is wise in their teachings?
I called him guru
They teach me lots of things
They formed me wise
word of respect
If your dad is a priest is it father father?
When a girl calls me daddy i have to take a step back and say now hold on a second.. İs it really respect for an individual or respect for their social status?
Dude she loves u yar
I'm talking about a woman. Not a child.
Oho provide them respect okay
All the time
