The Truth is Something Simple Meant for Simple Minds
Deviations from the truth complicate matters. They cause entanglement of ideas as well! No one can deny that within the religious world of our generation there are apparent detours from the path of truth to unimaginable fables.
Being carried away from truth to fables is not as simple as it may seem. It is caused by some hidden and complicated matters; some of which are rejection of truth, the work of an unseen enemy, and pleasures of the flesh!
There’s a host of unseen enemies convincing people to transgress the truth!
The pleasures of the flesh brought about by sin easily convince people to deviate from the truth.
It is by his true faith in God that Moses was able to overcome the call of sin. The truth is simple!
T-R-U-T-H is spelled by the word of God! The entirety of the Word of God!
Just the Word of God. No more!
The truth in the written word of God in the Bible says:
The Lord Jesus Christ speaks of things spiritual in His teachings.
When He said, “Call no man your father upon the earth,” He was speaking of spiritual things. He did not mean that we cannot call “father” the father of our flesh or of our physical being.
Catholic popes and priests are not our fathers in the flesh unless they have the courage to accept that they have fathered some of us – and in a very secretive manner! If they are not fathers in the flesh, why do they let their subjects call them father? Spiritually speaking, only the Father in heaven is our spiritual father whom we may religiously address as Father.
There were times when the Lord Jesus Christ addressed His disciples as “children”, but never did He allow them to call Him Father! There is no instance recorded in the Bible wherein the Christians called Him Father. He was addressed as “Lord”, “God”, “Master” and “Teacher”, but never “Father” because He prohibited them to call Him such!
The apostles addressed some Christians as “sons in faith” but never allowed these people to call them “Father”.
Catholic priests and leaders are called by their members in a manner of utmost respect which they have dictated to them. They include many titles including “Monsignor” which means “My lord.” This is shamelessly more excessive than they call the Father in the prayer, “Our Father”. It is utterly a blatant disrespect to the commandment of the Lord Jesus Christ!
Notice the simple truth my beloved readers. In “Our Father, which art in heaven” the word Father is simply “Father!” But when Catholics address their priests they call them:
Why are the titles in adjectives and adverbs in the superlative degree? Because these catholic priests and leaders had commanded their members to call them such.
In contrast, there was no apostle or minister of Christ who was addressed by the first century Christians as Most Holy father or Most Reverend father or even simply “father”, because they knew how to obey the simple commandment and the simple truth that says:
To God be the glory and honor forever! Amen!
