    Our dear apostle Paul refers to fathers positively so the statement by Jesus is clearly a rhetorical one understood so by 1st C Jews. It is perfectly OK to call our Dads Father for example too.

    To be faithful to all the related bible texts we must note too here that justification as with salvation is given a past, present and future hope contexts. It is critical to be clear that we are...

    So you cannot or are unwilling to dialogue on the actual subject and be helpful.
