Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
I see absolutely no "ownage" here. I see people making excuses, because reality may just be too hard to face.
How ironic you say this when instead of actually having a dialogue with the responders on this thread instead you have chosen for page after page and day after day to construct straw-man fallacy after straw-man fallacy which of course are easy for you to knock down, but alas, you've not even grazed a a single response with any substance nor heard any of what we've been trying to discuss with you. Who is really having a hard time facing what reality here?
Is a straw man fallacy the words of God himself?
"Do not call any man Rabbi, Father, or Master".
These words are not a straw man fallacy, these are not words that I have made up or "constructed". These words were spoken by God, who told you not to do it. The excuses people gave me are ones of "traditions", "Paul did it", etc. Excuses, mere excuses. God said "Do NOT call any man Rabbi, Father, or Master, but call each other Brethren". Period.
I don't understand the diversion tactics, excuses, and why it is that people can't read the words of God as their superior authority.
I hate to break it to some of you, but the word of God is infinite in superiority over any apostle, bishop, priest, patriarch, or tradition that you may have.
I posted a photo of priests bowing to an image in the likeness of something in heaven. What more do I get - excuses as to why they should continue bowing to an image made in the likeness of something in heaven.
After that are character attacks. Dissonance. Avoidance of the exact subject at hand.
This is disobedience to the commands that God has given you. It doesn't matter in what context you try to call a priest "Father" or a bishop "Master", you are still calling these "spiritual leaders" both "Father" and "Master".
Now what did GOD yes, that's right, not Paul, but GOD, YHWH, who became man tell you to call each other? Brethren.
Now what did GOD yes, that's right, NOT Paul, but GOD, YHWH, who became man tell you NOT to call ANY man? Father & Master
What do the Eastern Orthodox call their priests? Father
What do the Eastern Orthodox call their bishops? Master
That's called - disobedience to GOD, that's right YHWH who became flesh called Yeshua on Earth.
