All office bearers of priesthood are called fathers. Some people object to this. These objectors base their view on;

(Mat 23:9) "Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven.

For this we have set aside chapter five of this book to deal in detail with the issue of spiritual fatherhood of the priests.

1 Here we note that the word bishop is literally translated Overseer
