There is no scripture that shows Timothy calling Paul 'Father'. Timothy didn't write any of the New Testament.<quoted text>
It is never appropriate to ignore the words of Jesus himself. And for some reason you cannot comprehend that.
But, show me where Timothy calls Paul "father" ... or is that one of those *verses* that was not recorded and preserved?
It would be completely legal and normal if he did, since Paul referred to him as his son. We can base this on tradition and early Christian writings that it was appropriate to call Priests and Bishops, such as Paul,'father'.
Boy, you guys sure have allot of scripture verses to hide behind.
Don't you think at some point, you're going to need to prove that sola scripture exists? That Jesus commanded it? That the Apostles taught it?
I don't think you'll be able to smuggle your highlighted Bible into judgement day to show God your verses that you went 'all inn' with.
