"GOD: Our Heavenly Father" or "Daddy or Dad"??

How do you feel about this? I am a Christian, Baptist. I have recently heard more people calling God ,Our Heavenly Father: "Daddy or Dad"... What are your views on this?? I ain't saying it's wrong or judging them.., but I think when you say "Daddy or Dad," it lacks respect... God is the creator of everything...

  • God doesn't exist, so I just find it weird.

  • Personally, I think it's a little creepy when people call a God "Daddy".
    I don't have an opinion about whether it's morally right or wrong.

  • Ehhhh....to each their own. I've never said it....I prefer to say "God," "father," heavily father," "creator," but whatever.

  • I agree that it lacks respect. I don't know about being morally wrong, but it wouldn't "feel" right to me.

  • The 1st time I heard someone say "In Daddy's name I pray."" I was offended. I had never heard anyone refer to Our Heavenly Father as Daddy Before.

  • Wow anon, someone on the internet doesn't agree with you... the world isn't going to end because of it.

    As far as "respect". Well, I'll put it this way. ANYONE can be a father, it takes someone special to be a daddy.
