We should not call men “father” as a religious title.
Jesus is speaking of religious titles in Matthew 23:5-11 (He parallels the term with “Rabbi” and “master”). The religious title “father” is unbiblical (e.g., the Catholics practice this). The term “father” in the literal sense (as in a child and father), or as a term of endearment (in the case of Elisha and Elijah) is acceptable.
