God our Father

Is political correctness going crazy?

I`ve been reading in a newspaper recently an article which is asking people leading Christian church worship to avoid calling God "Father".

Was this some modern or secular newpaper? - No, it was a weekly Christian newspaper - The Methodist Recorder.

It really makes me wonder what the country is coming to when such suggestions appear. If Jesus, God`s son taught us to call God "Father", as in the Lord`s Prayer, what right has anyone to say that we shouldn`t refer to God as Father? Or worse still, are that saying that God isn`t God?

It`s enough to put me off going to church, if human beings make changes like this, to fundamental issues.
