Worship Defined: reverent honor and homage paid to God or sacred personage...
Psalm 111:9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name. (KJV)

God's name is holy and reverend. The question, are the names of preachers, priests, popes, elders, bishops, deacons, and pastors, reverend and holy. Do they deserved to be worshiped? Do they deserve the title of Reverend or Holy Father?

John 17:11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father.....(NIV)

Jesus refers to God as Holy Father. Nowhere in Scripture is any person mention as Holy Father.

Acts 10:25,26 As Peter entered the house, Cornelius met him and fell at his feet in reverence. 26 But Peter made him get up. "Stand up," he said, "I am only a man myself." (NIV)

Peter did not accept worship from Cornelius. Peter was not a Reverend nor was he a Holy Father.

Those who like to be called Reverend or Holy Father would say, well that is just a term of respect. No, calling someone sir, is a term of respect.

Reverend and Holy Father are terms of worship. They are reserved for God alone.

There is no Scripture in the Bible that refers to any apostle, pastor, bishop, elder, nor the Virgin Mary as being worthy of worship. Only God should be revered.
