“A personal God is, psychologically, nothing other than an exalted father.”
(Freud, Leonardo da Vinci: A Memory of His Childhood, 80)
Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Beware of practicing your piety before others in order to be seen by them; for then you have no reward from your Father in heaven.
If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
For the Son of Man is to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay everyone for what has been done.
Again, truly I tell you, if two of you agree on earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.
And call no one your father on earth, for you have one Father—the one in heaven.
