What about Matthew 23 and calling no man rabbi?

1Then spoke Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 2Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: 3All therefore whatever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not you after their works: for they say, and do not. 4For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 5But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, 6And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. 8But be not you called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all you are brothers. 9And call no man your father on the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. 10Neither be you called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. 11But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12And whoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

Yeshua warns us about the rabbis and tells us to call no man such.  I believe that speaks to putting oneself under teaching.  We have a warning.  We have fruit.  Bad fruit.  We have a new year being called in the fall season when Torah is clear in stating the start of the year in Exodus 12:2.  Ok, the start of the new year is wrong but I am sure they have the day reckoned correctly.  ???  At the very least, I submit that the even to even reckoning be thoroughly investigated.  It ain’t quite natural in view of my simple farm life.
