Consequently the furnace never shuts down because it is constantly calling for heat to reach the thermostat setting.

New batteries were installed in 'all' house thermostats.

Do you think I have a bad thermostat ?

This is common when a furnace is under fired. It might say 90K btu's on the tag, but if the gas line is too small it will only allow whatever the line size does. Have you ever had problems in cold weather before? Could be the thermostat, is it a programmable? Is this a zoned system... check the dampre and make sure it's opened all the way.
