acts 14:14+

But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of this, they tore their clothes and rushed out into the crowd, shouting:

Friends, why are you doing this? We too are only human, like you. We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made the heavens and the earth and the sea and everything in them.

Acts 9:31-32 The CHURCH THROUGHOUT all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria was at peace. It was being built up and walked in the fear of the Lord, and with the consolation of the holy Spirit it grew in numbers.

As PETER was passing THROUGH EVERY REGION, he went down to the holy ones living in Lydda.
Paul went on a bunch of missionary journeys, and preached in dozens of cities. He wrote half the NT.....does that mean he was pope?

No, Peter was in charge.
So, travelling THROUGHOUT the empire, preaching the Gospel, as Paul did, does not make a man a pope--does it? So, the verses you quoted that showed Peter doing the same are not proof HE was a pope, either--are they?

Paul traveled and preached the Gospel at least as much as Peter did, plus, Paul wrote far more of what became Scripture than Peter did....AND rebuked Peter to his face for his hypocrisy. He had to have authority from Jesus to do that.


Peter certainly was a leader, but NOT all by himself. There were many with authority, throughout the empire. Not just Peter.

Chuckle!!! and now all you've got is Bergoglio, and his phony "Apostolic succession" fantasy.
Well, King Saul, for one example, was insane, wasn't he?
God's people had many bad leaders but that didn't remove their status as God's Chosen People, did it?

God removed His good spirit from Saul because of His disobedience.

The RCC has not had God's Spirit for hundreds of years, if it ever did. It has been teaching error for hundreds of years. Teaching contrary to Scripture. Adding to Scripture. Shameful.
