Why would I say it gives more of a reason that Peter is in charge?
In the Luke verse where Jesus sent out the 72? All of whom had equal authority?and yet, all we were discussing was the possibility that 'popes' were involved
Sorry, wrong thread. My bad. We are leaving on a cruise to Bermuda tomorrow and I have a lot on my mind.We are only on post 95
The preaching in a Roman Catholic Church pulpit is more authoritative and less the Word of God, because the limits of variation in belief are so much more precisely drawn.Way to go to defend your non-leader. I fully admit that I am by no means perfect. That is why I subscribe to the notion of simul justus et peccator. But Peter was not merely "imperfect." He deviated from the Gospel. Rather than acting as a true leader of God's church, he behaved like a drunkard, intoxicated by the spiritual drug called legalism. He had to be awakened and corrected. We all make mistakes. But to preach another gospel than the one delivered to mankind through Christ is a perilous mistake. No true Christian leader does that.
Paul met with Peter in Jerusalem. Or do you mean...and what did you get out of Galatians 1 with regard to Peter?
