There IS something wrong with this picture! The Apostle Peter knew better than this. He would never have taken on such lavish grandiosity to himself. He walked with the Lord Jesus Christ, and knew very well the teachings of the Lord to have a servant’s attitude toward others.
“But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.
But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;
And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:
Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.Matthew 20:25-28
It should be obvious to anyone that so-called “Popes” bear no resemblance to either the Apostle Peter, or the Lord Jesus Christ. Apparently the Roman Catholic Church made this stuff up as they went along, because the Apostle Peter didn’t practice or teach Roman Catholic man made doctrine, and neither did the Lord Jesus Christ. Let’s get back to the basics of Truth and the bedrock of Christianity, the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, and not man made doctrines. “Traditions” do not trump the Holy Scriptures.
See? This is NOT the example the Lord Jesus Christ, or the Apostle Peter left. I pray that all Catholics will pray and see the truth of the gospel, and get past what they were taught, to read the Bible for themselves and to be set free from the bondage of the Catholic church.
Amen! And Peter even took his wife along with him on his ministry trips.
4 Do we have no right to eat and drink? 5 Do we have no right to take along a believing wife, as do also the other apostles, the brothers of the Lord, and Cephas? 1 Corinthians 9:4-5
This passage also points out that the Lord Jesus Christ had brothers. His mother Mary had other children through her husband Joseph. So she was not a perpetual virgin as claimed by some in the RCC. She was a virgin though when she gave birth to her first born Son Jesus Christ. Amen!
Also, Peter was married and had a wife.
Jesus Heals at Peter’s House
(Mark 1:29-34; Luke 4:38-41)
“14And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever. 15And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them. 16When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: 17That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses”.
You can trust and believe in the Bible to find out the truth.
