St. Peter, First Pope Comments

Simon Peter or Cephas, the first pope, Prince of the Apostles, and founder, with St. Paul, of the see of Rome. Peter was a native of Bethsaida, near Lake Tiberias, the son of John, and worked, like his brother St. Andrew, as a fisherman on Lake Genesareth. Andrew introduced Peter to Jesus, and Christ called Peter to become adisciple. In Luke is recounted the story that Peter caught so large an amount of fish that he fell down before the feet of ...

    Apostle Peter was not a Pope. He is just an apostle. if he was a pope, when was the time was that he was declared as a Pope? is there any record that he declared linus as the next pope? its not biblical! you cannot find any verse in the Bible speaking about pope. you just misinterpret Matt.16:18. Jesus says in Matthew 23:9 Call no man your father upon earth. Another honorary title. The scribes delighted to be called Abba, father. So the priests of the Roman Catholic Church. So do all who welcome such honorary titles as Pope, Rev. Right Rev. Lord Bishop, etc. These are all forbidden. No apostle was ever so called.
    The Jewish rabbis were also called father and master, by their several disciples, whom they required, To believe implicitly what they affirmed, without asking any farther reason; To obey implicitly what they enjoined, without seeking farther authority. Our Lord, therefore, by forbidding us either to give or receive the title of rabbi, master, or father, forbids us either to receive any such reverence, or to pay any such to any but God.
    this is very clear statement. this is "Blasphemy" to our God the only "FATHER".

    My son and I accessed this sight to help us discern a confirmation saint. Our Parish has nominated this site (through the Diocesan Office). May I please suggest that information that is easier for children to understand-perhaps broken into sections under headings like a description of their personal holiness, examples of their faith in action, interesting details about their life etc.
