Don't blame me. I'm just the messenger. I thought the article had a very interesting premise.

(Isa 8:20, Eze 22:26)
"The Roman Catholics claims Peter was the first pope of their church....Is either of these viewpoints correct; or is it just possible BOTH claims are wrong?"
Now I didn't read the whole article, but Peter was the first pope. Regardless of where he was, he was the first pope. It's not a viewpoint, it's a fact.

Is this "Deja Vu".....all over again?
Who are these protestants that claim Paul was never in Rome?
Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Philemon, are commonly believed by many protestants to be written while in prison in Rome.
You represent an extreme fringe of Christian thought, the Judaizer movement. Then you post this cack. It does have lots of exclamation points!!!! and ALL CAPS LETTERS so it must be the truth.
There's so much to pick apart here but I'm just addressing this one point:
This presents the Catholic Church with a considerable problem -- Peter, the first "pope," was not supposed to be married!
Baloney. The New Testament itself notes that Peter had a mother-in-law. Logically speaking, he had a wife at some point. He may have been a widower. It stands to reason he might have had a daughter too. This does not pose any problem to Catholics whatsoever.
"The approximately 25 years between Peter's first and last visit to Rome were spent in evangelizing all corners of the Roman Empire. The man who spent 25 years in the "sacerdotal chair" was the magician from Samaria -- SIMON MAGUS!"
I have a hard time with this in that I would think that the Apostles would have made an uproar about a non-believer running their church. I do believe the historical evidence is pretty clear Peter was not the Bishop of the church in Rome.
