I guess I shouldn't read any of his epistles any more..

Of course you should...But you should put equal weight on all the other epistles as well...

If Peter was the first pope, Paul would not have pointed out that you not follow Peter to the exclusion of the others...

You assume I don't, where is your basis for assuming that?

"If Peter was the first pope, Paul would not have pointed out that you not follow Peter to the exclusion of the others..."

Paul points out that Christ is being ignored in their contentions in favor of different leaders including himself, He should be the center of their thoughts, these verses have nothing to do with the papacy.

"you not follow Peter to the exclusion of the others"

You don't follow or listen to any of them except for Christ's sake who appointed them:

Mt:28:20: "Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world. "

Of course St. Peter was the first pope. Paul's warning was that we must follow Christ, not any man.
