The Catholics never did bother to ask Peter what he thought of Christ calling him a stone:
1Pe 2:3-10 If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. (4) To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, (5) Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. (6) Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. (7) Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, (8) And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. (9) But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: (10) Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
Act 4:10-12 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. (11) This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. (12) Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Christ is the chief cornerstone, and Christians are “lively” stones who share in that structure (the body of Christ) of which Christ is chief. Christ’s message to Peter was a faith message, in response to his affirmation that Jesus is the Christ, not a claim that Peter was now the Rock of the church with power and authority equal to Jesus Christ. Even Paul opposed Peter “to his face” over the controversy involving the segregation of gentiles from Jews, and there is no reason to think that the Apostles each operated, though in cooperation, often interdependently, and each operated with the same authority in the casting out of devils (which all Christians possess), or even the occasional punishment. As Paul, by the direction of the Holy Spirit, declared that darkness would come on to the eyes of the magician.
“and there is no reason to think that the Apostles *did not* each operate, though in cooperation, often *independently*”
In anticipation of your comment, I posted the more in depth explanation (see #2) for a reason. Please go back and re read it before refuting it.
You’re wasting your time. FR catholics love their denomination more than they love Jesus.
