Did you read the Scripture quotes?
Would you be saying what you are if you believed in the Bible and what it says about St. Peter?
“Would you be saying what you are if you believed in the Bible and what it says about St. Peter?”
The Bible does not say that Peter is the Chief Cornerstone. You make it sound as if Peter was the most worthy Apostle. And yet, Peter, at least during the Gospels, was one of the ones most interested in Earthly expectations of glory and even denied Christ three times, though he answered for the Apostles that none of them would deny him. In Acts, Peter is an empowered Peter with the Holy Spirit. He is a warrior then, and a spiritual man, not materialistic. But one thing is clear. Peter was not chosen because he was the greatest. He was chosen by God due to no merit of his own, so that Christ would be glorified; not Peter being glorified. Each of us are similarly chosen, each being made “lively stones,” as Peter was and is, who once were dead in materialism and a false sense of spirituality, but now are alive and are a member of a Kingdom not made with hands and not of this world.
