When Paul Corrected Peter
The American Spectator ^ | September 25, 2013 | George Neumayr

Posted on 09/29/2013 1:45:04 PM PDT by ebb tide

Laity and clergy should reject, respectfully, the liberalism of Pope Francis.

In St. Paul’s Letter to the Galatians, he wrote that he rebuked the first pope, St. Peter, “to his face because he clearly was wrong.” The issue was St. Peter’s capitulation to Jewish culture in his approach to the Gentiles. St. Paul moved swiftly to correct him for the sake of the early Church’s unity and doctrinal fidelity to Jesus Christ.

And Peter made the speech.

“And Peter made the speech.”


And James made the decision :)

James only spoke to the people of Jerusalem. Peter was the Pope.

Straight from the Bible!

Acts 15


 

1 But some men came down from Judea and were teaching the brethren, "Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved." 2 And when Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and debate with them, Paul and Barnabas and some of the others were appointed to go up to Jerusalem to the apostles and the elders about this question. 3 So, being sent on their way by the church, they passed through both Phoeni'cia and Sama'ria, reporting the conversion of the Gentiles, and they gave great joy to all the brethren. 4 When they came to Jerusalem, they were welcomed by the church and the apostles and the elders, and they declared all that God had done with them. 5 But some believers who belonged to the party of the Pharisees rose up, and said, "It is necessary to circumcise them, and to charge them to keep the law of Moses." 6 The apostles and the elders were gathered together to consider this matter. 7 And after there had been much debate, Peter rose and said to them, "Brethren, you know that in the early days God made choice among you, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the gospel and believe. 8 And God who knows the heart bore witness to them, giving them the Holy Spirit just as he did to us; 9 and he made no distinction between us and them, but cleansed their hearts by faith. 10 Now therefore why do you make trial of God by putting a yoke upon the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear? 11 But we believe that we shall be saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, just as they will." 12 And all the assembly kept silence

Yes, he's a liberal. I should have known it right off, since he's a Jesuit, but I gave him the benefit of the doubt.

Now my suspicions are confirmed. He's a clueless liberal sap.

I still disagree. My priest who celebrates a very reverent Novus Ordo was Jesuit educated.

He told us at Daily Mass that Jesuits are always edge, sort of spekaing in riddles, but right on the edge, in order to make you think.

Didn’t you see the speech he gave to obstetricians and gynecologists the next day, where he soundly trounced abortion?

Please look for it.

Ah, but the Pope when speaking on matters of doctrine is supposed to be infallible.

Of course I accept no pope, and this biblical history of the rebuke of Peter illustrates why very well.

Peter was an apostle, a godly man, but not the head of the church. Jesus is head of the church, and needs no ambassador. Jesus is the Mediator between God and man; there is no Mediator between us and the Mediator.

Jesus knew he wasn’t going to be on earth in person, so he chose Peter as the head of the Apostles, yes, the first Pope.

I can’t tell from this article what this pope has done that the author finds objectionable. That is not the quality of writing one tends to find in the American Spectator.

“Jesus knew he wasn’t going to be on earth in person, so he chose Peter as the head of the Apostles, yes, the first Pope.”

Jesus actually set up elders/bishops (church government), and left us the Bible, and sent the Holy Spirit.

No popes.

This is the replacement I got a couple years ago

It's perfectly made, obviously with great care, and very tough.

The other one faded quickly, was very thin fabric, tore easily, and had very weak, poorly stitched, seams.

Regards

I like that! Whites don’t stay white at my house very well, though. Maybe if it came in beige with navy blue print ...

Quality can be a problem. Elen had a Pope John Paul II shirt, and I had to get her a new one this year because the print came off in the wash. The publishers really need to make some new ones: they’re still using designs from when he was still Pope!

I know what you mean. I have a mug with a Benedict XVI quote on it and it's stared to fade after just a year.

OTOH I have mugs that have a good glaze and the image is still like new after 20 years. I think everything fading fast started with the web driven "price is everything" perspective and companies settled into the lowest common denominator without giving the buyer a choice.

CafePress has shirts similar to the one I posted in , IIRC, Athletic Gray with red or "gold" letters and light blue with navy, but I could be thinking of a T not a golf shirt

You are partyly right and partly wrong. The first bishops were the Apostles. Christ gave the keys of the kingdom to Peter and said he would build his church on him.

It’s in the Bible.....or did your Bible take that out?
