"And it's just as ludicrous to think that Peter's first in line bishop would have charge over Paul's Gentile church when Peter's ministry was to the Jews...

Of course, you willfully neglect the FACT that the first Gentiles were brought into the Church by Peter, under direct orders from God, and NOT by Paul--which totally demolishes your "argument".

ALL Apostles ministered to ALL Christians. True, Paul went MOSTLY to the Gentiles, mainly because a lot of Jewish Christians felt that he couldn't be trusted due to his early persecutions of them.

your arguement's not with me, it's with God...

Gal 2:7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;
Gal 2:8 (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:)

ALL Apostles ministered to ALL Christians. True, Paul went MOSTLY to the Gentiles, mainly because a lot of Jewish Christians felt that he couldn't be trusted due to his early persecutions of them.

NO...Your church may teach you that but as you can see, God determined who would preach to and teach the Gentiles...And as you can see, it was Paul...So my arguement IS valid...
