Who is the True Foundation of the True Church? Peter or Christ?

Peter does not allow to be worship. Yet the Catholic Pope is being likened
to the Almighty God. The Catholic Authorities even go beyond and say that
God is obedient to them. Imagine such BLASPHEMOUS teachings.

Things that Catholics should know about and consider. Feel free to comment if there's something you believe is not true on points being raised here.

One of the pillars created by the Vatican on which they base their religious authority is called "Apostolic Succession". I'm sure you will agree with that.

They claim Peter was the first Pope therefore everything hinges on Peter.

They have St. Peters Basilica,  the chair of St. Peter, the keys of St. Peter., Sts. Peters square etc.

Matthew 16:18 "Thou art Peter,  and upon this rock I will build by church: and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."

The Roman Catholic theologians claim that Jesus made Peter,  the rock upon which He would build His church… Making Peter the first Pope.

But there is no mention of Peter being the pope in this verse or in any other verses in the scriptures.  Is Peter really the foundation of the true church?  

Did Peter himself mentioned that this is so? No, Peter did not

Did Peter ever taught that he is the foundation of the true church? or any apostles for that matter? No, Peter never did

The Papacy,  its priesthood and the whole Roman Catholic system hinges on their interpretation but when subjected to the TRUTH WRITTEN in the scriptures. That Catholic teaching will NOT STAND.

For the TRUE FOUNDATION of the Church is not Peter but Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 3:11 "For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ."

The True Church was founded upon Jesus Christ. There is NO other NAME under heaven given to men by which we must be SAVED. Thats how IMPORTANT the NAME of our Lord Jesus Christ is. 

The Catholic Authorities call upon the name of Christ but ABANDONED the name of His church which bares HIS NAME. 
Acts 4:10-12 ESV 10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by him this man is standing before you well. 11 This Jesus  is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone. 12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is NO OTHER NAME under HEAVEN given among men by which we must be SAVED.”

Christianity started in Jerusalem not in Rome.

Paul was the apostle to the Gentiles Romans 11:13

It was Paul who wrote the epistle to the Christians in Rome

In, fact,  in the book of Romans,  Paul salutes over 25 different members of the church at Rome but never mentions Peter. (Romans Chapter 16)

Paul wrote many of his epistles while he was imprisoned in Rome and yet he never mentions Peter being there…because he wasn't.

Peter was in Jerusalem.  He was the apostle to the Jews Galatians 2:7

Why would Paul need to write to them to instruct them if Peter was there?

When the apostle and elders met in Jerusalem to decide how to handle the question of circumcision, James was IN CHARGE.  Peter spoke,  but it was James who handed down the decision.  

It is clear that Peter did not have the position of absolute authority.

Paul spoke of James also as a pillar (Galatians 2:9-14)  but rebuked Peter to the face because he was in error.  

Peter wasn't infallible and wasn't a pope.  The Bible or scriptures never taught that he was pope.  There's no mention about Peter being a pope.

Peter never was a pope nor was there a papacy in his time.  He even had a wife (Matthew 8:14; Mark 1:30)
Matthew 8:14 ESV14 And when Jesus entered Peter's house, he saw his mother-in-law lying sick with a fever. 
What kind of spirit does the Catholic Authorities have when they taught and FORBID their PRIEST to MARRY? Is it a teaching from the Almighty?

1 Timothy 4:1-3  Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons,2 through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared, who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.

Those devoting themselves to DECEITFUL SPIRITS and TEACHING OF DEMONs will FORBID MARRIAGE. Catholic Authorities as we know FORBID their PRIEST to MARRY. Did you ever WONDER why that is?

That is the teaching of the apostles for the TRUE FOLLOWERs to KNOW who are those who follow or devote themselves to DECEITFUL SPIRITS.

The Iglesia Ni Cristo is not in anyway attacking the Catholic but EXPOSING the DECEPTION or TEACHING OF DEMONs thru the TRUTH written in the scriptures. 

I was a Catholic then and I did not take it against the INC. The scriptures are for those who are truly seeking the TRUTH and wished to be guided by it. 

I was rather THANKFUL and GRATEFUL to have known the TRUTH. And uncovered the deception that these DECEITFUL SPIRITs have been doing to the Catholics.

Remember this, the WORK of these DECEITFUL SPIRITs is simply TO DECEIVE you from knowing the TRUTH.

For Catholic Authorities and its defenders however well they come up with explanations and reasoning. The simple truth is that those who FORBID MARRIAGE are those who are devoting themselves to DECEITFUL SPIRITS and TEACHINGS OF DEMONs. That is how you identify and be AWARE of them.

I don't know about you but FORBIDDING MARRIAGE is a TEACHING OF DEMONs. Its either your against it or FOR IT.  

This is just one of the many reasons I left the Catholic Faith when I discovered that deception. Who wouldn't? As many of the catholics did before me and joined the Iglesia Ni Cristo. It may be HURTFUL to HEAR these things and most often wrongful

Remember the deception offered by the snake to Adam and Eve. The commandment of God was clear but the snake gave and offered his piece as if it had good intention he said YOU WILL NOT SURELY DIE. But it was actually a DECEPTION.
3:1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made.
He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You [1] shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’” But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” - Genesis 3:1-5 ESV
Like the doctrine of the TRINITY by the Catholic Authorities. They say it is in the bible but when asked "what verse in the bible states that term?". Take a clear look at what they are offering and explaining.

Their obvious offer is the the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit is the Trinity. If your not careful you might just accept the DECEPTION. Christ NEVER taught about the TRINITY nor the apostles.

The question is on the term, where is it in the bible? And why would you preach something that the apostles nor Christ DIDNOT teach?

There was no POPE in the time of the apostle nor the term POPE or even a teaching in the scriptures that Peter was a Pope. What would you accept as your foundation? PETER or Christ?

To whose name will the true followers be baptized? in the name of PETER or CHRIST?

Don't wait for Judgement Day to find that out.
