    Uhm....no. Peter (one of Christ's disciples) was the founder of the Roman Catholic Church and the FIRST Pope.

    I hate when peope spread malicious bullshit about the RCC. :rolleyes:

    I am RC. This is what I know to be true about my Church.

    The Roman Catholic Church was founded by the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, some 50 days after Jesus' execution by the Roman Army, circa 30-APR CE. Peter moved to Rome, and became the first Pope of the Christian movement. We believe that he was followed by a continuous succession of Popes up to the present day.

    But couldn't Peter have been swayed by the Romans, after all he did deny Jesus three times.

    Perhaps, but look who carried out His execution..... :eusa_think:

    Maybe Peter subscribed to the old adage, keep your friends close, but your enemies closer? Suppose we'll all find out the whole story when/if we land in Heaven.

    ;)

    Maybe he had a change of heart and the Romans didn't like it so they replaced him.

    You have evidence of this? I'd like to review it if you do.

    I was raised RCC and have spent the last 20 years educating myself on my former religion.

    For almost 400 years, there was a robust debate about the ministry and mission of Christ until the Roman Emperors Theodosius and Constantine ended the debate by picking a winner.
