True Petrine Ministry
Clarifying the Role of the Successors
of St. Peter, since...
Jesus Christ is the True Rock
which the Church was founded
Before digesting the contents of this brief document, we invite the
visitors reader to familiarize themselves with our full endorsement
of the Catholic Faith. (1)
Jesus Christ clearly and unequivocally named Peter the Administrative
Head, the Cephas, of the institution that would lead the
Mystical Body of Christ, the Church, on Earth. This was confirmed
by St. Paul through many of his writings (2).
The true and only Head of the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church, is
Jesus Christ and no one else. To deny this reality is to deny the Holy
Scriptures. To deny the Word of God is to deny God and our Savior,
Jesus Christ, the Word of God Incarnate.
The Roman Catholic Faithful has become very sensitive about the
function and titles of the Bishop of Rome - the Pope. Of course, this
has not been a random occurrence; this has been programmed by those who
want to utilize the Papacy to further their own very worldly agendas.
This is quite similar with what the Vatican power seekers of
centuries past did by producing a false document, the falsification
Donation of Constantine (3). By means of said
document the western world was made to believe that Emperor Constantine
had willed the Roman Empire to the Successors of Peter.
ABOUT THE FOUNDATION STONE/ROCK OF THE CHURCH
Assuming that the following Scriptural reading...
Simon Peter said in reply, "You are
the Messiah, the Son of the Living God..... And so I say to
you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church,...
[Matt. 16: 16-18]
...was not tampered with, then we must ask:
Who is then the "Rock" upon which the Church was founded?
This was clearly and unequivocally established by the Word of God as
manifested in the Holy Scriptures.
The Rock / The Cornerstone
In 1 Corinthians 10:4 we read:
...and all drank the same
spiritual drink, for they drank from a spiritual rock that followed
them, and the rock was the Christ.
In Romans 9:33 we read:
...as it is written: "Behold I am
laying a stone in Zion that will make people stumble and a rock
that will make them fall, and whoever believes in him shall not be
put to shame."
In Ephesians 2:20 we read:
...built upon the foundation of
the apostles and prophets, with Jesus Christ himself as the corner
In 1 Peter 2:8 we read:
...and "A stone that will make
people stumble, and a rock that will make them fall." ...by
disobeying the word...
At this point it is appropriate to point out that the same Biblical
scene described in Matthew 16:16-18 is only mentioned in one other
Gospel - that of Luke:
And he said to them: But whom do
you say that I am? Simon Peter answering, said: The Christ of God. But
he strictly charging them, commanded they should tell this to no man
[Luke 9: 20-21]
In Luke's version there is no mention - directly or indirectly
- about who or what was the Church going to rest upon.
The "Head" [Cephas] is one thing; the "Rock" [Kephas] is another.
In 1 Corinthians 9: 2-5 we read:
2 And if unto others I be not an
apostle, but yet to you I am. For you are the seal of my apostleship in
the Lord. 3 My defence with them that do examine me is this. 4 Have not
we power to eat and to drink? 5 Have we not power to carry about a
woman, a sister, as well as the rest of the apostles, and the
brethren of the Lord, and Cephas?
In John 1:42 we read:
Then he brought him to Jesus.
Jesus looked at him and said, "You are Simon the son of John; you
will be called Kephas (or Cephas)."
"Kephas" and "Cephas" do not have the same meaning but their spelling
has allowed much latitude for confusion or outright deceit. "Kephas" =
stone/rock : "Cephas" = head
For example - In the Greek version of the New Testament (4)
1 Corinthians 9:5 the word "Cephas" is shown beginning with a Kappa,
We also read that Cephas is a Syrian surname and that cephalo - head -
is the form of Greek kephale "head," as in cephalopod.
We are not linguistic experts but being quite familiar with the
manipulations of the Vatican to achieve their very worldly agenda,
there is enough confusion about the roots of the words Cephas and
Kephas that the deceit of transforming Simon into the fundamental Rock
of the Church was a very easy procedure - notwithstanding all other
quotations shown above which clearly indicate the the Rock is Jesus
Christ - the Word of God Incarnate.
THE ROCK - In Conclusion
Since all of the above quoted Scriptural Words are copied and
recopied, translated and retranslated as well as manipulated for
centuries, the result is just what the man of iniquity needed to spring
upon humanity the ultimate snare:
Through a carefully orchestrated "tradition", the Bishop of Rome, the
Pope, has been made both, the Rock upon which the Church is founded as
well as the Spiritual Head of the Church.
Why did the man of iniquity need this duality to be so? The answer is
quite simple. The man of iniquity reasoned that if he can control and
manipulate a man who is the Pope, a position whom many innocent
faithful have been made to believe is occupied by a God-like man,
he can lead many to perdition.
The glaring Biblical truth is that the Rock "upon which the Church
is founded" is Christ Whom Simon had just recognized as such as
we read above in Matthew 16: 16-18.
This is not only confirmed by the fact that upon a fallen man, even
a Pope, a Divine Edifice like the Church, the Mystical Body of Christ,
cannot be founded, but also by the above cited words to the
Corinthians, Romans and Ephesians by Paul, as well as Peter's own
We would have to ignore 2,000 years of error-plagued applied
Christianity, and all the errors of many of the Popes since the
beginning (5), to believe that God would set the
foundations of His Church on such weak support - fallen man - any
In the rush to make Peter the foundation of the Church, it was
ignored that Jesus Christ clearly and unequivocally named Peter the
Administrative Head, the Cephas - not the Kephas,
of the institution that would lead the Mystical Body of Christ,
the Church, on Earth as Paul also confirmed.
The true and only Head of the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church,
is Jesus Christ and no one else.
We shall close this section with the Words of the Master - Jesus
24 Every one therefore that
heareth these my words, and doth them, shall be likened to a wise man
that built his house upon a rock, 25 And the rain fell, and the floods
came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell
not, for it was founded on a rock. 26 And every one that heareth
these my words, and doth them not, shall be like a foolish man that
built his house upon the sand, 27 And the rain fell, and the floods
came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell,
and great was the fall thereof. [Matthew 7]
Those who fundament their faith upon what the Church Administrators say
and not on the Holy Word of God (6) will,
as the Church is purified (7), collapse just as
a house that is built on sand.
ABOUT PAPAL INFALLIBILITY
To ensure that satan's plan would be as perfect as possible, man was
enticed to define and proclaim the concept of Infallibility. No one
checked that such claim did not even apply to St. Peter, as it is
clearly illustrated in the letter of Paul to the Galatians:
When Peter came to Antioch, I
opposed him to his face, because he was clearly in the wrong....
The other Jews joined him in his hypocrisy,... When I saw that they
were not acting in line with the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter
in front of them all, "You are a Jew, yet you live like a Gentile and
not like a Jew. How is it, then, that you force Gentiles to follow
Jewish customs?...[Galatians 2: 11-21]
This rejection of "blanket Papal infallibility" was confirmed on Dec.
7, 1965, when, a day before closing the Council, Paul VI and
Athenagoras I made a joint declaration in which they mutually deplored
and lifted the excommunication that were pronounced in 1054 and
that gave rise to the schism between the Churches of the East and the
This rejection was later confirmed by no less than H.H. John Paul II
himself during the Jubilee Year. During the course of this year, H.H.
John Paul II repeatedly asked forgiveness from God for the past and
present faults of the children of the Church. Many of those "faults",
read: "sins", committed were either committed by or approved by the
Pope of the particular era (3) in question.
INFALLIBILITY - In Conclusion
It should then be clear, to even the most feeble minded individual,
that an Infallible Pope would not make mistakes, yet they were many and
very serious mistakes made over the last 2000 years starting with
Peter as we have illustrated above.
Therefore, Papal Infallibility, in terms that the Pope is
infallible in everything he does and/or say, falls in the
same category of the already mentioned Donation of Constantine (3).
A myth to consolidate the Temporal Power of the Pope - something that
Jesus Christ Himself rejected from the beginning:
...give to Caesar what belongs to
Caesar and to God what belongs to God.
For an in depth evaluation of the claim of Infallibility visit our
document addressing this issue at length. (8)
In here lies the reality of the Petrine Ministry which H.H.
John Paul II was trying to correctly define - a job started by H.H.
John XXIII and continued by H.H. Paul VI. A definition which is
completely acceptable to the Eastern Church. H.H. John Paul II
was prevented from doing by the Temporal Power Brokers of the Church.
The Bishop of Rome, the Pope, was unquestionably named the
Administrative Head, the Cephas, (Leader) of the institution that would
lead the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church, in its journey through
We realize that the above will cause much consternation among some
Roman Catholics but, as we have said before, we do not exist to please
people, but to please God [Paraphrasing Galatians 1:10]. What we write
and say is only to be "seen" and "heard" by those who have "eyes to
see" and "ears to hear" (9).
Once H.H. John Paul concluded his Pontificate, all that we have
discussed in this document only has a historic value since John Paul II
was the last legitimate Successor of Peter.
