Peter Is NOT The Foundation of the Church
I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will
build my church;
and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." —Matthew 16:18

The Roman Catholic religion sinfully teaches that Jesus appointed the Apostle Peter as the foundation of the Church. Nothing could be further from the truth of God's Word.
Peter means Petros; NOT Petra
Many religious people have been misled to believe that the way to God is through the Church. However, nothing could be further from the truth of God's Word. Jesus clearly stated in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
Some foolishly claim that the Church is representative of Christ, and that we should obey the church in order to follow Christ; however, no such demonic doctrine is found in the Bible. Jesus Christ is the ONLY foundation, the ONLY way to God the Father, and thus; is the ONLY One we should follow.
The name “Peter” in the Greek means “Petros” (i.e., a small stone or rock); BUT, Jesus is referred to as “Petra” (a large rock or mountain). In the original Greek Jesus said, “Thou art petros [a little piece of rock], and upon this Petra [bedrock] I will build my church.” Clearly, Jesus was NOT speaking about Peter, because Peter was only a small stone.
The only true and sure foundation is Jesus Christ, which is plainly stated in 1st Corinthians 3:11, “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
