We don't need Paul teaching that Peter is in charge. Everybody already knew.
He knew Jesus already said this with his own mouth. Upon you Peter, I will build my Church.
That is why Paul spent went and spent 15 days alone with Peter after his 3 years away. received Peter's approval and instruction.
ll teachers are to be tested by the Scriptures. 1 Cor. 4:6 says, "Now these things, brethren, I have figuratively applied to myself and Apollos for your sakes, that in us you might learn not to exceed what is written, in order that no one of you might become arrogant in behalf of one against the other." Even when Paul emphasized that his writings were the laws of the Lord (1 Cor. 14:37), it was in opposition to what men might claim as laws. The Scriptures, therefore, are the only authority. Any practice not found in them is of human origin and is, therefore, false.
Whom in the foundation of your church was given authority to exceed what was written?
