The church wasn't established until 321 AD, centuries after the bible only 12 apostles lived and died.
Fact! From 4 BCE to 30 AD there were dozens of jewish/roman writers, scribes, statesmen, government officials, philosophers, etc. and we have not one story from any of them that a miracle man son of God named Jesus ever lived. Not one testimonial from the supposed thousands of jews who were miraclized or who followed this man as the bible ONLY! stories claim..... Nothing!
something is terribly wrong Simple!

BUSTED!
There were actually 13 Apostles. The 13th, was "decided" upon by the remaining original 11 Apostles, after Judas died.

"Judas, who was guide to those who took Jesus... For he was numbered with us, and received his portion in this ministry... For it is written in the book of Psalms,'Let his habitation be made desolate, Let no one dwell therein', and,'Let another take his office'... So one of the men who have accompanied us during all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning from the baptism of John until the day he was taken up from us, must become with us a witness to his resurrection
—Acts 1:15-26
So, between the ascension of Christ and the day of Pentecost, the remaining apostles elected a twelfth apostle by casting lots, a traditional Israelite way to determine the Will of God.(see Proverbs 16:33) The lot fell upon Matthias."

"to bind and loose"
- metaphor for to gather and to let go freely
- could be compared to making a package secure (bind) and then open a package (loose)
- to ensure and then to pacify
We could come up with many "plausible" explanations to what "bind and loose" actually was meant by the original author.
What do you think it represents? Especially when you delibrately state that certain individuals don't have this capacity or ability.
Please post your citation that states Protestants cannot "bind and loose".
Thanks!
Christ His conferred authority to the apostles, not to everyone.

Protestantism specifically denies the belief of apostolic succession, thus Christ's ministerial authority conferred to the Apostles expired when the last Apostle died.

This being the case, protestants cannot "bind an loose".

So why does Paul consider himself chief of all sinners? Why does Paul talk about the struggle with his flesh? Because Christians still sin and you do too.
Besides...my point is that the Apostles were the same as Christians of today. Sorry you missed it.

BELIEVE WHAT YOU WILL...

I BELIEVE IN THE CLEANSING BLOOD OF JESUS...SORRY IF YOU DON'T.

i BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD that says...

1Jn 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and

--> the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

1Jn_1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and

to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

MY BIBLE SAYS
Eph 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Eph 5:7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
Eph 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
Eph 5:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
Eph 5:10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
Eph 5:12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
Eph 5:13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
---
Joh 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Joh 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Joh 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
___
1Jn 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
I suggest that for a change you use these biblical words against your self ... rather than against others.

Now wouldn't THAT be fun for you as a home-study assignment?

Christ represents the head of His body on earth.

Colossians 1:18

18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.

Christ directs His body.....

The head of Christ's body is in heaven and not on the earth.

No one on earth is the Head of the body, the church.

YOU ASK

Why does Paul talk about the struggle with his flesh...

~~~

OUR SPIRITS..have been redeemed...

but

our flesh will not be redeemed until our resurrection.

Rom 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

Rom 8:23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit,

--> even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

The average born again Christian was not personally selected by Christ while He was among us to be His Apostle, nor is he/she a minister nor is he/she a martyr nor has he/she been appointed personally by Christ to be head of His Church on Earth.
You asked why Peter is held in esteem in Christendom and I told you.


No Christian is called to be anything BUT an Apostle!

Heb 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
Heb 5:13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
Heb 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

You must stop telling people who believe in God they are silly.
You are silly.

You all position your selves as holy servants of god and point at others as servants of evil.

And the very silly part of the issue is that according to scripture the one and only god that you all believe you serve, created evil. So according to that premise ... all people whether evil or holy are serving the same supposed holy and evil god.

Silly stuff in deed!
