John, If I am not mistaken was the Bishop to the churches in Asia Minor which became the Orthodox Church as we know it today.<quoted text>
His unsolicited comment re: St. John was in response to my posting of several scripture passages in support of St. Peter's leadership in the early Church, a belief which is held by the Orthodox Church as well. Blessings.
Peter if we are to believe [his] words(not the false teaching of Catholicism) was in Babylon Preaching to the Jews who lived there, which is according to the Bible as Peter was the Apostle to the Jewish Nation.
Of course, the catholics will counter that Peter preached to Cornelius a Gentile,. but this is easily refuted for ONE simple reason. Paul was Not yet converted, and with Peter and Cornelius, all things are done in Gods time, not ours.
