The Pope is the Successor of Peter “The Pope is not an invention, and he does not replace Christ. In Mathew 16:18-19, Jesus made it clear that he wanted Peter to lead his Church on earth. Why? Jesus knew that he could die and that everything that he accomplished would be gone without someone to guide his Church. Jesus does not tell Peter that he will replace him; he only states that Peter will be given authority and power to act in his name.” (Catholics: what do they believe)
The Pope is the Supreme head of the Church The Roman Pontiff – the successor of St. Peter as the Bishop of Rome and head of the Church on earth-has full and supreme authority over the universal Church in matters pertaining to faith and morals (teaching authority), discipline and government (jurisdictional authority). The Pope’s authority is on issues concerning faith and morals.” (Catholics Almanac). (The Pope is the head of the Church)
The Pope makes inspired, infallible, and binding edicts upon the Church “The Pope’s words are binding on the Catholic People when he speaks ex cathedra. When the Pope is speaking authoritatively or ex cathedra, he is not alone. As Jesus promised, the Holy Spirit will guide the Pope on his decisions and the Pope also consult as well with the bishops of the Church.” (Jesus, Peter & the Keys, Rev. Hess)
What Catholics teach regarding the Pope 1. The Pope can’t make mistakes on the throne, he can make mistakes off the throne 2. The Pope speaks as God speaks 3. Peter, as the Pope, is the rock Foundation of the Church (Mathew 16:18; Isaiah 22:21-22) 4. Peter is treated as preeminent (supreme) by Jesus (John 21:15-17, Luke 22:32, Acts 1:15, 2:14, 4:8-12, 15:7).

Was Peter the first Pope? Matt 16:17-20 Jesus replied, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven. 18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock, I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." 20 Then he warned his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Christ.

Peter was not the first Pope All disciples were present in Mathew 16:18 All Apostles were present on the Day of Pentecost – Acts 2:14 As the Pope he 1. Denied Christ three times – Mathew 26:69-74 2. Was rebuked by the Apostle Paul – Galatians 2:11 3. Was not head of the Jerusalem council, James was – Acts 15 4. Denied Supremacy – 1 Peter 5:1
Ps 118:22 The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone; Eph 2:20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. 1 Peter 2:4-10 As you come to him, the living Stone — rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him— 5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For in Scripture it says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame." 7 Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, "The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone,“ (Psalm 118:22) 8 and, “A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall." They stumble because they disobey the message — which is also what they were destined for.
