Contrary to popular belief I do not think that the post-crucifixion interpretations of Peter and Paul represent Truth with a capital T.
The Truth resides in the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth.
The teachings of open-hearted love, forgiveness, and mercy; of goodness, and justice.....
Jesus was crucified and the light went out of the world.
We were left with a lesser understanding.
Although the disciples may have experienced the Holy Spirit after Jesus' resurrection this was never enough to attain the Truths of the original vision - the revelations given to Jesus - the anointed, the chosen one.
So I do not follow the theologies that derive from Peter and Paul.
I follow the teachings of their master Jesus of Nazareth.
