The foundation rock of Christ’s church is himself as Christ, the Son of the living God

There is a a very common misinterpretation obviously pushed by the Roman Catholic Church, which conveniently also mostly skips over the passages that also talk about his brothers and sisters, but reading the passage in context you get the real deal.

Founding a church on Peter is about as reliable as his sinking into the water when his faith faltered in the sea, and his three denials of Christ before the cock crowed. That kind of “foundation” is like the house that Jesus said was shaky sandy ground, that collapses at the first wind of a corrupt organization that on the whim of its political hierarchy bans the Bible in which supposed basis for the ROMAN Catholic Church was founded.

Okay, let’s see now, upon what rock did Paul say was the “chief corner stone”:

Ephesians 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

So what was Jesus talking about with Peter?

Matthew 21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

Okay look again at Matthew 16, where Jesus used Peter’s name –which Jesus had given him– to make the point that his fact of who Jesus Christ is –The Christ, the Son of the living God— he would build his church:

Matthew 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
