The Epistle to 1 Peter

Allow me to say a couple of things about the author of this epistle Apostle Peter.

In the beginning of my conversion, that was about forty-five years ago, I used to run behind exciting preachers. One of such preachers was Oral Roberts. His famous line in preaching was "net breaking-boat sinking" catch. It was from an incident that Jesus did a miracle for Simon Peter to catch two boatsful of fishes, following an empty net just before that. Oral Roberts was running after the "net breaking-boat sinking" catch of fish, but not after Jesus Christ. I did not know what I was running after. But I was excited. He preached from Luke 5:1-7, and he made sure that he stopped at verse 7, where both ships began to sink with the net breaking catch, and he did not go further. That was good enough for him, and we were also rejoiced. ["Luke 5:1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, 2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. 3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. 4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. 6 And when they had this done, they enclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. 7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. 8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. 9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken: 10 And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men. 11 And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him."] After a few years, when I began to study scriptures by myself, I knew that there are more to the same story. Simon Peter, his brother Andrew, James, and John, who were partners in the fishing business, owned both boatsful of fishes, which Oral Roberts loved to own. Oral Roberts did not get it, but they got it. Oral Roberts was making money by telling this story and deceiving people, but Jesus did give him neither money nor fishes. But Peter and his partners got two boatsful of fishes. Do you know what did they do with the fishes? They forsook them all and regarded them as nothing. All the four of them walked behind Jesus Christ as his servants. The head of the four men was Peter. He rejected the fortune.

Looking for the true gospel? This site has the true gospel!

What is the true gospel and what are false gospels?

Matthew 28:20, & Mark 16:15. Jesus Christ preached his commandments to obey, as his Gospel; it is the true Gospel to inherit Eternal life. Genesis 3:1-4 & 2 Corinth 11:2-4. But Preachers, who are Serpents of Satan, preach the life of man Jesus just to believe, but not to live as a chaste virgin, as the gospel; it is another gospel, which cannot and will not give Eternal life.

What will the true Gospel do?

The true gospel will convert evil people to do good and thereby they will inherit the kingdom in heaven. John 3:19-21 say that people are two kinds, evil and true. Evil doers will not come to the Light, who is God; but people of truth come to God for their deeds to be made manifest. We have good and evil people by our standard of our society or culture. These evil people may be converted to be doers of truth by the power of God, and they may inherit the kingdom of God in heaven.
