Did Jesus Ask Peter What He Believed Before He Invited Him to Follow?

Following Christ

As God in the flesh, Jesus already knew what Peter believed. Following Jesus meant more to Peter than just walking behind him. It meant he accepted what Jesus believed and how He lived. Jesus lived a clean life, so Peter was committing himself to the same. As for fear over the General Conference, I Peter 3:17 says “... For it is better … to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.” Peter was not perfect, but he did much good. He was used mightily by God. Peter did his best to avoid evil. Those supporting normalizing same-sex relationships (or accepting abortion for that matter) should consider doing good instead. Then when you suffer, it will be for doing good instead of evil. The Devil has a retirement plan, but God offers a much better one to those willing to repent and lead a new life!
