I think Edward, that you misunderstand the depth of my post. I was summarizing the "prophacy" for the sake of adding it to the thread. I wasn't aiming for a PhD researcher's level of accuracy and discussion of it's inflected meanings.
secondly, What you do and don't personally consider to be accurate reports isn't a worry for me, and I would assume most, since you hold precepts in your beliefs which contradict rational thought.
When you originally posted this thread almost two weeks ago, had you considered that Peter the Roman, himself, would respond directly?
As to the specifics of the meaning, Christ said that it would be better for one who leads astray another who believes in Him to tie a heavy stone around his neck and drown himself in the depths of the sea. So as to whether you would like to change the seriousness of the matter, it is not totally up to you now any more, is it?
I have been responding to search results for "Peter the Roman" for about two years now. I have looked such prophecy 'in the eye' and have come to know that the love of Christ shown in His resurrecting those whom He has rescued will not be abated by human judgment stating otherwise.
