Bellarmine on St. Peter at the Council of Jerusalem
St. Robert Bellarmine, On Councils, Book 1, Chap. 19: “[The primacy of the popes at councils] is proven from the Apostolic Council, in Acts 15, in which Jerome affirms Peter to have presided in a letter to Augustine, which is 11 among the letters of Augustine. Likewise from that [council] it is gathered that Peter rises first, speaks first, defines the matter first, and all, as Jerome said, followed his position.”

AS PIUS IX SAID, "IT IS UNLAWFUL to inquire” about whether there is any kind of baptism other than water Baptism. Jesus makes it clear that UNBELIEF in His Words CONDEMNS, and it is the only alternative to Faith/Baptism, i.e. there are only 2 choices.
