Thanks, Will, but I'm still not clear.  Is the error Peter's or Gandhi's
(not following Jesus)?

If Christ is _the_ Truth, then you can only be in line with the Truth if you are in line with Christ. Following the truth of your lives is not the same thing as following Jesus. Or accepting Christ and His words like this, and then adding something to that, serves only to contradict Christ's words. This is the error I was referring to. Anyway, sorry for the muddle.
