Was Peter Saved Early
No Peter was not saved yet. The Bible says that whoever does not have the Spirit of Christ is not His (Rom 8:9). None of the Disciple had the indwelling Spirit of Christ until He was resurrected. Remember after His resurrection He appeared to them and breathed on them and said "recieve ye the Holy Ghost." (John 20:22)
This was a different experience from the day of pentecost when they Holy Spirit fell on them in acts 2. They could not have been born again until after the death and resurrection of Jesus. That is not to say that they were eneimes of God but to say the time was not right until Jesus paid the price for their sin as well as ours. Blessings,
