Peter Denied his Lord because he was a Coward.. Afraid of Being Killed. Peter was/is nothing but a hypocrite, to me anyway. I don't know if that's the Peter (The Rock) if it was, Jesus probably thought, what the Hell was I thinking!
Good point.

There are two ways to take the Pslam, "Pride goeth before a fall".

1. False Pride precedes failure.
2. Real Pride leaves before failure.

Both are quite evident in real life.

I find the story of the disciples hiding and denying Jesus to be either ridiculous or that the disciples were worthless scumbags.

Real men would have hung beside him on the cross, even if he was just a dear friend or beloved leader and nothing else. That they allegedly watched and documented His miracles and understood His teachings for over a year and then ran away is IMHO a complete denial of who and what Jesus was.

And because they cannot seem to suppress us all here to their bidding, the TV Evangelicals have gone to Africa to get their "Kill the Gays" law passed.
They are as sick and evil, as sick and evil gets.
Hate is the poison to the soul. And they sure do love that poison of hate.
Why do they care who is or isn't gay??
Men on this site have stated they fantasize about female on female sex..
- yet, would bash upon a male on male love affair- sex.

Seems pretty selfish to me..self serving Christians.;
Not What Jesus Would Do.

yes they are... brings a different meaning to deut 22-5!
"The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God." Deut. 22:5

Note the use of the word "abomination". The same as describes homosexuality (and whole lot of other things).

Doesn't that mean that women who wear pants are just as "evil" as gays ?

More of the cut and paste Bible of Modern Christianity.

or did peter deny knowing Jesus because it was meant to be? in that case Peter had no choice.
Just like Judas, he had no choice.
Just like the blind man in John 9:3
"Neither this man nor his parents sinned," said Jesus, "but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.
another example is Jeremiah 1:5
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."
You are bringing up the 4000 year old unsolved contradiction between freewill and God's Will.

False praise or real accomplishment ?

Nathan Phelps issues statement on the death of his father
The website Recovering From Religion has issued a press release sharing Nathan Phelps statement on the death of his father, Fred Phelps.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 24 2014 – On behalf of Nathan Phelps, son of former Westboro Baptist Church leader Fred Phelps, Recovering From Religion issues the following official statement:
“Fred Phelps is now the past. The present and the future are for the living. Unfortunately, Fred’s ideas have not died with him, but live on, not just among the members of Westboro Baptist Church, but among the many communities and small minds that refuse to recognize the equality and humanity of our brothers and sisters on this small planet we share. I will mourn his passing, not for the man he was, but for the man he could have been. I deeply mourn the grief and pain felt by my family members denied their right to visit him in his final days. They deserved the right to finally have closure to decades of rejection, and that was stolen from them.
Even more, I mourn the ongoing injustices against the LGBT community, the unfortunate target of his 23 year campaign of hate. His life impacted many outside the walls of the WBC compound, uniting us across all spectrums of orientation and belief as we realized our strength lies in our commonalities, and not our differences. How many times have communities risen up together in a united wall against the harassment of my family? Differences have been set aside for that cause, tremendous and loving joint efforts mobilized within hours…and because of that, I ask this of everyone – let his death mean something. Let every mention of his name and of his church be a constant reminder of the tremendous good we are all capable of doing in our communities.
The lessons of my father were not unique to him, nor will this be the last we hear of his words, which are echoed from pulpits as close as other churches in Topeka, Kansas, where WBC headquarters remain, and as far away as Uganda. Let’s end the support of hateful and divisive teachings describing the LGBT community as “less than,”“sinful,” or “abnormal.” Embrace the LGBT community as our equals, our true brothers and sisters, by promoting equal rights for everyone, without exception. My father was a man of action, and I implore us all to embrace that small portion of his faulty legacy by doing the same.”
Thanks for this, Seen.

Through this sons heartache he obviously knew right from wrong..
Bravo to this family. I hope they can now begin to heal.
This is an outstanding statement written by Nathan Phelps.

Ding Dong- the witch is dead.

Is judging others while telling them not to judge any better? Is that acceptable yet letting people throw insults at each other is not? And believe me if you call one side down then calling the other down is only fair, or at least should be done.

I got tired of calling Christians down only to have non believers be nasty to them. I told them I was through calling them down for them to do their own dirty work.

That does not apply to all situations. Some like Annie, Rider, Mac, etc… are some that can not agree but don’t go around being nasty about it all the time.(Sorry, I’m not meaning to leave anyone out).

You're pretty nasty yourself, did you think it wasn't noticeable because you're passive aggressive about it?

You didn't intervene. I haven't read one of his comments for over a year now.

He's now quite right. You can figure that out by yourself if you want or take my advice.
