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!
Hey PM
To not do things that are wrong or learn things is good as is keeping ourselves fit but we have to be careful. Humans are prone to get too prideful and start relying on ourselves and without really realizing it leave God out of it.

Yes it was Peter the rock. I think Peter said it with love and meant it but after seeing what was happened did chicken out. Jesus knew it would happen and forgave him.

I am sure she is, but it takes a real POS to say that to someone that has shared a private matter like that..

You're concerned, and that's admirable. Sometimes, things aren't what they appear to be. Let me try and explain.
It's common knowledge around here that River has an artificial leg. She's talked about it for years. Dr. Shrink has probably made that same comment multiple times, so it has no effect, never really did. Shrink does what he does - why?- who knows, but if you talk to him with a civil tongue, you'll get a civil answer.
As River Tam is fond of saying, "It's just a game."

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 ?

Well, your opinion is based on ignorance, hatred and deceit so... Enjoy Hell. You have the reward for your ego.
