A stunning video has been released that seems to demonstrate that the work of the Holy Spirit is beginning to absolutely wreck the worldview of famed author and academic Jordan Peterson.
Peterson, who calls himself a “pragmatic Christian,” claims to follow the teachings of Jesus as best he understands them and holds that the First Century rabbi’s moral philosophy forms a superior and worthy ethos to live a virtuous life. Peterson, however, denies the inspiration of Scripture, the deity of Christ, and the resurrection (in other words, he’s no more a Christian than was Martin Luther King, Jr).
In truth, Peterson is the thought leader of our age. A promoter of logic, reason, and general sanity, he has gutted the anti-intellectual emotionalism of the political left and has done so through a secularist worldview.
Jordan Peterson has gleaned more understanding about God and his created order from natural revelation than leftist Christians have gleaned about God and his created order from special revelation. Probably more so than any man has ever articulated it, Peterson has taken natural revelation as far as it can be taken, and now seems to be grasping for more.
Now, during one of his podcasts, timestamped and lasting for about 4 minutes, he talks about this clash between two worldviews – at one point his chin quivering and tearing up in what is a powerful emotional struggle to reconcile these two worldviews and realities.
To some degree, the conscience can be viewed as the voice of reciprocal society within, and that’s a perfectly reasonable biological explanation. But the thing is, is the deeper you go into biology the more it shades into something that appears to be religious, because you start analyzing the fundamental structure of the psyche itself, and it becomes something with a power that transcends your ability to resist it.
[Speaking about people who tend to say that Jesus is just another mythical Christ figure like Mithras or Horus:]
The difference between those mythological gods and Christ [is that there is] a historical representation of his existence as well… and so what you have in the figure of Christ is an actual person who actually lived, plus a myth, and in some sense, Christ is the union of those two things.
The problem is, I probably believe that, but I don’t know…I’m amazed at my own belief and I don’t understand it. Like because I’ve seen – sometimes, the objective world and the narrative world touch. You know, that’s union synchronicity. And I’ve seen that many times in my own life. And so in some sense, I believe it’s undeniable we have a narrative sense of the world. For me that’s been the world of morality, that’s the world that tells us how to act. It’s real. Like we treat it like it’s real. It’s not the objective world. But the narrative and the objective world touch and the ultimate example of that in principle is supposed to be Christ.
But I don’t know what to – that seems to me oddly plausible. But I still don’t know what to make of it. It’s too – partly because it’s too terrifying a reality to fully believe, I don’t even know what would happen to you if you fully believed it.
If you fully believed in Christ, the biblical revelation of who he is and what he demands – all of it – you would be born again.
Pray for Jordan Peterson.
A CALL TO ACTION
Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by consorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
