Did Jordan Peterson’s Daughter Become a Christian?

Mikhaila Peterson, daughter of famed Psychologist and author Jordan Peterson, revealed on her October 1, 2021 podcast, in conversation with Seamus Coughlin, a devout Roman Cathlolic, artist, animator and creator of ‘Freedom Toons’ that she ‘found God’ and tells of her conversion story.

It’s an interesting story, but there are more than enough red flags that we ought to be cautious with her profession of faith. Bare theism won’t do it it, but rather repetence of sins, faith in the biblical Christ, indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and ongoing sanctification are needed.

Still, this is worthy of much prayer, and shows a fascinating “working out” of a new believer who isn’t immersed in a solid Church with solid and biblically faithful instruction.

I can talk about this because I haven’t talked about it before, but I grew up with dad so I learned a lot about the psychological significance of the bible, the YouTube series, and it was always kind of through that lens, like metaphors. And then I had way too many really absurd experiences that I couldn’t wrap my head around, where I was like, my life doesn’t make any- this doesn’t make any sense. This doesn’t make any sense. This is too weird, too coincidental and that happened for five years like every day.

Then I had some rough experiences over the summer. And about a month ago, I would say- I think I think I can say this- I would say I found God, which I haven’t before. Like I didn’t, I definitely haven’t before. And it was very sudden. I’m pretty new to this, and what I’ve been doing for the last month or so is reading the Bible and praying for it, I guess in a way that’s more like Protestant, probably.

And it’s been the like, the amount of peace that I’ve had, I haven’t had before. It’s completely absurd. I can’t believe it.

…I was looking forward to talking to you (Seamus) because my mom practices catholicism, and I haven’t really understood it very well. Because I felt like part of it was kind of, I don’t want to say vindictive, but I felt like there was a punishing element to it so that if you do something wrong, it’s like, you know, repent and kind of punish yourself, and I feel like with my type of brain I have enough guilt in me that I punish myself enough for anything I maybe even don’t even do that wrong. So I wasn’t very attracted to the whole catholicism thing because I thought there was a punishment element.

So I had this one day where I was worrying about… four really important parts of my life, and all of them were going really badly, like, in ways where I was like, ‘What am I- Am I not trying hard enough? Like what more can I do? I can’t do more to fix these four major problems.’

And then I met somebody and he’s Christian. And he was like, ‘Well, how are you managing with all these problems?’ And I was like, ‘I’m really not managing well.’ Like I’m working, and I’m keeping it together, but I don’t feel good. And I used to be clinically depressed, and it wasn’t depression. I just wasn’t feeling good.

And he was like, ‘well, that’s why you need God’. And I said okay, well that’s fine and dandy. It’s nice when somebody comes up to you and is like ‘well you need God’ because how are you supposed to wrap your head around that?

I was like, yeah, okay, maybe that sounds great, but I don’t know how to get there. And he said, ‘Just beg for him to reveal himself. Like- that’s what he said,- ‘ask him to reveal Himself to you.’

And so I went home that night, and I was was pretty upset about these four major problems. And I was in bed so I was praying, like seriously praying, like, ‘please give me some sort of sign, please reveal Himself to you.’ And the next day, all four problems cleared up in ways that made sense. It was a lot like they could have cleared up, but the likelihood of all four of them clearing up randomly that day was just too much.

So that happened. And I also woke up with this sense of calm I hadn’t felt- like the sense of calm right here. (points to heart) And that was enough. I was like, Okay, that’s good. That’s good enough for me.’

So it was kind of like a ‘click’ there, which is different for me. I’ve been talking about it on the podcast a little bit and bringing people on and talking to my mom but nothing clicked. So it was really sudden ‘click’ and then everything was great for about two weeks, so I was praying I was reading the bible, I was like ‘this is fantastic. Everything’s working out’ and then two weeks later, (there was a) little thought that was like ‘am i being silly?’ There are actual more logical explanations for why things turned around.

And that happened, and then I had two just miserable days. It was like ‘what is happening?’ Why do I feel this existential horror again, which I would differentiate from depression. Because I’ve been depressed before- this was really like existential angst. So it’s not like I’d stopped reading the bible or stopped praying, but I was just a little bit more removed from it and so I went back to it and then I had the most wild dream.

I was I talking to my parents about this and being like, ‘I think I found God, like isn’t that crazy?‘ And I went to sleep that night and I wokeup at 5:30 in the morning and I had a dream, and this loud thundering voice just yelled “Do it!” in the dream. And I woke up at 5:30 in the morning and was like ‘I think I just got yelled at by God. I think that just happened.’

That’s what it felt like. What does that mean ? What does it mean? So I had kind of a rough morning.. I was like ‘I don’t know what this means. Is that really what happened?’ And then it occurred to me that I think what it meant was ‘just go all in, don’t do this like 75% in. Anyway so it’s been a wild month. I’m doing really well, it’s just i’m a little bit shocked.

  1. Jordon Peterson is literally Hitler. His books and podcasts directly inspired the insurrection of Jan 6 and ongoing domestic terrorism.

    I pray she publicly renounced her fascist father and embraces a faith of social justice 🇺🇸🇮🇱🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈

        1. I’ve reported you to the Bureau Of Dumbasses and even they don’t want anything to do with you.
          Correctly referring to a dumbass as a dumbass is hardly ‘cursing out,’ John, it’s stating an obvious fact.
