Who Dare Says He Believes In God?
Many already know who Jordan B. Peterson is. For those who don’t, he can be controversial. Yet, the points he brings to light for all who believe in God are valid. He provokes thought that leads to deeper understanding of the way Christians are to go. The Bible is clear than no man is good, but God only – “Luke 18:19 19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.” Jordon makes this point as sly as the devil himself, yet, as he does so, there is a humility about him that makes one pause and wonder.
I find his lectures and interviews very intriguing and with all that is taking place in the world, it seemed like a good time to listen to the man and see what we can glean from his own experiences and views on the spiritual warfare battles we are waging with darkness. His views are such that it provokes one to pause and go deeper into ones own individual purpose during this chaos we are all experiencing.
Jordan B. Peterson, “I have been asked many times by many people if I believe in God. I don’t like this question. I generally respond by stating that I act as if God exists, but that’s not sufficiently true. Who could do that? Who could conduct themselves with the moral exactitude and care necessary of someone who would dare to make that claim? Either claim? In any case, after being asked the question yet again, when I was in Australia, I decided to attempt to answer it in some detail.

Bio: Jordan Bernt Peterson is a Canadian professor of psychology, clinical psychologist, YouTube personality, and author of religio-philosophical literature. He began to receive widespread attention in the late 2010s for his views on cultural and political issues, often described as conservative.
Born and raised in Alberta, Peterson obtained bachelor’s degrees in political science and psychology from the University of Alberta and a PhD in clinical psychology from McGill University. After teaching and research at Harvard University, he returned to Canada in 1998 to join the faculty of psychology at the University of Toronto. In 1999, he published his first book, Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief, which became the basis for many of his subsequent lectures. The book combined information from psychology, mythology, religion, literature, philosophy, and neuroscience to analyze systems of belief and meaning.
In 2016, Peterson released a series of YouTube videos criticizing the Act to amend the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Criminal Code (Bill C-16), passed by the Parliament of Canada to introduce “gender identity and expression” as a prohibited grounds of discrimination. He argued that the bill would make the use of certain gender pronouns into compelled speech, and related this argument to a general critique of political correctness and identity politics. He subsequently received significant media coverage, attracting both support and criticism.
Peterson’s lectures and conversations—propagated especially through podcasts and YouTube—gradually gathered millions of views. He put his clinical practice and teaching duties on hold by 2018, when he published his second book, Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos. Promoted with a world tour, it became a bestseller in several countries. Throughout 2019 and 2020, Peterson’s work was obstructed by health problems in the aftermath of a severe benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome. In 2021, he published his third book, Beyond Order: More Rules for Life, and returned to active podcasting.
