Who Dares Say He Believes in God?

  • Am Vor 2 years

    Jordan B PetersonJordan B Peterson

    And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God. (Mark 10:18 ; see also Luke 18:19 ).

    Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 7:21 , KJV).

    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.

    This lecture, one of the 12 Rules for Life tour talks, was delivered in Sydney Feb 26, 2019, at the International Convention Centre. It was one of six I had professionally video recorded. Five of the six will be released directly on thinkspot, our new social media platform (to be announced in mid-June), as a bonus for direct subscribers (not to worry; there are still more than 50 to be released as audio on the Jordan B Peterson podcast at bit.ly/2HUdgnc , so it's not as if there will be any shortage). But I thought DE-film would be appropriate for this, given the potentially broad interest in the topic.

    I've made a new playlist for it, too, entitled On (my) Belief in God. Three videos make up that playlist: this one, a 20 minute talk I did for the Prager summit in May of 2019 ( de-film.com/v-video-vwKCK5EhibM.html ), and an interview/discussion I had with Dennis Prager at the same event ( de-film.com/v-video-j0GL_4cAkhI.html )

    I would recommend watching them in the playlist order, which will be this lecture first, then my Prager talk, then the interview, if you're interested in doing so. I think they make a good group.The idea of belief in God is of extreme importance. I hope that these lectures and interviews add to everyone's understanding of my position and why I hold it.

    As always, thank you very much for your continued support.

    The adjunct videos are also available on the Prager U site: the lecture at www.youtube.com/watch?v=avInT... the interview at www.youtube.com/watch?v=L47oJ...

    Thanks to the Prager U organization for the invitation and opportunity.

In the name of Allah the merciful the gracious, I testify that no deity exists except Allah and that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. I would like call you to turn to Allah and to seek guidance from the Quran, the words of Allah. Who dares to say they believe in themselves - this is a more challenging task, can we comprehend our true selves, can we see our naked lowly selves and believe that this is a part of who we are. We can we see the good but can we see the evil within, as we are all sinners. Satan, the most evil of creatures, believes in Allah more than anyone, but he failed to see or believe in he’s own true nature. You cannot truely believe in Allah and turn to guidance to correct your lowly self if you cannot see it or believe that it exists and then to believe it needs to be corrected. Peace be upon you.

The whole point of scripture is to prove to us that we are utterly unable to save ourselves with our own good works; Jordan perceives this very well. Only God can save us by grace through Christ. If we fully realize this we will become humble before God and man. That is why Jesus died, to be sacrificed in our stead so we may be counted "good". What a gift is given to us by God; it's free for those who believe and rely totally on Him. It costs us nothing, and it costs us everything...

I wish he would include evolutionary development in his thinking though... The different spirits and internal conflicts he decribes are pretty much a brain in conflict with itself. The primal needs, the simple and basic emotions that drive animals to survive in the wild... To grow from that, building upon the brain from before obviously gets us to a brain that can handle abstract and complicated concepts - but also struggles to balance needs and emotions. This religious instinct is little more than the baggage that comes with us being unable to grow a brain from scratch, but having to deal with the history of evolution of our brain.

What then do you say when you read the Bible and decide that you would like to follow this Jesus character, I feel like he has over complicated the question that most Christians ask themselves every day and people they talk with about their faith in the unknown and yet knowable! I think that question whether you answer it or not is a decision that you make to allow Gods, presence in your life. I'm not trying to negate all his reasoning's they are sound and true but I guess that question as a christian is maybe to simplified. Maybe the question should be instead. Does what you read and hear resonate with you and would you like to invite God into your life? he then will guide you to change, like many other's have had their life changed throughout history. It a catalyst question i reckon!

Around 1:26:00 it sounds like he seems to conclude that to be a true believer means that you are living that out 100% to the max completely all the time... But that is not possible for anyone. By that definition, no one can claim to truly believe in God. I think the point of believing specifically in Jesus is that you realize and acknowledge that you can't act out that perfect belief in God (attain righteousness so to speak) on your own efforts or merits and that Jesus was that single perfect human that lived perfect belief/trust/obedience to God and that trusting in his righteous acts/life and ultimate death on our behalf is what makes us righteous... In other words, it's not about having perfect belief but believing, (even in minuscule ways ie mustard seed) in the only perfect One... I can readily confess though that I've struggled with this alot because I've constantly had this feeling of not having a real or genuine trust in God as I know I should have, so there's that constant feeling of insecurity and doubt but usually it happens when I am so focused on my efforts at believing so to speak rather than the one I am claiming to believe in. I mean, the claim itself is quite radical, that you can have the same righteousness in the sight of God as Jesus, because of his righteousness which he gave to us by way of sacrifice... The more you think about it its one of those things that to mere intellect its insanity but to the spirit it's life

My Dad always looked at the hills around our house and told me not to question God because who else gave us the mountains around our harbour. Who else makes the sun rise he would ask me. Man would never say a prayer after being raised by an extremely Irish Catholic mother in his youth - she was the kind of Galway girl who beat the sh*t out of him and his sister for attending a Protestant wedding they were invited to by their Mom’s brother (she refused to attend so Roman Catholic). He never did support the church ( he always calls the Irish Brothers that were based in our hometown that have been convicted pedophiles “brown holers”) and he’s the kind of man that made sure his son was not a victim. My Dad confronted Father Bennett in Newfoundland. Google the name to know strength of a father protecting his son. Never trusted and always called the priest some names my mother hated hearing.

An alternative thought, perhaps similar but different, is when a person wrestles with God it means you wrestle initially with the acknowledgement that there is in fact a God regardless of no material evidence and then when you have accepted that God exists (whatever your conception is of God or even if you are agnostic) you then must give up your own sense of autonomy and will, thus accepting the will of God as the primary will above and beyond anything and all that you yourself may wish for or decide.

1.13.05 'Sacrifice your children to God.' I disagree that through the act of sacrificing your child/children you are teaching your them to understand the fundamental position they hold in terms of ethics when they make decisions. IMO The sacrifice that Abraham was called to make was the sacrifice of that he held most dear above all other things and persons, in fact that thing most precious because it had been given to his wife and himself by God. The same God that he held in the highest esteem and position of respect above all else. Thus, God tested Abraham, just as he tested Job to see by not simply word but action that they were truly devoted to him above even the most precious thing they otherwise knew. In essence a test of faith and devotion.

I FIGURED IT OUT!! I FIGURED OUT WHAT GOD, JESUS, THE HOLYSPIRT, CHRISTIANITY, HEAVEN, AND HELL TRUELY ARE!!! 1 - God is a state of being!! It is clarity of meaning for emotional control and innovation. 2 - Jesus is a historical figure that became God, and found a way to come back to life after imprinting his name into history. 3 - the Holyspirt is the genuine ’you’, that has reached the conclusion of clarity, making yourself a ‘God’. 4 - Christianity is the likemindedness of having the traits Jesus posses. I’m turn, Christians are also Gods. However, Christ mean to be ‘appointed’. This means that Jesus did something with his knowledge to be given the title of God in the eyes of others, eventually billions. So, to not only be a God, but act like one, working hard in union with this state of being, allows for one to be recognised as ‘God’. 5 - Heaven is the environment of the ‘emancipated’ or clarified get to enjoy living in the material world, or on ‘Earth’ - so Earth isn’t really the name of our planet, but the name of everything in creation! IT’S ANOTHER WORD FOR THE (Physical) UNIVERSE!! - despite the negative reality brought about those that let ‘hell’ in. 6 - Hell is the negative state of being that only takes place for those with ignorance and irrationality. Those that experience hell are those that are too afraid to confront the reality, as it is mentally taxing to attempt and ‘see’ another person’s perspective. However, they can crawl their way out of hell, if they allow for any bit of heaven to manifest, but that can only be done under the circumstances of complete questioning of one’s being. Which is hard to start on your own, especially if there are others around you that are also living in hell, since they won’t be able to give you the ‘freedom’/‘emancipation’ to give yourself time to open your eyes. Now, if someone were to read this, there would undoubtedly be misunderstandings, but take my word for it, if you don’t feel good about what it is I have summarised, then you don’t have the correct perspective. If you don’t wish to change for the sake of this understanding, I only pray, with my faith as God, that you too can become God and live in heaven just like me, Jesus, The first Buddha (I’m not sure about the other Buddha’s), Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, and many many more. I myself have yet to act, so that I will do. I do as I say, for that is the way of being a creator. To follow to rules of being, and not have a dissonance of the persona! Ok, enough heavy vocabulary. I just really hope that every else can be this enlightened as me right now, and hold this state for the entirety of their existence. For those by the way wondering is there is life after death after reading this, think back to the start of genesis: “God created the Heavens and the Earth” Taking this into context of the definitions I have listed, and taking the bibles word for it that the universe/Earth was made before mankind (which it obviously was), there must be a ‘higher being’ that had this complete clarity also, and instigated the start of the material universe. For those questioning why I’m highlighting the ‘physical’ and ‘material’ Earth, is because I also have hope that there is an over lapping realm that we can not interact with, unless if we are first boundless, body free spirits (or the genuine ‘you’ that I mentioned before). That is all, thanks for reading 😊

This presents a challenge for someone like myself, who, being an Orthodox Jew, have no choice but to publicly proclaim my belief in G-d. I have to keep the rules and rituals, even when my heart isn't fully in-line with them, while all the time striving to bring myself closer and closer to being in line with them, deepening my faith and working on developing my character and the way I am living my life. Do I really live this all the time? No. But I know that it's my responsibility. Perhaps an honest way to say it would be, "I believe in G-d, and therefore strive (though not all the time, and very imperfectly) to live my life in line with this belief, working to become more G-dly, working to develop my character and give all that I can in serving Him, my family, my community and mankind as a whole."

"To say, 'I believe in God', would mean that I would be a good person, like, right now!" If God exists and is good, and understands His creation, wouldn't he understand the process of learning, and value the fact that someone starting out in their relationship with God would need time to learn from Him? Ben Franklin said, "It is hard for an empty bag to stand upright". It is impossible for people to give what they don't have. Therefore unless the person is filled by God, indeed by experiencing a real relationship with God, he can only stand to the extent that goodness has been given to him. This necessitates a process of learning.

I think what he is referring to is that even if people say they believe in God, they don't show the fear of God in how they live their lives. The Bible even says that the demons know he exists and tremble. The real question is not whether you believe in God or not, but whether you fear God or not. Many people believe in God, but do not fear him. For us there is a path of reconciliation to God available, through believing that God is, and that he is a rewarder of those that diligently seek him.

Mr. Peterson, one word to describe you with, would be 'FANTASTIC'. Highly intelligent yet humble, and blatantly honest. A man with a profound knowledge of the past, allowing a clear vision of the present. A humanist in the truest sense of the word, with an understanding of the human psyche and condition, and the tools we need to reduce our seemingly pointless suffering through prupose and meaning. The part that touched me most was the 'willingness to struggle with God', and the fact that acting as if God exists if more important than the utterance of relative statements about the existence of God without acting those beliefs out.

I had to stop around the 1:10:00ish point to leave this comment because it hit me so strongly as being wrong that I had to pause o make this statement. First off, I highly respect JP and agree with quite a bit of what he portrays in the sense of his ideals both in this lecture as well as some of his other more sociopolitical stances. The thing that made me stop was his idea that truly believing in God would instantly make someone a better person as according to the general beliefs in how one should act under the realm of doctrine of being a believer (whether that be Christianity, Judaism, Islam, or whatever). Previously, JP mentioned how his undergrad students would make a statement in their first paragraph and then directly dispute that statement in their seventh paragraph and I feel like that is the exact thing that JP has done. The belief in a deity and it’s subsequent moral code of action doesn’t necessarily mean that you are automatically good at acting according to those moralities as soon as you decide to abide by them. JP has already mentioned that the human existence is comprised of many different internal voices and influences that makes it hard to say “I’m going to be that” and then be flawless in that execution. That would be nearly impossible to do. The fact that I believe in God certainly doesn’t mean that I don’t completely fuck it up from time to time. The difference is that I know what my goal is and am able to recognize when I fall short of that so that I may act more appropriately the next time a similar situation arises. Perfection might be what I’m aiming for, but I also am fully aware that perfection is completely impossible to attain. That’s where faith kicks in. I realize that statement might be completely ambiguous to the atheist and agnostic, but faith is the cornerstone of religion.

In the midst of such a rhetorical display he is simply inadvertently allowing us to see upon careful attention, that his “proclivity” to see everything through the glasses of his well organized thinking structure based on a combination of philosophy and scientific values, that the third pillar of knowledge, faith, is merely a fantasy. And as so, like Descartes and Aquinas, save some scientific and philosophical conclusions proving it as a fact, God is only an idea that one can only create for moral and earthly healthy living. His body language snd articulation seems to demonstrate that he is petrified and hugely affected by the idea of allowing people to see him in this way. Regardless, I admire his intelligence big time.

People are valuable because their human beings just because their human. If one takes that as an a priori truth for ones self as a principle for how one behaves in the world with a non naive approach then one is more courageous than one who argued from a place of statistics which is by its very nature cowardly and unfalsifiable. If you hid in your cave and cited statistics to justify what you think of people or if like in the movie scarface were willing to hurt women and children like cowards then your evil would have no end. As imperfect as a living principle from statistics might be that humans are inherently valuable because their human like Terry Butler suggested then youll treat people well and you wont be an evil coward.

welp xtians, there you have mark 10:18 in which yeshua is protrayed as having pretty clearly rejected the notion that he is yahweh. Yeshua was a devout rabbi and would not have had the slighest notion that he himself was part of a "trinity".

deep congratulations to Peterson for having the courage to identify himself with an overwhelming majority. That majority is not only in his own country but a demographic which enjoys vast entitlement and advantage throughout north and south america and has held such advantages for at least 500 years in western and central europe. Especially if it somehow identifies as "male, white, christian and with access to public discourse".

I usually agree with JP but unlike JP statement at 1:25:00 : I AM able to say "I'm a believer", even though I'm a mess. Because the Bible says "God will fight for you, you need only to be still at peace. So, when you give up control and Trust your life to God with Hope & Faith in Him, (Thank-You God that You are indeed Helping me now!) God slowly but surely changes you for the better, and this feeds on itself. The deeper you understand God's Purpose: 1) To make you more like Jesus (giving and receiving and having: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control. 2) And then sharing this knowledge and experience with others out of Agapi Love. ; The more you experience life the way God intended you to, through good and bad. As a joyful adventure with all the negitive emotions only lasting a little while when hard times hit you. Praise my Father God!

I believe in god. We just need to define what is ment by god. I see god as eternal unconditional love, an energy that surrounds us all and makes us do good deeds without gaIning anything, except making others feel that love.

It’s refreshing to finally have a well educated “man” speak utilizing the data based on facts from his or others hypotheses when arguing any given topic that he’s passionate about rather then speaking to unproven or proved to be wrong socially biased narratives that shaping our beliefs into situations where no one can think for themselves, which in turn has people making decisions based on what uneducated men and/or women, like a football players or rappers say, who really have no right to speak on topics they truly no nothing about! which as far as I can see is shaping the minds of our children to not think for themselves or believe in something without ever educating themselves to whatever the topic is! I am assuming his hypothesis are based on ascertained using the scientific method, which allows him to speak from past tried and trued experiment data. His arguments most of the time are based on actual facts with no underlying addenda or political motivation that most public speakers of today always seem or appear to have some hidden political addendum based on skewed social points of view designed to make you lean to one side or the other based on farces or unproven results. Which most of the time are based on systems that throughout time have been proven not to work/failed, but now reintroduced with sprinkles of social utopia, by stating once again “this time we will make it better” or “this time is different because of “X” being different this time”, with huge overtones of socialism, communism, post modernism, Marxism, etc or even just flat out stating that’s what they are proposing. These social or political doctrines have been proven time and time again not to work, but somehow if you change the words around the most current social issues it the somehow is ok in today’s society. Where as Jordon only speaks to the the results ascertained through real time social experiment data, which he uses in all of his arguments, oh ya and logic. He must have driven his parents nuts with the great question of “WHY”!!
