Article Series on Theological Reviews of JBP work

Introduction to my new article series on Jordan B. Peterson's work

For some time now I have been thinking about the phenomenal success of Jordan B. Peterson on his psychological teachings and lectures touching people around the world. It is truly phenomenal.

But one thing that I am very much flabbergasted about is the amount of Christians who have fallen to this phenomenon believing that he “has become a Christian” because of his use of Biblical stories and references in his material.

When I bring the subject matter up or question my Christian friends and contacts to see what they have to say about it, there are usually some comments of agreements on the “Christian” affirmation.

For this reason, I have been “led” to start this series of articles as reviews on some of the amazing conclusions from believers heard from all walks of Christian life.

My point in all of this is that, just because speakers, teachers, preachers or anyone else use Biblical stories or references, it does not mean they are Christians. Jesus warned us that in the end times one of the biggest tool the devil will use is deceit ... and, wow, do we see that a lot today—by the hundreds, thousands and even millions.

I am not saying whether these speakers, teachers and preachers are born-again Christians or not, but I am saying that we need to examine what is being said and presented that have to do with Christian beliefs.

Interestingly, one of the things that propelled me into this special series of articles is something that I read from one of many of Jordan B. Peterson's quotes: “When you have something to say, silence is a lie.”

So, I begin this special series today with this article gleaned from one of Peterson's lectures on his Genesis series, “Joseph and the Coat of Many Colors“, showing that although it is an interesting presentation that many in the thousands have glued their ears upon, it is not an indication of the presenter being Christian or not.
