A Pre-Christian Prophet

Jordan Peterson is very popular these days. He has a lot of wise things to say. I particularity like his opinions on helping people get their lives in order, and on politics. I don’t much like his take on the bible and Christianity. Peterson is heavily influenced by Carl Jung, and he uses those Jungian ideas when interpreting scripture.

I call Peterson a pre-Christian prophet. Pre-Christian because I believe he is on his way to becoming a genuine believer (which he is not yet), and prophet because he does speak truth to the masses and warns of a future which we are headed toward if we ignore that truth.

Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot (if any) Christian men who are recognized and listened to like Peterson. Christian leaders are often preoccupied with their own fame and egos. Christian leaders are caught up in childish fantasy doom and gloom visions of the future in which the Church falls under the power of some comic book villain. Christian leaders offer no real solutions for the future’s problems, other than waiting to escape this world. Why would anybody listen to men like that?

There are no Christian prophets left, only pre-Christian ones.
