Jordan Peterson has recently published a video titled Message to the Christian Churches. It addresses the issue of raising up “real men.” Anyone who has been paying attention to the western Christian world will know that the Church has been dealing with this issue for a long time. Remember Mark Driscoll?
Right wingers will resonate with Peterson; left wingers will not. True Christianity is not trying to solve the conflict between left and right. Christ’s kingdom transcends our politics, thank God.
However, here again we see a non-Christian speaking with more influence over young men than any Christian leader. It doesn’t matter how wrong or right Peterson’s message is, it is the message being listened to by the most people.
I like Project Veritas. They’ve uncovered some important things. But so far this new story seems like a nothing burger. Lots of people voice their opinions. That does not mean these people actually have any authority to do what they really want to do. Nor does it mean these people know what they’re talking about. A low level worker might think he’s more important than he really is, but no one is actually listening to him or taking him seriously if they do. That’s what kind of individual I think we’re seeing in this part two video.
