Scott and Jon attended one of
Jordan Peterson’s lectures. In this episode they share their
thoughts on the message Jordan Peterson brings to men.
- Before this podcast had you heard of Jordan
Peterson? Had you heard about his opposition to legislation, his
lectures, or his book 12
Rules of Life?
- A lot
of young men are drawn to Peterson because of our need for someone
who will speak truth into our lives and provide us with high
challenge. Why do men gravitate to that? Do you see this
“father-hunger” void show up in other areas?
- Read 1 Corinthians
4:14. Who would you say
have been spiritual guides or spiritual fathers in your
and Scott talked about wrestling, hunting, sports, etc. There seems
to be an innate physicality to boys and men, do you agree or
- Read John 5:19-20,
8:28. What can we learn
from Jesus’ relationship with his Father?
what you think about Peterson’s quote, “If you want to make
dangerous men, make weak boys.”
Lewis said, “We make men
without chests and expect from them virtue and enterprise. We laugh
at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate
and bid the geldings be fruitful.” We complain that we don’t have honorable men,
but we don’t do anything to create honorable men. What are some
things we can do to help reverse that?
is it valuable to give men high expectations or challenges, equip
them with the right tools to feel confident, and get them together?
What can we create to provide that?
