Message to Christian Churches & A Response

Updated: Apr 6

Message to Christian Churches & A Response

"Young people, particularly young men are facing an unparalleled demoralization inculcated by an extremely damaging ideology. Dr Jordan B Peterson reveals the issues at hand and challenges the Christian Church to step in." from video introduction.

"The Christian Church is there to remind people, young men included, and perhaps even first and foremost, that they have a woman to find, a garden to walk in, a family to nurture, an ark to build, a land to conquer, a ladder to heaven to build, and the utterly terrible catastrophe of life, to face stalwartly in truth, devoted to love and without fear." Jordan B. Peterson

One of the things that has long attracted young men to what Jordan Peterson has to say is he says it to them in much the way a Father or mentor would. In the video response below Doug Wilson asks the hard question why aren't Christians and Churches doing this?

One of Peterson’s key phrases is: “Ask more of them than anyone ever has.” This valuable wisdom has informed many successful religious movements in history. Christ Himself declared: “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” We all know that ambivalence, low commitment, ambiguity, and minimal expectations are death in a spiritual community, yet the Church in America has been terrible in this regard.

Men often dislike church and as Doug Wilson points out the perception is we must check our masculinity in the front door.

yet we can't lay all the blame on the church. Men are also the blame in their low commitment and apathy. Most men spend large amounts of time on entertainment, hobbies, etc. but basically coast by their faith commitments.

Our longstanding consumer/part-time Christianity has led many to believe we can give our relationship with Christ a small portion of our attention and God will be ok with that. He is NOT!

The Body of Christ by and large in America is shallow and uninterested.

We must recommit ourselves to our Lord, confess, repent, and humbly worship at his feet! - Andy
