On Claiming Belief In God: Discussion with Dennis Prager

32 comments

  1. Peterson's discussion on practising what you preach, what you believe; is summarised perfectly in the Book of James.

    James 2:14-19 – New King James Version (NKJV)

    14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?
    15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food,
    16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?
    17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

    18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.
    19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble!

  2. Who down votes Jordan? 455 feminist ? Must be a chuavinist? I been working on a same kind of mentality all my life. I always tried to be good, and became unncapible of evil. I wish I can do evil, to evil people. I can not be bothered with drama though. Jordan Peterson for P.M. of Canada!

  3. Have a child with a narissist, and after family court you will not think the same way. Socity is rotten, and a liar. In the past when women were repressed? Its all justified to me now. I understand why women were not given the same privlege. They do not deserve it. To generalize just like them. Its all about equality. So if they are allowed to abuse, so should I?

  4. People are dumb and lazy, Just look at the state off affairs in Canada. Canadains are cucks. Only pride they have is from thier ancestors from 70 years ago, and history is bullshit. Letting the politians destroy Canada? Canadains are Cuckandians now. The men are women like?

  5. Why do people listen to Jordan? Because he speaks the truth and common sence. The government and new world order, brainwashing and alll the propaganda, that is called news. People are confused and do not understand, that the government is the enemy of the people. Then a guy like this comes around? Its a sign of releif, that maybe good things can come? Its not, but one person can create hope.

  6. Exactly what I've been thinking lately. We're all on top of each other on the road, in the stores, at school, at work and with all having different backgrounds and personalities and views of life yet we manage to stay civil for the most part is absolutely amazing to me

  7. This has to be one of my favorite video sessions so far of yours…to hear the understanding clear as day behind your motives, the heart behind the brain.

    You are so emotionally charged when you speak as if you truly believe with your heart of hearts everything you say, and you can only get there when you trust yourself enough not to lie to anyone, including yourself…I have the feeling you are on the verge of yet another breakthrough tied to your heartfelt statement gleaned from your discomforts with the question, "Do you believe in God"

    I believe you will truly have a moment when everything just clicks because it's as if it's all on the tip of your tongue and has been culminating…percolating in its own wisdom, desire for truth, desire to matter, desire to be everything you can be…

    And person you've helped, in every little and big way possible, will have been both a strong stone to that discovery AND a special part of your unique journey. O hope that gpio stay healthy and continue to pursue the best you can possibly be such that as you grow, so, too, does the flow of listeners looking for a way to push onward grow with you…

    We all need a circle to which we can call home, a circle of friends, a circle of family, a close circle of trust, and respect within that are two more circles… your spiritual understanding and acceptance of what was, what is, and what can be… Thursday is where you can combine with God in a way unique to your journey based partially on the outer circles, but mostly based on your relationship to yourself and to what you want and hope to be. The only one who knows that circle better than yourself is God, and only by discovering who you are can you truly commune with the image you were made to mirror in some way. I see that as I watch your videos and listen to your talks because it's clear today the closer you get to discovering yourself and why you click the way you do, thr closer you seem to get to that age old question of "Where do we find God" that no person can ever truly answer for another person behind themselves.

    Thanks for your efforts and your emotion, your trials and your conviction… without these, you would not be thr prominent speaker you are today, and without this, your reach would have been so much smaller than it is today. You challenge us to be great, to push beyond our limits, and we love it.

    Just as chaos seeks balance and cold/heat seeks to disperse to the other side, so too, in a world where there is no commitment, responsibility, or self love: do people hear your words and find the drive to commit, to be responsible, and to love oneself while seeking that balance, that pull away from entropy…

    Cheers and thank you so much for sharing with everyone else. It makes all the difference some days,
    Nate

  8. Jordan Peterson thank you for your knowledge. He is a real awakened person in a world of sleeping sheep. He’s only trying to wake people up to the reality of the world.

  9. Prager – super nice guy. Not as smart as he needs to be. Wish he was. 'Falling for something else, might be an improvement. Burning books and people is not likely a spiritual peak in human potential.

  10. Question re: 39m59s – 40m4s
    There's a sudden dead air that seems incredibly unnatural; it was in the podcast version (Pocket Casts, 57m59s-58m4s), so I came here to check what he was saying. (It's in the middle of the sentence, appears to take out the crux of the point, and whatever was intended to be there was referred to in the next part of the statement.) Which word was intended?

    Context and question:
    "They do not wish to shoulder the unbearable responsibility of being a sovereign individual. So not only is it […] and that accounts for the cowardice and that accounts for the attempt to weaken the spirit of the people that they're teaching by overprotecting them."
    What is the […]?

  11. I believe in God… Now, Huitzilopochtli needs your heart… so please lie still without squirming while I cut it out. See! I am such a better person than those Godless Atheists!

  12. Such a wonderful, truthfulness. Spoken with simple clarity. Thank you Jordan. And thank you Dennis, for having Jordan, speak on this important message.
    I too, thank God, for creating Jordan, and speaking through him.

  13. I love both these Great Men and today i realized i need to read all i can from their books and listen to all their talk shows so i can reach my full potential in life. Its better to face things U dont like now instead of waiting for something Bad to happen in my life and then change, i may not like the outcome, i rather be prepared. Thank you Jordan Peterson N Dennis Prager.

  14. All great men in the Bible were very human and imperfect. Common denominator was faith to believe God and act on that belief. He knew you in your mother’s womb and raised you up for such a time as this.

  15. Wow the "I thank God He made you!" A lot if people say this including myself, but never really mean it. I felt that last bit.
