In a recent video, work-renown psychologist Jordan Peterson has delivered a powerful message on the importance and nature of truth.
Every week I write an article to inspire fathers. This last week I wanted to talk about two things:
The importance of prayer for fathers for their children. My second subject was the great need for prayer for our nation in the midst of what I would call the COVID madness syndrome.
We have written about authoritarian government overreach.
The article I put together is called Einstein’s Wisdom.
I used Einstein’s spiritual insights to frame the article. I believe Albert Einstein was right when he said,
“There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle”.
To reinforce the need to stand for truth both individually and corporately I used a 12 Minute reflection by Dr Jordan Person called THE TRUTH – One of the Greatest Speeches.
The summation tells the story well. Jordan Peterson shares life’s greatest wisdom on how to become a truthful human.
In an Eye-Opening video, Jordan Peterson talks about truth, lies and humanity.
I have never listened to a man so much in my life. I just love Jordan Petersen so much so I recorded my own video tribute called Seven Reasons why I like Jordan Peterson. The above video was put together and released on 9 March 2021 currently has over 745,022 views. It will get many more!

Romans 10: 8 Jesus is the same yesterday today and forever
This is very interesting. I’m reading Martha Beck’s book, “The Way of Integrity.” She decided that she would tell the truth for one year. After that year ended, everything in her life was completely different. Everything that was false in her life burned away leaving only what was real. What was real turned out to be all the things that gave her happiness. She compares this whole process to Dante’s nine circles of hell. Telling and living the truth takes a person from being lost in darkness to being found in paradise. It really is profound.
It is so interesting seeing Jordan learning more from what he is saying than he is teaching it to others. You can see as he pauses and searches for the word, discombobulating, that when he finds it he pauses again, nods his head in acceptance with himself that he found the word he was looking for. I often tell my friends as I am giving them advice not to take my direction to them to personally in my words for I am more teaching myself the answer to your question than arrogantly thinking I’m teaching you. Keep searching my dear sole Jordan Peterson, for it affords us the comfort to search ourselves.
I am amazed how close this man comes to the Gospel of Jesus from a purely scientific point of view. Everyone needs to listen and hear this.
I’d rather be slapped by the truth than kissed by a lie
When I hear him speak like this, I realise JBP is the closest thing to a priest I have in my life.
He is such a gift to our individual and collective well-being. Thank you for your courage, Dr. Peterson!
Dr Peterson is one of the great thinkers of our time.
The man is an inspiration to all. Our school system should make his online speeches a class in itself.
That this person is demonized by a large segment of western society tells you all you need to know about that group of people.
How anyone is able to do a summation of life experience so succinctly and forensically without pause or contradictions is remarkable in itself…..I chuckled the whole way through the poignancy of a life well learned and realising just how much I love this man for his ability to do open soul surgery…..
This speech should be played everywhere to remind people what is TRUTH and what happens when people forget about it. This man is genius. What a profound speech!
I’m going through the burning of the old self and I’m about to quit coz it’s hard. I was wondering what will be left of me then if I surrender everything? Yet almost everything else is a lie… so going back to the mud gives me temporary relief, an escape from taking responsibility but undermines progress. I will revisit this video when I need to align myself with my purpose. You are such a gift Sir, thank you.
What an incredible man. Thank you, Jordon Peterson, for all that you are.
“If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples, then you will know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”
Jordan is so incredibly challenging, but most of the time he is so unarguably correct, to the point of being painful.
This is probably the greatest 12-minute expose on the truth I have ever heard in my life. The above comments echo that sentiment!
Catherine Hicks quote’s from the comment section sums it up so well,
“I heard extraordinary wisdom tonight. Nobody I’ve ever listened to has explained it with grace, clarity, and sense. My God, my God, thank you for this word tonight. Thank you for this man. Protect him. Bring Godly wisdom to him. You are a man of wisdom. You might be a Solomon.”
