Jordan Peterson is the author of “12 Rules for Life” this book is an international bestseller. Peterson comes over as uncertain when it comes to the question of the existence of God. The book implies that the human capacity for immorality and disgraceful behavior legitimizes the view of ‘original sin’. This he admits is very disliked in modern knowledgeable circles. The concept of original sin is mistaken although, sin is real enough. But only if we regard it as our blocking the divine life rolling into us through badly going against it. We do this when we go against our inner integrity of what is deeply meaningful. People either like or hate this author.
