‘What Biblical Religion Is Really Rooted In’: Ben Shapiro And Dr. Jordan B. Peterson Discuss The Difference Between Guilt And Shame

Daily Wire co-founder Ben Shapiro and Dr. Jordan B. Peterson discuss guilt and shame in the context of the Bible in the latest episode of Peterson’s “Exodus” series, which is available on DailyWire+. The episode features nine scholars and continues their study of the book of Exodus, focusing on chapter 24. Shapiro explains that guilt pertains to how others perceive us, while shame pertains to our shortcomings before God. He notes that modern culture places too much emphasis on guilt, which may lead us to focus on group dynamics rather than individual actions. Peterson agrees, adding that we should instead focus on re-sacralizing our actions and fulfilling our highest potential, rather than getting bogged down by feelings of guilt over past injustices. This episode is the fourth installment of an eight-part series exploring the theological and literary significance of Exodus.

The episode features Os Guinness, James Orr, Stephen Blackwood, Larry Arnn, Jonathan Pageau, Dennis Prager, Douglas Hedley, and Gregg Hurwitz as guests. To catch up on previous episodes, which delves into topics such as the Ten Commandments, click here.
