Fifth in a series, Brain and Bible, linking deep Bible teaching with insights from 12 Rules for Life, by Dr. Jordan B. Peterson.

What is the most important job of a parent? Keeping the baby safe? Financial security? Making sure they get a good start in education?

How about this for a parents job description?
‘The first four years of childhood my job is to promote my child’s opportunity to be liked by children and adults.’

Welcome to Rule #5 Do Not Let Your Children Do Anything That Makes You Dislike Them

Luke 2:41-52

Rule #4 Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today

Jealousy easily breeds bitterness and resentment. Starting with the first human beings born on earth, lives get destroyed as a result.

How about working on you instead? Tiny steps under the power of the Holy Spirit…





Most people treat other people better than they treat themselves. Even their pets. What can we do about this?

Second in the twelve-week teaching series, Brain and Bible. We are digging deep into the scripture with insights from 12 Rules for Life, by Dr. Jordan Peterson.

Rule #2 Treat Yourself Like Someone You Are Responsible For Helping

Brain and Bible

A 12-week sermon series of practical insight from deeper-than-usual Bible research, and world renowned clinical psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson, “The most influential public intellectual in the world right now”- New York Times.

Dr. Peterson has had 100 million lectures downloaded from YouTube, 55 million podcasts, and the #1 worldwide best selling non-fiction book with 3 million + copies sold, 12 Rules for Life. This book is currently being translated into  50 languages.


Dr. Peterson sells out concert venues of several thousand seats each with the most cross-generational and cross-cultural audiences ever seen! So far, 350,000 people from 165 cities around the world have attended. But, instead of a two-hour rock concert, audiences are inspired by two-hour lectures on philosophy, psychology, brain research and biblical teachings. Along with this, Dr. Peterson is also one of the world’s most influential critics of atheism.

…brought to you by…

Pastor David Housholder, The Well at Surf City, Huntington Beach ( and Pastor Dana. David and Dana  have spent much time exploring Dr. Peterson’s work and are creating this teaching series together. Combining Dana’s years of experience in brain research and clinical psychology with David’s expertise in biblical languages and key cultural insights into the biblical narrative, this series will be helpful in strengthening faith, and provide key practical actions which can be taken to bring about transformation in people of all ages.

The greatest book of wisdom ever written?

Consider this:

“Within this divinely anointed compilation of Proverbs there is a deep well of wisdom to reign in life and to succeed in our destiny. The wisdom that God has designed for us to receive will cause us to excel- to rise up as rulers-to-be on earth for his glory. The kingdom of God is brought into the earth as we implement the godly wisdom of Proverbs” (TPT)

Our experiences make up the substance of reality.

We are spiritual substance.

You are a spiritual being having a human experience.

The Trinity is persons sharing experiences.

The first level of sharing experiences is conversation.

Prayer is speaking with God about how things are going in our work together.

Work is joining Jesus in the expansion of Gods’ Kingdom, working for the good of others.

We are living in eternity now.

The social and political realm, and the human heart, are the only places in creation where God’s Kingdom is currently permitted to be absent.

May God’s rule be completed in my life where I am, all around me, day by day, just the way it is done in heaven.

We can be our own little kingdoms.

All the problems of the world are about wrong thinking about God.

As sons and daughters of the King, we have access to his authority and power, and we join him in offering the things of heaven, breaking into the other kingdoms, grounded in his love.
