>45 pages
>a novel
I mean, good for you for having a finished short story but that is not a novel.
>download my file
I think I know why no one is bothering to read it.

>What's going on here?
You forgot to finish your sentences, and so created a strawman where those phrases seem to be at odds (but they are not).

Be fruitful and multiply in the sacrament of marriage.

Outside of the sacrament of marriage, it is best (that is, most pleasing to God and most beneficial to man) to be celibate. Very special people forgo the sacrament of marriage and commit themselves to and interior life of worship and good works and holy vows, which typically demand celibacy.

This, pretty much.

No, but that is not to say anything favorable to him as it also surely means Peterson himself doesn't know wtf he's on about.

Get some good solid theology into your brain. Faith is contingent upon the philosophical assumption that God exists. You can't have faith in Christ without believing He exists, and was Creator (read John 1). I would expand that to say all knowledge in a meaningful existence depends on it. I.e., an absolute morality is possible because God loves us and commanded us to love one another. He is the form of the good, the first principle and most perfect beauty. His divine grace is love, [and being His creations] the only thing we can want for itself.

Think of the philosophy of love and forgiveness espoused by Jesus in his dialectics as an advanced and voluntary form of the ideal government of Plato. The kingdom of God is ever yours, if you desire it.

For an anthropological perspective, read Campbell's Masks of God and Power of Myth. Man has always made stories about the divine superman. But Christ's case, the Logos Made Flesh, really is self-evident if you look at it carefully.

For proof of God, read Aristotle, Duns Scotus, and most importantly Aquinas. I haven't read and wouldn't understand Godel's ontological proof, but if you can more power to you.

A lot of the theurgic stuff from antiquity is helpful to know about, especially for understanding the context of Christ in a world of Greco-Roman philosophers, but unnecessary. Philo is a good early defender, but he really falls short of the Plotinus or Plato.

Not an endorsement or recommendation, but for a general introduction to what he meant, read Horkheimer's Critique of Instrumental Reason

basically: >muh rationalism
