When will Artificial Intelligence (AI) peak? When will AI be too much for man to handle? I believe we have merely scratched the surface and can expect a lot more unbelievable accounts involving AI. I believe the thing that most concerns me is that the data from which AI gathers information is only as good as the scientists’ and engineers’ data sets.
Back in 2020, a group called the Activist Group Extinction Rebellion produced a fictional video address speech (referred to as deepfake) by Belgian prime minister Sophie Wilmès on Covid 19. I won’t go into what the speech said because that is not the point. The point is that AI was able to manipulate her address to say things she did not actually say. You cannot believe what you see because it could be a deepfake.
Today, we are seeing more usage for AI and I don’t doubt we will also see an increase in the various ways it can be applied. Now imagine its application in churches and synagogues around the world? What will the next online sermon be? The pandemic confined people to their homes and Christians looked for sermons they could watch online to get their spiritual meal. One of the good results of the pandemic was that churches began putting their services online for those who could not attend. I for one was grateful to be able to watch services online when we could not go in person. Now, can you imagine an online AI generated sermon? They look so real and you would have no way of knowing that it wasn’t. Sophie Wilmès’ address wasn’t real and I dare say I would not have been able to tell that it was not her!
So what is the truth? One thing for certain is that Jesus is and we can trust the Bible in PRINTED form to have accurate information. If I did not own several, I would be buying a Bible today before they are replaced with AI generated ones.
The devil will surely use this to benefit himself and to move his agenda forward. He wants to be the ruler of this world as well as the ruler of every individual he can get under his control. His goals are easy to see when you are a Christian. However, after the Rapture, a strong delusion will be released on this earth. The Holy Spirit’s restraint will be removed and spiritual darkness will overwhelm the world.
The time is coming when it will be too late for you to repent. You will remember each opportunity you were given by God to be saved; you will remember each time you laughed it off and ignored it. Please Reader, repent and accept Christ into your life. (Act 16:31, Rom 10:9) I want to be sure that anyone who reads the posts on this blog can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are going to Heaven. Have you received Christ as your Saviour? If no, your sins are not covered by His sacrificial offering of Himself. You have not been redeemed by His blood. It is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved if you are not already.
