Don’t worry about being hit on the highway by a driverless automobile. Something worse this way comes. The race is on to produce artificial intelligence, AI for short. Silicon Valley and America’s tech industry are feverishly working to come up with machines approximating human intelligence. But more than that, scientists want to devise a Hal-Space-Odyssey-like machine that can “think” rationally, be aware of its surroundings, and achieve its programmed goals without ongoing human help. The sex industry wants in on this creative curve. So-called sex-bots, copulating robots, are already used in European brothels. There are even child-like simulations for perverts of such predilections. With the leftist, liberal bent of companies like Google and Facebook, do we really think that they’d allow conservative, Christian principles to guide their exploratory impulses?
A recent article in the Wall Street Journal (July 15-16, 2017) warned, “Facebook recently announced that it is trying to build ‘optical neuroimaging systems’ that would allow users to direct their digital lives just by thinking. If Facebook succeeds in creating brain-computer interface, will we be prepared to welcome such corporate access to our very thoughts?”
Case in point. YouTube, owned by Google, recently flagged almost two-thirds of the 300 exorcisms on our YouTube Exorcism Channel as “offensive.” This means, among other things, that advertisers cannot place ads there, as has happened in the past. (The revenue was small, but every little bit helps.) And what was deemed offensive? YouTube refuses to say, and all power is in their hands. We do know that this censorship started with them flagging any mention of Islam in our videos. Obviously, their algorithms are set to a politically correct standard of permitting attacks on Christians but nary a discouraging word about Islam.
AI is on the way, and Christians must be vigilant as to what lies ahead. Sex robots with indwelling spirits of Jezebel? Don’t laugh. Stranger things have happened. Satan may have things in store we’ve never dreamed of. Lord Jesus, come quickly (Rev. 22:20)!
An encouraging word: GOD ENDURES
Not much in our world lasts long, but “the Lord shall endure forever” (Psalm 9:7). As society and government rapidly moves further and further away from God, it’s comforting to know that He hasn’t moved. The Almighty is not affected by the petulance of man’s arrogant desire to rid Him from our daily lives. While America disregards God’s law to a greater extent with each passing day, we need to be reminded of the rest of this verse: “He has prepared His throne for judgment.” We need it written large over the entry to every building of our government: HE WILL ENDURE AND HE WILL JUDGE!
