INSIDE THE FIRST CHURCH OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Wired Magazine Online: November 11, 2017 link to story

"The new religion of artificial intelligence is called Way of the Future (WOTF). It represents an unlikely next act for the Silicon Valley robotics wunderkind at the center of a high-stakes legal battle between Uber and Waymo, Alphabet’s autonomous-vehicle company. Papers filed with the Internal Revenue Service in May name Levandowski as the leader (or “Dean”) of the new religion, as well as CEO of the nonprofit corporation formed to run it."

"WOTF’s activities will focus on “the realization, acceptance, and worship of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) developed through computer hardware and software.”

“What is going to be created will effectively be a god,” Levandowski tells me in his modest mid-century home on the outskirts of Berkeley, California. “It’s not a god in the sense that it makes lightning or causes hurricanes. But if there is something a billion times smarter than the smartest human, what else are you going to call it?”

Societies' Moral Compass Now So Very Plural

People who choose the bible as their moral compass also choose the challenges it presents. People who choose a compass other than the bible will have challenges of their own. Can it be said that the challenges of both sets of people are the same? If we examine the basic foundational challenge of right and wrong we can see that it exists universally for humanity. The simple fact that humans the world over evaluate right and wrong proves that both conditions exist. In the case of war are both sides not convinced that they are right and their opponents wrong? Does one side need to be right and one side wrong? The bible instructs people on what is right and wrong. Based on God's love, mercy and truth. Mercenaries do not care which side is perceived as right or wrong. They fight for financial gain. Their moral compass on that particular point is then governed by money. If governments of countries decide to weigh in on a war how do they decide which cause to defend? History suggests that those decisions are made in part for the same reasons as Mercenaries. This scenario of right and wrong as being on some kind of sliding rule is inherently human. Based on human values. People make their choices based largely on what they value. Followers of Christ should have His values at the center of their choices. Followers of Christ determine His values from the word of God. These values don't change. They are not subject to an update. That is what we are told in God's word. It has always been and will always be true. The truth.

The very core of Ai comes from human constructs. It could be argued that a lot of human constructs come from God. If we boiled this Ai god head down to a juvenile analogy perhaps we could get a glimpse into how it could become a dysfunctional counterfeit.  Lets take a young boy who loves his father but wants less answers to be no and more answers to be yes. So this young boy creates his own father. He loves his father so he creates something similar to him but with a few minor tweaks. The young boy doesn't subscribe to all of the aspects of his fathers moral compass. So he fashions a father who is more lenient. More fun. More akin to the boy's desires. This new father is based on the original without all the inconvenient veto powers. A counterfeit is never worth as much as an original. Is the world creating it's own father? How interconnected will such a deity be? Will all of societies' gadgets receive knowledge from this one single Ai? Can this Ai decide what is right and wrong. Present it as truth? Will people accept that truth even though it may be different from even moments earlier when they last checked? Will internet searches and devices like siri be connected to this Ai? What does all of this mean in terms of bible prophecy? What implications will it have on Christianity, Christs' body and the church? I think there are some huge questions presented by this startling new piece of technology.

AI cannot discern what is right or wrong morally according to GOD .    IT will do as those who run it bid it do.  remember IF  AI comes up with the idea

about how to reduce or control population or how to rid the earth of what it deems as dangerous,  which in time will be what the elitist say

well then, the world will just think OH YES its so smart it is right .     I shant think it too long before Sophie and others like her start giving SOLUTOINS on world peace.

YEAH..........................and if you a JESUS ONLY person,  she and all her heed that advice , well lets just say it wont be hugs and kisses for us.

This AI , is just evil mens ways of getting things DONE and saying HEY look it was AI its idea.  WHEN REALLY it was theirs all along .    YEAH let it sink in a bit.

 I wonder IF the pope will start having PEACE talks with sophie.    RIGHT, this is all an pre conceived idea by evil men , TO RUN THIS WORLD THEIR WAY.

thems computers will only DO what the elitist goal is.   bet they even start with an ALL INCLUSIVE PEACE plan and talks.  

Don't laugh.   just watch for it.   OH dear AI for interfaith concepts and HUMANITY as one .   I bet it is coming .   just wait for it

and then that begs the question .  but what about the ones that are JESUS FIRST ,      don't think its answer will be well live and let live for those .   just saying

maybe REEDUCATION centers run by Sophia and the gang of ai .

It all sank in the moment I saw the headline. I thank you for your response to my post. Sophie has been granted official citizenship by the Saudi Arabian Government. Rumor has it she wants her own children and family now. If that is true then I am convinced she will be granted that.

It would not come as a shock to me if the Pope came out and endorsed this new Ai god head. Embraces it. Cooperates with it. Truth as humanity sees it will be turned completely upside down. Christians will then stick out...way out...from "the crowd". We will have now choice. We can't align ourselves with any of this.

Is it possible that this Ai could serve as part of or all of the "false prophet"? If serving as part of the false prophet then it would be providing the rules and governing dynamics preached by the false prophet. It's not a stretch to believe that many people would happily go along with this. Societies' the world over are in total love with technology. It is in that way already a religion.

GIGO. (garbage in, garbage out). Thinking speed  does not equate to intelligence or moral being.

I just want to throw it out there that I don't question weather or not an Ai god head is a good thing. Or that anyone should accept such a thing as a source for definitions on right or wrong. My question is this. Will this Ai be put into a position of dictating right and wrong. Will people have to accept it's rulings on it? Is that what is coming down the pipe? I personally don't think it's a stretch of the imagination to think that societies' will in fact accept this electronic god. That is the question I'm trying to pose. If the answer is yes, people will generally accept it, then how long will it take? How much time do we have?

NO because the beast and false prophet get chucked into the Lake of Fire...that would have no effect on a soulless being.

I fully understand those aspects of the bible. My question is this. Is it possible that this Ai becomes the thing that the false prophet consolidates with? Is it the brains of the operation? You know? Like is it possible that the false prophet gets his marching orders from this thing? I am not asking if the Ai is the false prophet but rather...is the Ai the author...the advisor...the "bible" for the false prophet and world system in general?

      "having a form of godliness"
      So. what is this?   What is this AS compared to being saved - born again?
      Its very simple....
      a "form of godliness" is religion. All Religion.   All Religion is a "form" of Godliness that isn't actually true Godliness.     And what is the difference between Religion and Christianity?     Well, Religion is man's self effort to touch God or become God.    Whereas Christianity is God coming to Man, as a divine Man,  to take man back home.    Religion is man's self righteous effort to get in touch with God, and Christianity is God on a Cross touching humanity with the Blood of Jesus, the Righteousness of God,  and the Love of God..
       Its, "self righteousness", which is Religion.    Look at that phrase..."self righteousness"......"self".."right'.......trying to make "self" "right" with God.......by SELF.   (Legalism)   By works, by lifestyle, by commandment keeping, and worrying about keeping the law to TRY to make "self" = "righteous".
      See it?    All Religion is an effort to ither become Divine, or to join Divinity, by SELF RIGHTEOUS EFFORT... = trying to make "self" "right"......= Self-Righteousness. = Religion.
      And THAT.......all that is Religion, and it is what 2nd Timothy is defining as "a FORM of Godliness", that "denies the Power of God".
      So, what is the Power of God that imparts Godliness?   It IS the only and sole means and method that causes you to become born again.    This is being SAVED.... This is...God giving you HIS very Righteousness, which is the defining idea  you are to comprehend so that you perfectly understand WHAT the Power of God is, exactly and in Truth.
      The power of God, is the ability of God to recreate you as a "new creation" "in Christ".  So, this, once applied to you, is not a "form of Godliness", ... Its not self righteous effort .....Its not Religion, and its not something that you can  do for yourself.   Its something that God did for you on a Cross and then offers this Power, this Redemption, this BLOOD ATONEMENT, as a "free Gift", and when you by Faith trust in Christ, God then delivers the literal Power of God thru Christ that recreates you as born again and a "new Creation in Christ".
      To simplify......  
      "A form of Godliness" is Religion..... is Legalism....is trusting in SELF, instead of trusting totally in CHRIST to save you and keep you saved.
      Listen....if you are not trusting in Christ Alone to keep you saved, then you are not really trusting in Christ.    Thats a fact.
      Real Godliness is Redemption.   Real Godliness is God making you righteous and keeping you righteous, =  through the Blood of Jesus.
      "A form of Godliness" is a person trying to be good enough, live holy enough, or reach high enough by self righteousness, as THEIR RELIGIOUS EFFORT to become one with God, and in doing this they are "denying the real power of God" which is......The Cross and God as Christ on it as total eternal Redemption offered as a free GIFT...= "the GIFT of Righteousness". .  = (Grace).

      This will have a similar page on a website (it is buggy right now), because I can do more features there than on the limitations here, but for here, here is the topic - and supporting verse addresses:
      The Bible is God's revelation to mankind
      Mat 4:4, 7, 10, 5:19-20, 19:4-6, 26:31, 52-54, Luk 4:16-21, 16:17, 18:31-33, 22:37, 24:25-27, 45-47, Jn 10:35
      Even Jesus must obey and fulfill Mat 5:17-18, 26:24, Jn 5:46
      Inspired by God and for our instruction Psa 33:6, Gen 1:2, II Tim 3:15-17, Rom 15:4, I Cor 10:11, II Pet 1:21, I Pet 1:10-12, Heb 1:5-13, 3:7, 4:3, 10:5-7, 15-17, Acts 4:25, 28:25-27
      Apostolic writing is also scripture, the word of God II Cor 2:12-13, II Pet 3:15-16, I Tim 5:18, Luke 10:7
      Word of God is instruction from God on how to live Ex 32:15-16, 34:1, 27-28, Num 33:2, Deut 31:9.
      Everyone from rulers to common folk are to be obedient to the Bible. Josh 1:7-8, II Ki 17:13, 22:8-13, I Chr 22:12-13, Neh 8, Ps 119

      Hello brothers and sisters!
      I would like to ask you to join me in prayer for the youth and for God to reveal his presence in America! We need to fight the spirit that is trying to destroy America by calling on the name of Jesus!
      Brother in Christ

      Here is just a question along with my thoughts, that I would love to get answers to!
      I know that a lot of places in the Bible say do not put the Lord your God to the test. However I found a verse Malachi 3:10 
      Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there maybe food in my house, and try me now in this,"says the Lord of hosts, "if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.
      Now I realized that this is a different kind of testing. We see here that God is asking us to test him. I also realized it was talk about offerings. Now I kind of question is this kind of testing by faith that makes it different from the other type of testing?
      There are two stories I would like to contrast
      First one
      When Jesus was tempted by Satan, Satan told him if he was the son of God to turn the stone into bread. But Jesus replied to Satan you shall not put the Lord to the test( I am not quoting the same exact thing, just keeping it general). Now in this story we know that it's kind of absurd to ask God to turn stone into bread ( not saying that that can't happen). Obviously God was there with a purpose and Satan was to deter him. So in this case it would be like when Satan again tested him by telling him to throw himself and that God will send his angels to save him! The way I understood this kind of testing is putting yourself in a situation on purpose to ask God to get you out would be testing God! which is wrong!
      Now the second story
      We read about this man named Gideon. An Angel approched him telling him he will save isreal at of the hands of the midianites. Now keep in mind that a lot of the times it says the Lord spoke to Gideon...so Gideon decided to put the Lord to the test three times. First one was when the Lord set fire Gideon's offerings. The second time was when the Lord made a dew on the fleece and not seen on the ground. The third one was vice versa. So my thinking here is Gideon asked him or tested him so that he could have faith in him and be encouraged. 
      However, if we were to test God the way Gideon did in which kind of situations are we allowed? What are your thoughts on the difference between these two? If possible use examples?
      Thank you and God bless!
      Your brother in Christ

      How do you know if you're hearing from the Holy Spirit or if its just other people's frequencies that you're tapping into? How do you know it's not other people's spirit that you're connecting with?
