TEXTING JESUS

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY DECEMBER 4, 2023

    HOW’S THIS FOR THE IDEAL CHRISTMAS GIFT? THE WASHINGTON TIMES REPORTS THAT ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, OR AI, CAN NOW PUT US IN TOUCH WITH JESUS AND GET ANSWERS DIRECTLY FROM HIM.

LOTS OF PEOPLE HAVE QUESTIONS FOR JESUS AND I’M BETTING MANY OF THEM DON’T BOTHER TO SEE WHAT IS RECORDED IN SCRIPTURE. ENTER AI.

A SOFTWARE PROGRAM CALLED “TEXT WITH JESUS” ALLOWS USERS TO CHAT WITH AN AI-GENERATED JESUS CHRIST. THE ANSWERS REPORTEDLY ARE BASED ON WHAT JESUS ACTUALLY SAID AND DELIVERS A DAILY BIBLE VERSE.

IF THE CREATORS STICK TO THAT, THEN I SUPPOSE IT WILL BE OK. FOR YOUNGER PEOPLE WHO DON’T READ THE BIBLE AND WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT JESUS, THIS COULD BENEFIT THEM. BUT AS WITH JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING ELSE INVOLVING AI, THE PROSPECTS FOR ABUSE, MISINFORMATION AND DENIAL WILL BE THERE. ATHEISTS COULD USE THIS MODEL TO MISINFORM PEOPLE ABOUT JESUS, WHO HE IS, AND WHAT HE SAID.

    I AM WILLING TO GIVE THEM THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT WHILE WAITING TO SEE HOW THIS WORKS IN PRACTICE. AS FOR ME, I’M STICKING TO THE ORIGINAL. I’M CAL THOMAS.
