Enjoy sure, but most of all, thank you for listening and choosing The Truth Podcast Network. This is the Truth Network get ready. It's one of America's most important, influential and respected voices on cultural and political issues and apologist political advocate and author is the founder and chairman of the citizen of America foundation, Dr. Chris God anyway. What room equipment or whatever identity we desire virtually artificial intelligence is fast becoming a normal part of our lives. I'm Chris you welcome to the Christian perspective, or we looking God's word in order to develop an worldview in modern culture showed brought to you by the citizens for America foundation from the Christian perspective studios on the campus of Mid-America college and Mid-America Baptist theological seminary in Memphis Tennessee and I just want to invite you with your looking for college to attend.

Talk about a topic that I don't know much about and hopefully you will listen and take notes because it's going to be a very informative show great crisis of our age is not technology in typically artificial intelligence and robots are clipping our reverence for God in the rush to create human helping artificial intelligence technologies are making machines that may eventually become our masters.
I had the chance a few years ago to go my son to a technology conference at Harvard and pretty scary. What scientists are doing with machines and with computers right now around the world.
I guess today has written a compelling a groundbreaking book that were talk about best-selling author Wallace Hanley is with me today were talk about the impending moral and ethical choices that will soon need to make as believers in Jesus Christ. Can we hold artificial intelligence and its creators accountable to the true God will chocolate some of this day and if not, you will learn today our world spin in the peril, artificial intelligence, have a huge impact on our lives and we need to have an understanding of the worldview and the vision of the future held by these people were grading this technology many more Christians like you and I are today and they may not hold a biblical worldview, so their goals may be a little bit different from ours in our guest today is Wallace Hanley. Mr. Hanley was born in Alabama so he's a country boy how I'm not to park there is more the Panhandle of North Florida which I wish they call lower Alabama anyway. But he was on December 5, 1941, which is just two days before the attack on Pearl Harbor easing a lot of great things happen in his lifetime and even his beautiful wife Irene have been married for more than 53 more than 50 years now and he have a heart for politics like God he did know this. I did notes are read in his bio we both share a passion for being engaged in the public arena in 1973 I he was honored for his coverage of the civil rights movement. He worked in the White House with Pres. Nixon and those unit listen to the show know that one of my great influences of the reason probably that the show started today because of a mandate, Chuck Colson, who also worked in the Nixon White House and Mr. Haley was also congressional staffers always got a lot of.
The public arena.
He after he left the little Linda but he became a pastor senior associate pastor in Houston Second Baptist Church went by the way is over 68,000 members serve as a call this for the Christian Post which is the world's largest Christian newspaper and he conducts leadership conferences all over the world is a member of the board of the center of Christianity in business at Houston Baptist University and is an adjunct professor and worldview studies, which is really going to help us today at Belhaven University and he's written more than 20 books but today were talk about one of those books in particular in his new book is called who will rule becoming God looming spiritual crisis of artificial intelligence. Mr. Haley, thank you so much for being with us today Chris it's a tremendous joy to have this opportunity. Thank you. I just did all of that was when I read your bio I believe all that God is use you so many areas in your such a testimony to what we try to do on the show because we try to encourage Christians to develop a biblical worldview and then dictate that biblical worldview, not just into their everyday lives. Specifically, into the arena of public policy and politics in you kind of live that life you are living example that Christians can be involved in what's going on in the culture today so I thank you for the stand that you're taking. Thank you so much brother and I must say week we can bring, and we must be and cannot tell you just a short Chuck Colson anecdote sure I was pastoring in South Alabama after I left the White House and went back to the newspaper business in the midst about God rebirth. The call while scripting to preach the gospel and I become pastor of a small church in South Alabama. One day one of my friends from Washington called me and said Wallace Colson is accepted Christ not like I can't. I can't believe it because I are newer than the White House and also for those of us little sharp. We should Colson has accepted Christ once more imposing on Watergate charges in South Alabama at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery and we want you to travel up there and talk to him and just can't help them along the Prelude. I had the joy of reading Chuck early the department have not known them in the White House without beating little brother and it was just an incredible experience so well. Every time Gordon, let me meet with. I think he hoped we would talk about the Watergate invited stage things but they didn't really talking about the Lord I'm so glad to hear about the influence of children in your life. My brother well lit up some let you to do your traveling.
This year was result of chuckles was so many people probably know who Pres. Nixon was in the early 1970s and of course the left the presidency and in good terms, they would've liked, but though the Watergate break-in Took Pl. in Chuck Colson. I answered she worked with and you probably know better than me. Mr. Haley but I can't relate him to modern-day like Kelly and Conway was to present truck he was a political advisor if I'm correct with Pres. Nixon and he really had a reputation of being cutthroat in the political business that they, yes, in fact, there are no right to be a myth, who supposedly said he would walk over to his grandmother for the reelection of Richard Nixon like the way it was a myth that really supposedly a pretty good job politically. But he had a friend and this is why it's so important for us as Christians to tell other people about Jesus because you never know the impact you're going to have and he had a friend who just kept killing him and tell him and tell about Jesus and Chuck Colson was at you. I never had the privilege of meeting but it was evidently a very intellectual man they would spend time together and finally through these conversations over years. His friend just didn't give up eventually led Chuck Colson to Jesus. And I might be messing up your little bit but Watergate.
It happened along that time so he didn't get saved after he went to prison. I thought for years to get saved after he went to prison you could we hear about these jailhouse conversion, but he got say before he went to prison and basically did not contest anything that me to basically confess of his archrival patient, in which to take a tremendous amount occurred to me this is clear to me.
One of the top most powerful men in the entire world and God radically change this man's law and he was saved. Yes or you play several of his former colleagues who were not guilty of any crimes volunteered to take his place in prison because his father was very sick and had a family that he was dealing with my volunteered to take his place with the turn that down. He refused and served his own term. I didn't know that what came of that for those you Mr. Haley noticed those you there listening is God just really worked on him in took that time in prison and he got a heart for the ministry to reach out to prison or so when he got out to prison. He formed two organizations.
One was Eminem amount on break a prison Fellowship, which is I think the largest prison ministry in the world today and then he formed another organization called the Colson Center today. Now that he's passed away that become separate ministries and they're both still great ministries with the Colson Center today is run by a guy named John Street who was kind of a protégé tutu I Chuck Colson and and they formed an organization called the Colson Fellowship program is an initially was called the centurion program. I believe in. So what they do so for your listing folks. This is how it all started for me. I wanted to learn more about having a biblical worldview and how to defend my faith so I applied to their program is called the Colson Fellowship program and it was started by as listed Chuck Colson in an negativistic great 10 month is like, get the Masters degree. Mr. Emily is a great program where you you study some of the greatest minds and apologetics him in the country today and and then learn how to defend your faith and because of my vibe that lit me having this national radio show. So what a neat connection I had no idea you knew Chuck Colson and the jury been part of of the Nixon administration ethics. I these are exciting times brother we live in right now. Well, and goes for defining designs Jesus is finding myself was a great place for your just turning the want you to stick around before talking Wallace family is artificial intelligence difficult.

Religious clutter explores Christianity's most tragic limits to fight like a wailing rock dome of the flock to Chris through the winding alleyways of Nancy's own hands, a place that I think you spent the early Jewish court, see firsthand what the Bible took plaintiff touring Israel with Dr. Chris Hughes is a travel I do feel like their American foundation.com and get ready for an unforgettable trip last a lifetime time creating family. There is another line relationship range hearing is joint. One American bill for the US Constitution was written.
What was the government in the United States was the articles of Confederation ratified this date March 1, 1781, signed by such statesmen as Benjamin Franklin Rogerson. It was an attempt to loosely knit the 13 states together the articles of Confederation declared the states hereby enter into a league of friendship to assist each other against attacks made upon them on account of religion, sovereignty, and three. It is please the great governor of the world.
Incline the hearts of the legislatures to ratify the set are no federal transcripts All-American Limited, 1888 USA were effective yesterday while family is an offer of pastor and his servant ministry for many years into the political world got a great new book that talks about artificial intelligence and the threat that it may close to the church and Christians and how we need you understand what's happening with artificial intelligence.
What got you interested that what were you to begin doing all this research to write a book. Well, I've burgled a founding member of the Houston Baptist University Christianity in business and the director that settlers talk earnestly. I was very awesome economist that has a PhD from University of Chicago.
But just has a blaming desire to get the gospel in the business a one morning we were having breakfast and he began to explain to me what was Going to happen in the economic world global finance because of the expansion of the computers and especially artificial intelligence and we talked about this. This was about five years ago. As we talked about this. I just always mind just exploded and I drove away from the breakfast at Cracker Barrel, full of the breakfast that I was even more excited about what was going on in my mind. I've got to pursue this. As I pursued it again to see more and more and more level of concern and one of the levels of concern was who is going to put the value systems and the worldview component algorithms into these machines were the people doing that. What could be the boundary must be the limit machine will go to.
As I began to pursue it of the book just began to take place in many years the years to do it and finally come out.
You know this such an area that most people don't know very much about my son is studying to be an aerospace engineer things he tells me that happening in artificial intelligence and computers is just kinda mind-boggling what's going on in the world today order current global technical social, industrial and other forces that have helped create the rise of machines in our economy today and in our country. Well, of course, the push to be able to boot by the economics make more money is a compelling issue but also about the desire to be powerful a talk with me like a book of former Google engineer by the love endoscopy actually formed on a high church entitled the way of the future and began to worship around that particular idea. Another specialist today.
I said that the time would come, that we would come to the time of the singularity, which would be about 1945.
According to Ray Kurzweil but the singularity would be able to process would be if it will be a connection between human and machine unable to process data at 8 million times a second, so that it is a machine can do that what you call that machine is that the only thing that I can think of that you would call that machine is God. Well, he may have meant that tongue-in-cheek reality is.
This is the case, I can't really build in the book we are wired for transcendence. We human beings are wired for transcendent machines may have great attributes and great organizational element, but we have the spirit and we can get beyond the those things we are supposed to be able to commune with God himself.
And because of that were also supposed to come under the transcendence of God and one of the tragedies in today's church is that we lost the message of transcendence are our our efforts to be seeker friendly in our efforts to be understood by the culture of all these things we have forgotten the transcendence of God. The transcendence of God means that we are answerable to God and when we have people reprogramming the machines will answerable to no one but themselves in the machine in great danger like that.
And I'm standing on the hilltops trying to insert this element into this discussion that Mr. Lamb and 1/2 before the commercial break. You were talking about a couple things I want to touch on the church and one each said that there is actually a church that is in a church are they worshiping him artificial intelligence is God in that church.
Well, that was going to be the direction the church now as I understand it has been disbanded below because it was with her because I got so much joking about it or what. Nonetheless, it did reveal what you would be that the something, but that he could stand in all that it deserves to be worshiped and and this of course has been the entire nature of God where where were to be. As such, all that we recognize this transcendent majesty of the founders of our constitutional Republic understood that they were there were not all evangelical Christians, but I could tell you this. They all understood the transcendence of God because they heard that message propounded in colonial Polk into our sermons and in the great awakening and it was Benjamin Franklin.
To the left loves the client, but I Was Benjamin Franklin when the constitutional convention came into a a an impasse and couldn't go forward let's adjourn this meeting, let's go get some pastors to pray with us and to come back and be with us. Leslie called mighty God that was that with the consensus in H. The consensus is now changed in the consensus is mortal for the mundane more toward the imminent scale and because of that change. We have forgotten the transcendent God that the computers that the AI machines will be answerable themselves to something higher, to themselves, but is putting that stream into algorithm rhythmic making. That's my great concern though is probably somebody just is not a Christian. In most cases can unify again. You told before the break. Maybe somebody just to get you mention transcendence of God several times. Can you divide again for our listeners what you mean by that. Yes, the transcendence of God's attribute of being is awesome majesty when you come into his presence you do it on your knee when you come into him at the basic help you recognize that you can't look into his face. You understand that your answerable to him for your behavior and you're going to give an account at the end of your life with the use of your gifts and what you done and therefore this checklist quickly strikes on you. The fundamental battle in the universe is between cosmos and chaos. The enemy powers of darkness spiritual forces of heavenly places are seeking continually to pull us into increasing chaos. Boundaries are the means of resisting chaos, maintaining cosmos is a great attack in our time is on the boundaries the boundaries of family the boundaries of church the boundaries of personal behavior. All development transcendence of God calls us to those higher grade. So where will the machine get back. And what about killing examples I read about the technician was having lunch with a fellow Asking questions about these things.
Finally, the technician said these things will come to the point that they could destroy it, and the man who was having lunch with the book.
Why will this what is this me because all this will be good about having lunch with him said, why would be good. He said because it's the obvious next step in evolution achieved biologically the human being, but beyond the human being there something else, something else is is a great machine that is the transforming machine.
It is the most powerful machine, but are probably that we are so wired for transcendence that it is like if we were in the so horrible and we were dying with first and we would have such a compelling desire for water.
We would guided any old hole that we could find no matter how many animals I wallowed in it that would be our nature. Because of the need for transcendence over the transcendent one is the machine. The machine determines our ultimate questions and we have such a hunger, as Augustine said Augustin the human heart was made by God and for God and only God can fill it all of those are the things that we must face in this hour more than just economic initiate when you're talking about this first thing about my mind. We started talking about it is like the time of the Tower of Babel. People were seeking things beyond God and try to become God themselves almost like the evolution that you're talking about here what you think is the end goal of this technology.
The goal of this technology as we know it right now is the trend human actually recommend with what will protect older motor was talking about is the great that we will come to the point we can integrate ourselves to the machine and therefore we can live forever. Certainly there will be heaven art with the heaven we create with our hands.
We do not have it all, but nevertheless that we will be so united to the machines that we will function as one unit. That's the ultimate goal on a personal scale right now. Of course another goal is to live to the point of omniscience, knowing all play this look at the attributes of God is revealed in the Bible and you will see the unspoken and perhaps even unrecognized goals of those who are developing the machine you think so are they talking about please forgive my ignorance but I don't know too much about all this. Are they talking about creating a being that is maybe part human flesh and in part machine and that how they plan to do this well club machine aspects with the pectin, knowing ability of the human being. Knowledge capacity and the understanding of the human being based on the interests of the values worldview during your God works on worldviews a little understand this but will encompass a new world worldview of the machine that happened this is really to move us further away from God as a culture and society. I would listen. Yes, it will in effect the title of my book is who will rule the coming God looming spiritual crisis of artificial intelligence.
Everybody is talking about them that the knowledge aspects of this but but no one is thinking about the spiritual aspect and the spiritual implications are immense because this will determine whether we live or die.
At some point down the line and I'm not being sensational about this.
People who are studying it, understand that this is where we might be headed. Ultimately, until this was one of part of the book who will rule the coming God with a small G, of course, looming spiritual crisis of artificial intelligence when it is just scary to think about all this. Is it were learning about it today will in the book you talk about called metadata believe in data mining. What is that of words that the leaders will metadata his gargantuan amounts of data that our brains can't even handle but the machine is being built so that it can also another backup is what's emerging right now.
It's already here this emerging big time and that's the meta-verse in the meta-verse enables this patient in the meta-verse enables a human being to enter into this world or is there is part of their senses are concerned itself with even the touch components are being put in place they can enter this entire new universe. In the end they will have an avatar who represents them in and who becomes male and and I spent hours and hours and hours.
There hooked up the machinery that is able to project all of this is able to do more than that it's able to convey the experiential element in a way that living in reality, only as done in the past, but now the meta-verse will allow people to enter that kind of calls will a virtual world that they created for themselves close if you're listening today I want to stick around second definition was talking to all family also rises more efficiently intelligence technical commercial break. We write back and learn more about going on metadata data. My thinking has a strong Christian heritage, most Americans don't know the truly important role God and the Bible is indicated and found American foundation Dr. Chris performing with crystalline bargaining journey of discovering the hidden and read much of America's Christian heritage up close and personal, and how it evolved over the learn about the government and the mental health new kind of Republic when they acknowledge the creator from its very inception the truth about the creation of man, about the fate of the mounting father Christian principles America.com join this show is brought to you by generous Joe's coffee company with the Christian perspective, this is the answer that Christians and conservatives have been looking for a coffee company that gives back to causes you care about.

Visit our website firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how you and your church can join and support this exciting movement book about this in perspective, my guest today is Ms. Wallace family.
Even written a book about artificial intelligence that is just fascinating. I want you to go to Amazon right now.
Not a problem with your own good Amazon where you buy your books in purchase today who will rule the coming God's the looming spiritual crisis of artificial intelligence will talk about artificial intelligence and help people are going to live in this matter. Verse were trauma before the commercial break is really just reminds me of him in the book of Daniel. The Bible talks about that in the end days there will be a knowledge explosion taking place.
Do you think this artificial intelligence might be a portion of the fulfillment of that prophecy that Danny was talking about estimated like I'm about to start this week teaching that I do at our church. The entire study will be exponential because were living in the exponential hero when things are moving not just at an average placement of exponential and that sort report audit or other I believe that in the book of Revelation that the Babylon symbol of the Babylon idea is that the picture of the fallen world system. The Babylonian world system is what I call it an inlet system were sitting all sorts of things that compare with ancient Babylon taken quite another book about the election last year called to medical Babylon in which I talk about talk about Nebuchadnezzar, and in certain certain similarities positively or negatively between that the mental quest is not the fundamental warfare is between cosmos and chaos in this world and what chaos does is drive us into desperation so that we begin to receive whatever some superior playing some transcendent thing, something that we determine to be transcendent, will how that will teach us to respond at all. This change I have a chapter entitled the idle faculty of John Calvin himself said that every human being who denies God five to become an idol factory because we got them a God were going to create something and this is a great danger of artificial intelligence and all of the movements that are being propelled in the face of it not to scratch the bag. That's the big question. Right now every culture is based on a consensus of ideas, every cultural screen is is speeding at some kind of combined consensual world and those who set the consensus of the most powerful people in that culture and our culture right now.
Consensus establishment is the elite of information entertainment academia, government and corporations. Those formed the consensus that doesn't mean I'm not suggesting they have an annual meeting at all come together as they watch the consensus now, but they gravitate toward one another, they themselves come to into an agreement about what the culture ought to believe in what the culture ought to accept and when they began doing that and that's what the information establishment begins promoting that to our mind continually blasting continually.
The entertainment establishment makes movies that appear on gigantic screens are in our own oh that show some imagery that relates to this new consensus. The academic establishment confirms it was some kind of academic credentialing. Oh yes, which must be true likely to harbor. This must be true. This is what the faculty of Yale is believing the governing establishment of the governing elite within the app against the bill policy on and begin state implemented bring into the culture of the new consensus based on the wall and what we see happening now in the CT movement and other types of things occurring our culture and course number for the corporate establishment says faith is felt these T-shirts with this kind of slogan this elderly finish to the cell and people want to be popular.
They will be accepted. So when when this happened, the consensus has been set and and the public is gone into it, you lose your job if you don't give allegiance to it. Ultimately, this is another dimension that we have to face a list this not a IH list please give yourself answer these different industries are coming together and and or shaping the view of what we see you really changing culture me.
The torrents write a book about the sexualization of of our children in America today because like you said they use TV and movies to normalize where there is a homosexual movement of the transgender movement when you see on TV you read about the magazine. The kids are seen as social media is normalizing things that just a few decades ago were seen as aberrant sexual behavior or evil sought SRC what you're saying and how other shaping culture will how do you think is a change the culture here as it can affect our view of God is a culture as a society of the consensus of the society is going to embrace some sense of that is all all and it will bravely that's why I talk about the idle correctly used on Calvin Klein will work with other clinically our own God and that that's over.
This is where it will really become a realized kind of thing that we feel like we were really touching. But the problem is we can touchexternally. We can consummate our brains, but what about the human spirit, spirit, soul and body in the Bible is very clear that this is the way were constructed.
God is try. You try it, and sadly where fallen these functional dimensions within us are still barren are still working. So the spirit is at the core of it all in. In the technologies there's no room for the spirit there's a there's a fleeting kind of process you can build a machine that can think in some measure has my set eyes are so large and so the honestly has a body of physical dimension, but it does not have a spirit, it can commune with the ultimate extent communed with the transcendent majestic holy God. The problem is if someone Wire into that machine compound of behavior and judgment then we are human rights where in a lot of trouble is kind of scary when you think about all of it so controls the human race. How should we as Christians react to this omission. We accept the changes taking place in technology or do we need to get about that group would make her little more about Christian biblical influence what what should we do as Christians. Yes number one Christians need to go out to Silicon Valley aware that Silicon Valley representation is a very good job there is been a race. Another recent story about how how hard it is to be a Christian in those arenas but but I witness this is a mission field is as dangerous as an initial bill we've ever been in.
But we need to be there. Number number two. The church must wake up the message of transcendence, focus need to recover this message help me get beyond the messages that teach me not to worry, you have more peace and joy more money and then gold teeth and all kinds of things let's get beyond that and let's get to the real deal which is which is the need for transcendence in our lives that we must give account to God, we must worship him. I just praise him, but worship him place a spanking in an is the point giftedness. What is done course but worship is is simply the recognition of the reality of his awesomeness and giving response to that without what I realized. And then in the whole.
The two places where where this battle can be thought most effectively church and the home. The biblical church, Bible-based church and the biblical family. This is where the battle must be weighed because the laws are not going to change. This is going to happen. Science will go where science can go and say we have a sense of this is the only not realistic, but I don't do that so so we've got to teach our children worldview.
78 is my favorite song in this regard that teach the children. Your your your family scarcely teach them the world the drives your family and should love your family and the church is recovering again the sense of the transcendence of God, a mighty Fortress is our God. We need to return to that understanding.
This is really great advice that you're giving for Christians and families and for pastors is really disturbing to see that any pastors in the country today don't really preach the whole inspired work out a lot of people professed pastors. Sometimes I wonder if they even believe it, the whole Bible is true. It is scary. What's happening in churches today, and if you mention the founding fathers earlier in the show got help. At that time it was pastors who really took a stand help to steer with a culture was going.
Most pastors today in America at least, really got away from them. So I thank you for the challenge. We need more men of God stand in the pulpit and preach the whole word of God to not avoid the issues that seem controversial if you will and in our culture today, but to really take a stand and you also get great advice there on what we can do is families you you're talking about how Psalm 78 and and how we need to teach worldview to our children to teach them a legacy in the history of our faith and really you know all throughout the Bible God gives examples of tickly of the Old Testament where he would have men and women of God to build build not just altars, but to build some kind of monument where they could remember of the important points of their faith because God wanted them to teach that to the next generation. I have been reading through judges this week and God talking to his children. The children of Israel at that time about the importance of remembering the great things that God has done and remembering maintenance of their faith.
And I think that we have failed as a society. In many cases, and particularly the church and Christian all to teach our children the great things that God has done for us. And remember that we serve a great God is not just a mythical character that we read about the Bible but is alive and well today miracles today that he still performed and we don't celebrate these great victories as a church and as a Christian family anymore. That is correct that that's where the battle has to be one that's where the battleship befall right there in the family that godly family and the church and if you notice where the prime spiritual types are as well as the crime social chart is boundary. Physical boundary of the nation. Whether it's the boundary of sexuality and gender. These these are all the things are under attack in our time because without boundaries.
Chaos can go and spread anywhere it wants to, which is like cancer could do anything he wants to do without proper boundaries in the Bible calls us to what is the consensus establishment told they told with a boundaries don't matter just just do what you want to do, except for the fact that they won't boundaries. They have guards or other out my travel on private jets because like they have they can establish their own boundaries and those that will the big boundary is holy, awesome, exalted God be praised by his people and to be praised by all the people of the world and live by that attitude, praise and worship given us a lot to think about today, particularly the boundaries you need is a church and as Christians to have the vision allows folks with Wallace Finley. I talked to him about the book is about artificial intelligence and decision of the others stick around you right back with more name and long for individual life can be difficult for social media, graphics cards give us a call today at 704984242 connect with the design of social crowded with viewpoints voice condition after a seven.

The United States of America has a strong Christian heritage, most Americans don't know the truly important role in God in the Bible is indicated and found American foundation Dr. Chris performing crystalline bargaining journey having read much of America's Christian heritage up close and personal, and how it evolved over the government and the mental health new kind of Republic when they acknowledge the creator from its very inception the truth about the creation of about the fate of the mounting father Christian principles.com join today's Wallace family was talking about a lot of books written over 20. I encourage you to go to Amazon where you purchase your books and check out these books will talk today about his book who will rule coming God to the looming spiritual crisis of artificial intelligence. Mr. Hanley you have a website where they get that you heard that you sold on Amazon go to sold Amazon Christian books.com and all the other will encourage you posted to buy this book there.
So what is going on today in technology and were talking earlier about how Daniel talked about a knowledge explosion. There's really a knowledge explosion going on to artificial collagen in our world today and is is there's this new meta-verse, which is something I didn't really know that much about that we talked about today is people distributable to plug-in and cut a live in this crazy world I said you think that videogames have paid up art in conditioning the next year younger people in the next generation to be more accepted and acceptable to have this matter. Verse work or to have artificial intelligence. Engaging more in their lives absolutely is not just this, not just videogames, but it is the entire output comes from the consensus establishment.
I talked about the earlier in the program because everything that we've been conditioned to do. Now I find myself with my television set goes off.
I can't get to it. I find myself almost like an addict trying to figure out how to get my PD setback on so I can watch Andy Griffith again so I can watch details maybe but good work work work work additional things worse than that. And so we've got to try to sustain that hi we get our bet. That sense of satisfaction we get from from that moment. This is the way psychology works goes all the way back to Harvard and in behavior modification and all the wonderful ideas the so-called wonderful ideas are big sarcastic that have come out ugly. What should've been our best institutions but gave us poisonous ideas you think we see movies like Terminator and things like that you think there's a point where the machines will be able to think independently and to become at a danger to humans. As far as your turning against humanity or maybe even being under demonic control.
Well, there's no question about that in my mind, I think, as I said earlier that this is one of the major goals of old blue but I don't think people are sitting around in the Silicon Valley site. How can we produce a machine that will hurt humanity or machine that could master humanity just delivered doing that like her honestly saying how can we build a machine that could better serve humanity. But if I don't have boundaries of transcendence in their own minds and their worldview is going to have a definite different definition provided yours about how that best interest will be served rust. We would say the best interest of humanity is to open the book, the word of God and to recognize that the Bible is kind of like the operators manual that comes with those big computer machine that tells us how to function as well as what to believe. It tells us what the values are and what we do see and so that is the word that should be should be in printed interest elements in a positive word about I'm not a Luddite Luddite was a person who lived in the 16th century in England and worked in a cotton mill and the Luddites got so upset about all the machinery that they thought was going to take away their jobs. They begin destroying the machine I would be an absolute hypocrite if I said that we need to destroy this whole play. I wrote my book on a very smart machine and that smart machine was suspended with other thousands and millions of others. Shortly machines all across the world.
I would much rather have scan MRI that I would exploratory surgery so I'm extremely grateful for all of the advances of technology and I don't. I'm not calling us to tear down this whole brick structure I would be would be affected by ask that anyway you might off the air. We might go there.
But what were calling for is a recognition that this has a spiritual dimension to it, and that there is a consensus that has been formed that is very secular and because of that the kind of values in this kind of barometers need to be wired agrees machine must be recognized and there must be an ethical and moral, and even a spiritual dimension to the machine.
What if, what if we if we told machine about God. What will most beautiful stories are no amount of scummy Alabama believers Tuscumbia are you and I both for that region of the world and it was the story of Helen Keller the girl. The lady who was blind and deaf and what it was like living in that in that imprisonment. But she had a different attitude. She had teachers who encouraged her and so forth and finally one day one of her teachers told her about Jesus and told her about God and her response was oh, I've always known them. I just didn't know what you called it. She always had the sense that he was there will I'm not sure how you profile you put that into a machine, but somehow if there could be that understanding at the at the knowing level of knowledge level of that machine that we human beings have something the machine does not help. We have a spirit and that the machine is to encourage our spirit, our spiritual quest and our spiritual desire that the machine itself can become a part of been spreading the news of the gospel of the kingdom over the whole world look the end of history.
The whole purpose of district in Matthew 24. Now that this course is when Jesus said this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all of the world to all of the ethics, all of the people groups and then the end of the Colossus.
Everything will come so the whole purpose of history itself is the proclamation of the gospel of the kingdom in all of the world, and the machine would be a very important and is already a very important aspect of this. So rather than just calling on Nevada Bobby, destroy all the machines let's understand what what we are allowing the machine to do to us and let's reverse that by having the machine do something for the gospel of the kingdom.
That's a great idea to use unit many times Satan has these ideas of technology or whatever it may be to maybe hurt God's eternal plan, but there are ways to use those same things for God's kingdom as well, so probably a member when you are doing research to write the book that you borrowed about all kinds of advancements. What do you think is coming down the pipe or something that you learn will be happening in the world of articles on intelligence that we can be looking for the coming years.
I think I think the most intense advancements for the common area of the better course and I think as we learn more and more about what that means and I encourage your listeners to check that out back of verse ME TAB ERS E it is is a parallel universe. It's a parallel world and and people can enter into it. As I said earlier they can enter into it not. I can't step into that machine little step into it. They will play where the device around her head that that is is presenting a complete input and they can tap into it.I think the advancements really can see coming of the members is going to be a heightened acceptance rate experience so that one can wire their sensory receptors.
Their nervous system somehow I entered into that machine also is Ray Kurzweil who was a very poor futuristic technology expert says that he expects the the singularity to arrive about 2045 singularity is the merger of human and machine at some level so pleased to things that are verse and the singularity. I think it will really see the greatest advance in terms of quantity fastest speed of achievement.
Pretty scary when you think about it and as I listened to you are thinking of movies that have been known in recent years, as you talked earlier about how different sectors of the culture time together, particularly in movies and entertainment industry and videogame to condition us in your already movies the superhero Marvel movies already talk about one another parallel universe. Or maybe many parallel universes so your talk without just like what were already deconditioned. Whether we realize it or not. For this meta-verse that you're talking about because were being told. Typically, the younger generation. These movies were superheroes that these many different parallel universes may exist in there or have even been movies. I guess the technology is already out there near where you can do virtual what I've seen people be able to put is almost like fancy sunglasses and hopes to their computer and their playing golf of the hunting or will or will running so that stuff is happening right now and to condition us for what you're talking about. This is something in closer, listen to some distant future.
This is happening today and so we need to prepare ourselves as Christians, of how we got a response about a time Mr. Haley but tell them again.
