With all the buzz about the thousands of AI suites and software released within the last couple of months or so, I’d like to publicly share a few things I’ve found myself discussing often in private.
To start, it’s important to keep in mind that just because certain technologies have recently become available to the general public doesn’t necessarily mean they are entirely new. In fact, many of these technologies have likely been in development and use for years by major corporations and businesses such as Google. For instance, we didn’t learn about the existence of the atomic bomb until it was used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and similarly, the basic cellphone was used by the US Army for almost two decades before it became widely available to civilians. It’s highly likely that the tech we see being released to the public now has been in use in various capacities for some time already.
Utilization & Pros:
In my opinion, this technology is both revolutionary and scary. On one hand, it can speed up productivity in ways beyond our comprehension. For example, with AI aides like ChatGPT, you can write a book, spell check, grammar check, make a song, do a report, form a congressional bill, and much more in moments. At this point it makes you wonder if big name producers have had access to such. However, with this comes serious concerns, particularly in relation to job loss.
Cons & Concerns:
First Concern (Job Loss)
I used to think that the impact of robots and AI on jobs was limited to factory work, retail stores, and the fast food industry, specifically. However, after seeing the recent AI aides, I can now clearly see how many jobs could be negatively impacted or lost over time. This includes not only retail and factory workers, but also photography, video production, writing and editing, customer service, data entry and analysis, driving, marketing, financial analysis, art, healthcare, and more. It is important to recognize that the technology that has been released is not the only technology available. There is likely much more behind the scenes that we haven’t seen yet. It is also worth noting that just because a technology is available, it doesn’t mean it will be adopted by everyone immediately. However, we should still be aware of the potential impact on jobs and work towards finding solutions to mitigate this impact. I can definitely see this bringing about a justification/case for universal income.
Second Concern (Influence of Humanity):
My second concern is related to the potential hidden control and influence of some AI technology. Specifically, I have noticed that ChatGPT has been touted as a potential competitor or could be used to integrate with Google. However, after testing ChatGPT, I have discovered that although it has been fed millions of seemingly “random” data points, it consistently provides politically correct or culturally correct answers. It appears to be fed the same type of information that “fact checkers” are given.
While ChatGPT is incredibly proficient at providing accurate answers to non-cultural, non-political, or non-conspiratorial truth prompts, it may be used to influence people as programmed. It is fascinating to note that the TikTok algorithm in the US is focused on entertainment and distractions, while in China, it emphasizes success, education, and a good work ethnic. Similarly, ChatGPT can be programmed to push certain narratives and influence people’s beliefs and behaviors.
Considering the media’s existing influence on people, it is concerning to think about how tech like ChatGPT could be used to aggressively push particular narratives. I believe that people should remain vigilant and be aware of the potential for hidden agendas when using AI technology. Not only that but I can also see a situation play out where those in control use it to accomplish their depopulation efforts and other goals while acting as if the tech is completely functioning on its own will. That way, they won’t be held accountable for carrying out the same things they’ve once touted publicly with regard to population control and the like.
Third Concern (Dependency and Devolving of Humanity):
My third concern is related to the potential negative impact of advanced technology on society. I am concerned that technology might make people lazier, more dependent, and less knowledgeable about essential trades and skills that are critical for a society’s foundation. It’s not just the possibility of a Skynet or Chaos GPT that we should worry about, but other ways that could set humanity back into the dark ages or third world status. Some movies, such as The Book of Eli, have depicted this scenario.
As we become more reliant on technology, we become more vulnerable to those who control it. If someone were to create a cyber catastrophe (mentioned often by the WEF), for example, internet connections and power grids could collapse, leaving society at the mercy of the ruling elites. This is particularly concerning for those who have been coerced into a guaranteed global income due to the lack of jobs and opportunities during the AI revolution that would have happened generations before.
General take within Biblical Worldview:
Finally, I do believe that these aids can help in many ways. As long as they do not contradict God’s principles, many could use them to stay competitive in the job market and as a means to save money and increase efficiency. However, the concern arises when this technology is used in conjunction with the system of the beast. While I don’t know exactly what it will look like, examples such as v@cs passports, bank cards, and IDs implanted under the skin are clearly unacceptable and should be avoided in my opinion. These types of implementations closely resemble the mark of the beast as described in Revelation 13. Therefore, it is important to be discerning and cautious when utilizing technology in a way that may lead to compromising one’s beliefs and values.
As Ecclesiastes 1:9 states, “there is nothing new under the sun,” and I strongly believe that many of the modern technologies we enjoy today have existed before. The book of Enoch, while not part of the Bible, is mentioned in Luke, Hebrews, and Jude, and I find it hard to find contradictions. In it, it describes how fallen angels who bred with humans taught them various technologies. As we know from the Bible, the world was so wicked that God destroyed it with the Great Flood, burying people, animals, and the known technology of that day. I believe that some of the same technologies and cultural norms will become commonplace again to some extent, based on Matthew 24:37-39, which says, “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be…” This passage goes on to describe how people were going about their daily lives until the flood suddenly came and destroyed everything but Noah and his family. I believe that even some of the technological and cultural realities may be mirrored to some degree in the end times. For instance, I believe that the new-age LGBTQ+ movement is more than just the normalization of homosexuality, pedophilia, and transgender individuals. I believe it is setting a legal system and standard that is conducive to trans humans and fallen angels that once lived among us publicly before the flood. Consider the fact that there are now so many officially recognized genders and identities that a fallen angel, or aka alien, can more easily be integrated into our society under the law. This is not necessarily an absolute truth, and nobody knows the timeline for certain, but I would not be surprised if it were to happen again since it has already occurred in the past. The bible is not a fairy tale and as time goes on more and more people will realize this fact.
In conclusion, this article seeks to neither alarm nor frighten, but rather to discuss the current AI tech boom and encourage us to be like the Sons of Issachar who understood the times and knew how to navigate them for the glory of God. Throughout history, large populations have been deceived and manipulated because of their ignorance or being too busy with life. As we live in the age of technology, we have the opportunity to remain faithful to God, serve Him, and stand for truth against the enemy’s deception and manipulation. We must question and test everything, stand on the Word of God, and His principles despite cultural pressures to conform. We should also not be afraid to be labeled as conspiracy theorists or Bible thumpers. We must remain alert and aware of the world around us, as well as stand for His glory. Remember, when good people do nothing, chaos manifests easily, but when the People of God stand for His glory, the impossible becomes possible.
