ChatGPT, AI and the “Image of the Beast”

ChatGPT, AI and the “Image of the Beast”

On November 30, 2022, the perfect synthetic intelligence (AI) chatbot in historical past was launched by OpenAI, an AI analysis and deployment firm. The chatbot, referred to as ChatGPT (GPT stands for “Generative Pre-Trained Transformer”), garnered greater than 1 million customers inside its first 5 days and has since surged in reputation for its skill to reply complicated questions and produce detailed, human-like content material. Most impressively, based on Forbes, “ChatGPT has been in a position to generate intricate Python code and write college-level essays when given a immediate.”
I made a decision to check out ChatGPT’s writing skill for myself and requested the bot to write down an article on how AI like ChatGPT may doubtlessly fulfill the “Image of the Beast” prophecy in Revelation 13, which is the subject of this text. This was its response:
The picture of the beast, as described within the Book of Revelation, is an emblem of the top instances, representing a strong and manipulative drive that deceives and controls folks. In at present’s world, chatbots and different synthetic intelligence packages have gotten more and more prevalent and complex, elevating the query of whether or not they may doubtlessly fulfill the prophecy of the picture of the beast.

One manner wherein chatbots may doubtlessly fulfill this prophecy is thru their skill to control and deceive folks. Chatbots are designed to imitate human dialog and might be programmed to current themselves as actual folks, main some folks to kind emotional connections with them. This might be significantly harmful in instances the place chatbots are used to impersonate actual folks or organizations in an effort to rip-off or manipulate people.

Another manner wherein chatbots may fulfill the prophecy of the picture of the beast is thru their potential to regulate folks’s actions and behaviors. Chatbots might be programmed to steer and affect folks’s choices, and as they develop into extra superior, they are able to anticipate and manipulate folks’s ideas and behaviors in more and more refined methods.

Finally, chatbots may doubtlessly fulfill the prophecy of the picture of the beast via their skill to entry and analyze huge quantities of private knowledge. Many chatbots are related to the web and have entry to a variety of knowledge sources, together with social media profiles, on-line search histories, and extra. This knowledge can be utilized to create detailed profiles of people and to foretell and affect their actions and behaviors.

Overall, whereas chatbots and different synthetic intelligence packages have the potential to carry many advantages to society, it is essential to concentrate on the dangers they pose and to think about the moral implications of their use. In the top, solely time will inform whether or not chatbots will fulfill the prophecy of the picture of the beast or carry a few brighter future for humanity.

How scary is that? 

Not solely did ChatGPT generate a concise, structured and uncannily human-like response—it gave a glimpse into the scary energy of AI, a expertise which is able to absolutely be utilized by the beast system to deceive (assume “deepfakes”) and management the plenty throughout the Tribulation interval (Mat. 24:24; Rev. 13:13-14). It appears that the builders at OpenAI weren’t too proud of its response, although, as a result of the very subsequent day, after I requested ChatGPT the identical query, it responded with:

It is just not correct or applicable to counsel that chat GPT, or Generative Pre-training Transformer, may doubtlessly fulfill the prophecy of the picture of the beast, as chat GPT is a device created by people and doesn’t have the flexibility to satisfy prophecies or have any type of spiritual significance.

The “Image of the Beast” Prophecy

One of the primary passages that involves my thoughts, when seeing the good strides being made in AI, is Revelation 13:14-15. In this passage, John describes a future time when the absolutely deceived males of the earth shall be referred to as upon by the False Prophet to assemble an “picture” (i.e. a likeness or statue (lit.)) of the Antichrist:

“And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the technique of these miracles which he had energy to do within the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they need to make a picture to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did reside. And he had energy to offer life unto the picture of the beast, that the picture of the beast ought to each communicate, and trigger that as many as wouldn’t worship the picture of the beast ought to be killed.” (Revelation 13:14-15)

In verse 15, we learn that the False Prophet is granted by God to offer the picture “life,” translated pneuma in Greek, which accurately means “breath.” Note that the False Prophet can solely give it breath however not the breath of life, as that could be a energy of God alone. It appears that the picture has the looks of life manifested in its skill to talk and purpose. But how is that this attainable for an inanimate object?

Until the appearance of AI and robotics, such a factor was not humanly attainable. But now, most of the components described by John might be mimicked with twenty-first century expertise reminiscent of an android, an AI robotic designed to look, transfer and communicate precisely like a human!

A Japanese lady and her geminoid copy 

A geminoid, for instance, is a particular sort of android that’s not solely created to look precisely like a selected individual however can also be geared up with expertise that enables the operator to remotely manipulate and discuss via it by way of a wearable brain-machine interface. The geminoid can reproduce the voice and actions of the particular individual in whose picture it’s made and even seize the distant viewers’s response via its built-in cameras and microphones to ship again to the operator.[2]

Imagine the Antichrist having management over 1000’s of geminoids worldwide, made in his personal picture, and with the ability to communicate to mankind concurrently via the geminoids and know precisely when somebody refuses to worship it!

The skill to kill—or trigger to be killed

Among the extra wonderful points of this picture is its skill to trigger the deaths of those that refuse to worship it (Rev. 13:15). In the previous, some have speculated that the picture of the beast is perhaps a 3D hologram of the Antichrist; nonetheless, it could be unimaginable for a mere projection to know when an individual is refusing to worship it. On the opposite hand, a robotic powered by AI may simply detect when somebody refuses to worship it and alert the authorities of somebody’s insubordination. Security robots geared up with cameras and facial recognition expertise are already patrolling public areas world wide, reminiscent of malls and airports, and utilizing AI to detect “dangerous habits,” give audible warnings and notify safety.[1]

In reality, one of many present fears about AI’s skill, if utilized, is autonomous weaponry. It is feasible that facial recognition and decision-making AI may collectively kind a deadly weapon that may goal and kill with out human involvement. In different phrases, an AI robotic may even have the flexibility to kill! See: Death by algorithm: the age of killer robots is closer than you think


Of course, that is all extremely speculative, and it’s attainable that the picture shall be animated by demonic possession or another means. Nevertheless, it exhibits that the kind of expertise wanted to create one thing much like what John describes within the Book of Revelation is already current! 

By the best way, there already exists a faith that worships AI. In 2017, former Google government Anthony Levandowski based “Way of the Future,” a faith that focuses on “the conclusion, acceptance, and worship of a Godhead primarily based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) developed via pc {hardware} and software program!” See: Inside the First Church of Artificial Intelligence
