2 Timothy 3:1-5But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.
Guess what folks…Artificial Intelligence is here!
Okay, I get it. A majority of people probably might have an interest to be the most intelligent and knowledgeable person on earth.
Some even may want to be smarter than God.
The thought of out thinking God has however been on the mind of mankind from the beginning of time…or should I say, was on the mind of man, and that is where we lost.
Right now in the headlines there is news about Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Perhaps, John Q. Public doesn’t give a crap about Artificial Intelligence. But we ought too.
Artificial Intelligence is now a part of our daily lives and some don’t even know it.
I am pretty sure you are aware of the smart phone. But behind that useful little piece of metal, plastic and glass are codes that pretty much dictate the, who, what, why and when, and how of our lives.
Data is continually being stored about who we are and what our likes, dislikes, associations and lifestyle is all about. We have put every little secret into our smart phone and eventually, our smart phone will be smarter than we are.
I don’t have to be convinced any longer that we are living in the present of Artificial Intelligence and there is no turning back.
Let’s get to the heart of the matter.
Mankind has always had a desire to be smarter than God.
We tend not to give God credit for much these days. Even the Bible has become obsolete to people who believe their intelligence can create them a happy life, successful career and for some, attain power and wealth in the world.
Right now, laborers in certain parts of this country have high expectations of seeing their old manufacturing jobs reemerge. They are betting against hope that all is well.
Well, it is not. Not only are general laborers in for a rude awakening.
But anyone who is under the belief that traditional jobs will always exist.
A number of years ago a business professor stated that within a period of twenty-years, America would be a “service” driven nation. In his words, most of the jobs that basically needed physical dexterity would have to give way to automation. He was right. Here we are today depending on Artificial Intelligence to make us happy, comfortable and wise.
Artificial Intelligence is here and is only expanding…my advice to you is to learn as much as you can early on and don’t brush this warning aside.
Eventually, those who believe Artificial Intelligence will be able to save them, will lose.
And at the end.
God will get the glory.
