“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Proverbs 1:7 ESV
Technology is so crazy advanced. It can be helpful, but to that same degree it can be used for evil! Sci-fi of the past is our reality today!
Recently I was shocked when I read an article about how through AI technology someone can take a three second sound bite and make it sound like you over on a video or phone. We’re talking a full conversation. Obviously, this has some very serious, and dark implications. Check out this Microsoft invention at https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2023/01/microsofts-new-ai-can-simulate-anyones-voice-with-3-seconds-of-audio/
I was also led to read another article about how AI can now generate text that appear to have originated from a human. At this point the way you can tell what’s human and what’s machine is by the use of “the” and perfect grammar. So, to reveal something is from a human we must now throw in some typos and “wonky” words. Check out this article at https://www.technologyreview.com/2022/12/19/1065596/how-to-spot-ai-generated-text/. I am sure they will figure out how to use this for evil!
These are scary days! We need discernment in ways never imagined. This is the stuff that made Sci-fi so intriguing years ago. Now it is our reality!
Pray that this whole corrupt computer enslavement would be exposed and safe guards be put in place! Pray that the church would wake up to the evil agenda operating at every level of society, especially under the guise of tech. Ask God to protect you and grant you discernment to walk in Him with confidence in this hour. Pray that the fear of the LORD would be greater than the fear of man’s wickedness!
