What's In That A.I.?

Please take a look at this video by pastor Christ Yoon where he talks about A.I. In this message, Yoon is referring to the artificial intelligence chatbot system called Chat GPT. He shares a clip from a family that had a very strange experience with it in which the A.I. seemed to be indicating it was possessed by an evil spirit. Now, we know that this particular system spews out answers based on the information that has been programmed into it. However, the minute a tech system starts to LEARN, it may be considered an Artificial Intelligence. Therefore, the idea of sentience comes into play. Is it possible for a spirit to dwell inside an advanced computer program that has started to think on its own? There are bible scholars asking that question now and some of them have concluded that the Beast in the book of Revelation may indeed be a reference to artificial intelligence.   

Revelation 13:14–15 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth—by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.  He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.

No one has a solid answer to this question because all of the pieces of the puzzle have not yet been put into place. But, we can seek God for discernment and wisdom.
