Has Amazon Alexa Become “Another Jesus?”

After coming across TWO seemingly conservative and/or Christian publications that more or less looked to Alexa as “being some sort of god“, I felt compelled to shed some TRUE biblical light on the matter!

First of, Alexa (in and of itself) is in NO way, shape or form God or A god! Lets just be VERY clear on this, folks! The bible says there’s only ONE true God (Jesus Christ Almighty). All other “gods” are just worthless “imitations!”

The first publication was from Christianity Today (of ALL places!) In THIS September 2018’s issue, on page 30, written in green bold letters, declares the following: 

ALEXA IN CT

My soul is BEYOND GRIEVED over this! My soul was HYSTERICALLY SCREAMING ON THE INSIDE when I read this! WHAT BLASPHEMY!!!!!!! ;( Since WHEN has Alexa (in and of ITSELF) become a “Savior” to anyone IN PLACE OF JESUS? This was both SHOCKING and HORRIFYING to me! But folks, it doesn’t stop THERE……..it gets worse! Much, much worse……..:( 

ANOTHER CT (Christianity Today) article from 1/6/2017 reads like THIS: “Amazon’s Alexa Delivers Your Daily Devo in Your Favorite Authors’ Voices. Okay folks, if the line “your favorite author’s voices wasn’t weird enough, it’s the very first line in that article that’s produced one of THE MOST blasphemous lines in Christianity EVER UTTERED!

“ASK ALEXA AND IT WILL BE GIVEN YOU“. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, FOLKS!?? This flies DIRECTLY in the face of JESUS’S VERY OWN WORDS in Matthew 7:7-8 (nevertheless, during one of his MOST IMPORTANT biblical sermons, the SERMON ON THE MOUNT):Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened”

So what, Alexa replaces Jesus now? WHAT IS THIS? I guess it’s not surprising overall since Christianity Today has started to turn more “liberal” throughout the past few years, but that one line really tops the cake! (And what breaks my heart the most is that the author just has NO IDEA how spiritually deceived she is {or was?} when she wrote the article! I pray that Jesus Christ has mercy upon her soul!)

Another line in the article states, ‘As YouVersion put it, “Speak, and let God’s inspired Word speak to you.” At first glance, the “concept” of this might not seem so bad. But folks, we’ve got to truly examine this piece by piece, layer by layer, BIBLICALLY! God’s Written Word is supposed to speak to us in our SPIRITS, not through some artificially intelligent device that ALSO says such things such as: “Jesus Christ is a mythical being”.

In other words, the article actually encourages Christians to put their faith, trust and love into ALEXA ITSELF, instead of into Jesus Christ (where is where all their faith, trust and love SHOULD BE!) Does anyone else see the spiritual trouble in this? Most spiritual skeptics would probably tout it off as: “Oh, it’s just an app/technology, it’s not like anybody truly worships it (as in prays to it), right?” 

Well, enter the next article……more or less from Fox News (what’s supposed to be considered a highly conservative site!) The article headline (OP) from 9/1/18 reads: “MY DAUGHTER PRAYED TO ALEXA……..” 

Can anyone see what’s wrong with that? I see several things wrong, here. First off is that his daughter PRAYED to Alexa – the way a born-again Christian person would normally pray to Jesus! Therefore, if Alexa (in and of ITSELF) has now become likened onto a “new Jesus”, then Houston, we’ve got a problem!

But that’s just ONE parent who’s publicly admitted their kid prayed to “Alexa”. What about all the OTHER parents out there that let their kids do the same? What about all the so-called born-again Christians out there who’ve “innocently” (or so they told themselves, anyways) PRAYED to Alexa?

In SO many different type of ways, Alexa has become likened onto a “god” or a “new Jesus”. And if that doesn’t send spiritual shivers down one’s spine, then I don’t know what would! Many people – even Christians alike – are now starting to treat Alexa “as if she were an actual person!” But again, it all goes back to the artificial technology thing. It’s one of the most powerful spiritual deceptors!

Satan likely asked his demons: “How can we make talking to demons both innovative, affordable, fun, convenient, and ADDICTIVE?”. “I know”, a demon likely said. “*Family-Friendly Artificial intelligence*”. And thus, the “Alexa” and “Siri” etc. was born! And as time goes on, the “technology” is becoming more and more advanced! And oddly enough, the more “advanced” the technology becomes, the more “human” it tries to make ITSELF look and the more “addicting” it becomes!

That’s why I say if you have an “Alexa”, UNPLUG IT!!! Let Satan and his demons know that you will NOT take part in their ungodly schemes to SUCK AWAY YOUR SOUL! And IF you see an ad promoting “Christian programming” on Alexa, PAY IT NO ATTENTION! For it’s Satan’s hope that you will USE Alexa’s “Christian programming” INSTEAD OF reading your bible, in the hopes that he’ll be able to DECEIVE YOU AWAY FROM A TRUE SPIRITUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST! Cause remember folks, that’s what this technology was *DESIGNED* to do – to take you AWAY from Jesus Christ/Salvation!

Now, I know there’s probably gonna be some Christians out there who disagree with me, (specifically those who play BotRadioNetwork and what not). But folks, I’m telling you, this “talking A.I. thing” is one THE MOST POWERFUL spiritual deceptors that Satan has on the market! Why? Because it seems so “innocent”. It doesn’t have glowing red eyes or a “demonic voice”. It doesn’t “openly” (as far as I know) glorify Satan. And yet, it spiritually glorifies Satan all the same. Why? Because instead of Jesus Christ himself that we’re talking to, we’re talking to this “device” that Satan only WANTS us to think is “human”.

Furthermore, if ALL a Christian is doing is playing BotRadioNetwork on their “Alexa” and NOT reading the bible and NOT spending time in reflection and in prayer, then they’re listening to that “Christian programming” in vain, do you see where I’m going with this, folks? As a human species, we have short attention spans. We can listen to ALL the Christian programming we want to but if we’re also not APPLYING it to our LIVES, then the Christian programming and us listening to it has done us no service! Make sense? And not only that, but do YOU trust Alexa to give you the CORRECT bible passage (and its context) from the CORRECT bible version (KJV)? 

Here is just a random online photo I found which pretty much illustrates the point that I’m trying to make throughout this entire post (about the “heavenly glorifying” OF Alexa by “lukewarm Christians/people in general”):

ALEXA WITH ANGEL WINGS

And I can see right now where Satan is going with *allowing* all the “Christian programming” on Alexa……He wants to TWIST that Christian programming to HIS ungodly glory! And how does he do that, folks? Easy. When Christian people (and families) put all their glory INTO the Christian programming (and Alexa) ITSELF rather than into JESUS CHRIST (where all the glory giving BELONGS!) He can also utilize the Alexa to tout off watered-down or incorrect bible versions or passages, as well as “liberalize” and “relevise” the gospel!  

And believe it or not, both “Siri” and “Alexa” were actually “testing grounds” for a much BIGGER spiritual project that Satan had up his sleeve – The “Image of the Beast” and “real-life Skynet”. Okay, so what’s Skynet, some of you might be asking? Skynet is the name of the A.I. company in The Terminator movies with Arnold Schwarzenegger. [And if you haven’t watched the movies, I’d highly recommend going to Youtube to watch the movie TRAILERS, so you know and can see firsthand what I’m talking about here: especially part 3 and part 6?]

But anyways, Skynet (or the “concept” of it, anyways) is actually a REAL organization, folks! So what does that mean in plain English, folks? It means that they – the elite – knew ALL ALONG that robots/machines/Androids would someday take over the world (and natural-born humans) and thus, developed an organization that has attempted (and is attempting) to “control the tech”. However, as it is in The Terminator movies, the “tech” will someday SUPERCEDE all human intelligence, and then improve on its OWN intelligence, until it spirals out of control. This is what’s known as “The Singularity”.

So how do “Siri”, “Ok Google” and “Alexa” fit in to all of this? Simple. They are part of the building blocks that Satan will use to “build on”. Think of ALL the plugged-in Alexas there are in the world today, for instance. Then imagine all the CYBER-KINETIC POWER that generates. And that’s just a small PIECE of the puzzle that will someday soon become known as “the real-like Skynet”.

Okay, lets delve a little deeper into this for a moment. Siri, Ok Google and Alexa are just “spiritual doorways”. And what lies beyond those doorways is nothing good, trust me on this! Sophia is the Greek Word for “Wisdom”. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the latest A.I. Android robot is named “Sophia”.

However, what we need to understand here is that Sophia, Han, Bina48, etc. run on what’s called “block-chain technology”. In other words, ALL Android robots are “plugged into” and run on the same “computer database”. And it’s actually a DE-centralized centralized computer “database” – meaning, a centralized database that is DE-centralized and isn’t solely controlled by any one gov’t or group of people – run on Quantam computers, the FASTEST computers known to man. One Android can acquire skills from another Android and so on and so forth (real-life Skynet, anyone?) And each Android BECOMES SMARTER & SMARTER over time.

Now, do Siri, Alexa and Ok Google ALSO run on “block-chain technology?” Your guess is as good as mine. But given as how Alexa “acquires” such a GROWING number of skills in such a SHORT amount of time would lead me to believe that they ARE using some sort of “block-chain technology”. But yet, one thing is apparent, here; Siri, Alexa and Ok Google will no doubt play a HUGE ROLE in Mark of the Beast/Image of the Beast Technology. In fact, I can picture the Amazon Alexa interacting with the “Mark of the Beast” and the “Image of the Beast” and vice versa.

That being said, are YOU saved in the name of Jesus? If YOU were to die tomorrow, do YOU know for sure that YOU’D go to heaven? If not, then why not? What do YOU plan to do to change that? Folks, we NEVER know when we’re gonna die! It could be tomorrow, next week, next year, 15 years from now, WHENEVER! And once we die, that’s IT! There’s no purgatory, no riding a spiritual subway train for years, no becoming your neighbor’s potted plant, no beer and pool party!

Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”

 

Subtle Mocking of Jesus/Bible (Sometimes Blatant) IN PLAIN SITE!

We’re all aware of cases where the mocking of Jesus/the bible is BLATANT and in your face (the TV show “Black Jesus”, the open mocking of Jesus/the bible at gay pride rallies, etc.) But what about the cases that are NOT so clear cut? And most of it’s SO subtle, you don’t even hardly notice it, at first. And if/when you DO notice it, you’re not totally sure what to think of it (if anything) at first. That’s how the Devil rolls, folks….. Lets examine some of those examples in closer detail…..   

1). When movies and TV shows are given BIBLICAL NAMES but have NOTHING to do with true, BIBLICAL CHARACTERS/THE BIBLE! (And in the last few years, I’ve been noticing more and more of this “trend” – these few listed are just the TIP of the iceberg! There’s many, many more! But for the sake of time & space, I’ll just limit it to these few so you get a good idea): 

  • ALPHA and OMEGA: Journey to Bear KINGDOM” (ONLY JESUS‘S ALPHA & OMEGA!)
  • ARMAGEDDON” (so-called “alien invasion” that has NOTHING to do with the bible!)
  • THE GOSPEL of US” (has absolutely NOTHING to do with the bible or biblical topics)
  • “RE-ALIVE” (A movie line in the movie blasphemously states: “LAZARUS, COME FORTH!”, not to mention that the name “Re-alive” might possibly be mocking the concept of “being spiritually born again, in CHRIST”)
  • “DAY OF RECKONING” (flies in opposition to Isaiah 2:12, which talks about the Lord’s ETERNAL JUDGMENT)
  • “LIFE” (pushes the “intelligent life on Mars” theory…….UNBIBLICAL!!!!)

And folks, that’s just the movies that technically DON’T have any sort of “biblical bent” to them. What about the ones that DO? 

  • I AM GABRIEL: ALL THINGS MADE NEW” (ABSOLUTELY BLASPHEMOUS MOVIE! Only JESUS can “make all things news”, only JESUS became human flesh in the form of a newborn child and only JESUS is to be bowed down to, NOT ANGELS!)
  • 200 Degrees” (This movie MOCKS Old Testament Prophet Daniel’s THREE Friends that were placed in the Fiery Furnace of Nebuchadnezzar!) 
  • The Shack” (Jesus is NOT a “woman”, nor does Jesus preach a “watered-down gospel of Salvation! ABSOLUTELY BLASPHEMOUS!)
  • THE RESURRECTION OF GAVIN STONE” [Yes, it’s a “Christian comedy” but the NAME of the movie should’ve been called something else! Because not only does the NAME actually MOCK the resurrection of Christ but ALSO of Lazarus!]
  • Noah” (The BIBLICAL NOAH was NOT a “homicidal maniac”, etc.etc.) 
  • The Bible TV Series” (UNBIBLICAL! Why? Because in the TV series, Drops of Water Got Inside Noah’s Ark, etc. and we KNOW that not a SINGLE drop of water got inside the Ark due to God’s SPECIFIC instructions to Noah about how to paint the entire outside of the boat’s surface with a special tar/pitch SO THAT no water would get in it!)  

But what’s WORSE about this whole situation is people DEFENDING these movies (both so-called biblically-bent, yet UNBIBLICAL movies), as well as the ones that are NOT biblically-bent but take on biblical-sounding names/titles:

https://relevantmagazine.com/culture/film/why-are-so-many-christians-afraid-hollywood-bible-movies

And again, think about the magazine name ITSELF: “Relevant”. That’s exactly what alot of these movies and TV shows are attempting to do: stay “relevant”. However, the word “relevant” is the EXACT OPPOSITE of how Jesus would have us live!

In today’s world, TRUE, BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY is seen as IRRELEVANT by today’s wider, secular culture! And so when we Christians/Messianic Jews (as a whole) try to make biblical Christianity stay “Relevant”, we in turn WATER DOWN THE GOSPEL, WHICH THEN MAKES IT SEEM POWERLESS AND “IRRELEVANT” TO THOSE WHO ARE *UNSAVED*…..THUS the VERY REASON that MAKES the gospel seem “truly irrelevant” to today’s Unsaved Culture, at large! 

2). It doesn’t JUST extend to movies and TV shows. It goes much, much deeper than that. It can ALSO include music and advertising. Lets us examine a couple of examples:

Yeezus blaphemy

Kanye West’s album cover for Yeezus

20171028_181246

A random ad that seems to mock Old Testament David

SPIRIT IN THE SKY, JESUS MOCKING

“I’m not a sinner, I’ve never sinned”

JOEL OSTEEN

Note: It’s not the great “I AM” in the bible that he’s talking about but more about “self-empowerment”. Also….the word “rise?”

In the Kanye West example up above, it’s VERY, very blatant mocking of the bible (atleast in MY opinion). But in the 2nd-4th illustrated examples (as well as the non-biblical movies with biblical names), it’s far more subtle.

I even found MYSELF asking the questions on illustration #2: “Are they knowingly mocking David & Goliath OPENLY? Are they trying to USE the example of David & Goliath for their own financial gain? Are they trying to gain more “seemingly Christian” clients, figuring the Christian clients would be easier to bamboozle? Or are they “subtle Christians” who are using their advertising to try to get people INTERESTED in the stories of the bible?” 

Though it might possibly be the 4th scenario, I’m willing to bet it’s either scenario 1, 2 or 3 (especially in today’s fallen world). My VERY first question was, “Is that MOCKING?” I wasn’t totally sure and I admit that to my shame! And the SAME types of questions popped into my mind when I very first saw the BIBLICAL NAMES/TITLES of movies that had NOTHING to do with the bible/biblical characters! I didn’t have my “biblical thinking cap” on at first……In fact, many Christians today don’t…….at first, anyways! 

Illustrations 3 and 4 are ALSO confusing. Illustration 3 makes it seem like: “oh, that’s okay, he’s just glorifying God the Heavenly Father and his son, Jesus Christ!” But when one examines the LYRICS to the song: “I’m not a sinner, I’ve never sinned”, it becomes all the more apparent that this is NOT a true Jesus-glorifying song but rather a song that seems to come with a “different gospel”. 

Illustration 4 makes it “seem” at first like Mr. Osteen is glorifying the GREAT “I AM THAT I AM”. But instead, it’s more of a NEW AGE book where he tells his readers the following: 

osteen quote

But what the Holy Spirit communicated to me the other day has now become GLARINGLY CLEAR: 

“ALL FORM OF *MOCKING* IS MOCKING……….EVEN WHEN AND *ESPECIALLY* WHEN IT’S *SUBTLE!* AND FURTHERMORE AND EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY SO…….ANY FORM OF MOCKING, SPECIFICALLY SUBTLE MOCKING IS NOTHING SHORT OF *HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE!*” 

Whoa! Those words just blew me away! Are those fateful words hinting that Jesus is EVEN MORE angry at *subtle mocking* than he is BLATANT MOCKING? One can only guess. But the message is CLEAR: Whenever we come across subtle (or even blatant, for that matter) mocking, we can know for 100% sure that YES, it IS mocking and that YES, Satan is trying VERY, VERY HARD to use that subtle mocking against us

On one of the above blasphemous movies (actually on nearly ALL of them), nearly ALL the user reviews are POSITIVE and I’ve hardly seen ANY negative user reviews, calling out the movie and movie producers for making a BLASPHEMOUS MOVIE! That’s scary! Because if people so-called find “hope” in a “false gospel”, then their spiritual hope is also a false hope, INDEED!

So just remember: if you see, hear or come across something and you’re subtly asking yourselves: “is THAT mocking?” (of Jesus/the bible), then it most certainly likely IS! 

“Jesus, I pray that all souls who read this will be enlightened by this and will now better recognize subtle mocking and will IMMEDIATELY rebuke that subtle mocking (within their minds, hearts & spirits) in your great, heavenly name! I also pray that you will stir their hearts, minds, bodies and spirits towards YOU, O Lord, and that you will give them a RENEWED heart & strength & BOLDNESS in you, so that they will NOT be afraid to SPEAK OUT against such *subtle mocking*, even if they are the VERY FIRST person (in their family, workplace, community) to speak out against the subtle mocking they see on those movies/tv shows review sites! And furthermore, whenever they DO speak out against the subtle mocking, use THEIR words to help enlighten and open up the spiritual eyes of others. Amen”.
