“A lot of times when we think about artificial intelligence, we do think about it from this more materialistic type of sense.”
“You’re a human being not because of what you can do, not because you can think, not because you have these abilities, whether physical or mental abilities. You’re a human being and the essence of that is the image of God.”
“You cannot lose the image of God. You are created in God’s image and that’s a designation, something that God has given you and you can’t redefine that.”
“While we’re the crowning point of creation, we’re not God in ourselves.”
“We can also use these tools to communicate truth.”
“In no point should these tools become a substitute for authentic Christian community.”
