With the expansion of AI, the over-reliance on technology can impact every way we communicate, including the Sunday morning sermon.
In preparing for a typical week’s sermon at his church, Griffin Gulledge turned to an atypical source: artificial intelligence.
Using his normal means of research, the pastor of Madison Baptist Church in Madison, Georgia, had trouble narrowing down the ways the 12 apostles died. So he opened ChatGPT and asked the artificial intelligence (AI) application. “By seeing the ChatGPT answers, I was able to return to my own resources, knowing what to specifically look for to verify its answer,” said Gulledge.
Beyond using artificial intelligence as another possible research or organizational tool, some have championed AI as the future of the faith.
