According to the IBT article (below) Reverend Christopher Benek, associate pastor of Providence Presbyterian Church in Florida states, “I don’t see Christ’s redemption limited to human beings,” Benek said in an interview with the futurist Zoltan Istvan. “It’s redemption to all of creation, even AI.
He went on to say that “Advanced forms of artificial intelligence should be welcomed into the Christian faith.”
These statements not only provide exemplary proof of his lack of understanding of the bible, they are profoundly apostate of the teachings of Jesus Christ. The idea that an Artificial Intelligent metal robot is even considered a living being is without a doubt the very teachings of the futurists and transhumanists. Moreover, Benek is implying that man has the power to create life. FALSE. This is the very credo that is behind the technological advances sweeping the world today.
And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay -Daniel 2:43 (KJV).
There is a tremendous amount of research and dollars spent on biotechnologies, nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, robotics, human cloning, genetic engineering, embryo research and experimentation, xenotranplantation, transgenesis, cryogenics, mind upload, DNA focused studies that will lead scientists to “unlock the code of longevity’ (eternal life). The very goal powering all of this,- to achieve “immortality.” That is the transhumanist agenda, and it’s of satanic origin. It is compromised mainly with scientists, evolutionists, atheists, who all take on the satanic new age occultist teaching and merge it with science. The problem is, they have sold the idea to the masses.
Christians who are Holy Spirit filled do not entertain ‘immortality in this world,’ type of thinking. When a Christian accepts Jesus Christ, they are given the promise of eternal life, and it is only Christ that can give this gift. And our eyes ARE to be on the Kingdom of God, not earth.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord -Romans 6:23 (KJV).
This so-called ‘pastor’ is an apostate, who clearly does not understand the goal or the false teaching of the transhuman movement, which seeks to place themselves in the position of God, and deem themselves capable of giving man eternal life.
Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it – Luke 17:33 (KJV).
Transhumanist’s (who also worship in their very own church ‘The Church of Perpetual Life), adopted the satanic symbol -a fiery Phoenix logo and a ‘prophet’ (Nikolai Fedorov, a 19th century Russian philosopher who advocated immortality and resurrection of the dead), hold a monthly service to speak about their plans of immortality. According to their website, the mission of the church is to help in the advancement of indefinite life extension not only because it’s “desirable” but also because it’s “what the Creator planned for humanity to accomplish.” The creator, is not God. Its satan. Their ideology is heavily borrowed from Moore’s Law.
They ascertain the human race as we know it, will cease to exist. Computer technology will double exponentially until we enter ‘The Singularity’.
Their utopia and driven motivation is that artificial intelligence, is superior to human reasoning, and creation of that AI, will usher in not only a new peace, but achieve immortality. In order to achieve this, ‘mankind’ must abandon humanity as we know it, and ‘explore’ the universe together. All that to mean, become cyborgs and machines, robots. The Transhumanist manifesto is deeply rooted in Satanic teachings. “surely you shall not die, and you will become like God.”
That manifesto is called technology, and that technology that so many love and worship, is going to be used against mankind in a very dramatic way. It has already started. All humans love technology. In fact, to say that we are addicted to it, is a fair and accurate summation. While technological advances have made life easier, faster, more productive, it has also created a distance between human relationships. That distance is becoming wider, and with severe consequences, as they brainwash society that “AI, Robotics” are our friends, are cool, they are simultaneously planning ways to turn you into their spellbound, emotionless, robot. It is apart of the “great delusion” Paul wrote about in 2 Thessalonians 2:11 (KJV).
- They believe that our species as God created is inferior – and seeks ways to improve it – Cyborgs, AI, Robots, DNA Modification
- Deny that there is a heaven or a hell
- Deny that God created the world or man- and that in fact that everything has evolved. They believe that to continue evolving is ‘our purpose’ and that continuation of evolvement, means finding ways to reach perfection of the race. (the occult of Evolution theory).
- They believe that we are our own ‘god’ and can direct our lives as we wish. “Do what thou wilt”
- They believe life resides in the mind, not in the Spirit or the blood. This is also the belief of the false and occultist teachings of the New Agers-most know this as ‘consciousness’ and ‘meditation of the mind’ or – all formed to usurp the Holy Spirit. And thus the reason we have projects of both head transplants and mind uploading going on, to achieve immortality. There is no soul, no life in automated, programmed beings. PERIOD.
Let’s look at the final authority on the subject of Robots, the Holy Word of our Eternal Savior and Risen King:
When we think of how God breathed life into Adam, your understanding of this should come into focus more clearly.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul – Genesis 2:7 (KJV). Here we see, that Adam did not become a living being until he was given a soul, and it is God who gives and takes life, not man.
Our soul is what has the life, not our consciousness mind as transhumanists believe and teach. “Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of? – Isaiah 2:22 (KJV).” Man who breathes, without the spirit of God is dead. PERIOD. The holy spirit is our redemptive seal to eternal salvation.
When sin was introduced, spiritually, we all died, And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit -1 Corinthians 15:45 (KJV). and that was why Jesus was sent: “The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven – 1 Corinthians 15:47 (KJV).
Without the blood of Jesus and his Holy Spirit, there is no eternal life.
And it is only through Christ, that we find life. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory – Ephesians 1:13-14 (KJV).
Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? -Hebrews 10:29 (KJV).
Satan is trying to teach that to “escape all things” (judgment, consequence of sin, death) is to become immortal, and that is the grand delusion and deception and satanic agenda. The idea that we can live without consequence, and carry on in life serving our worldly desires is the very thing satan planted at the beginning of time, in the Garden of Eden. Jesus teaches us the wages of sin is death.
How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him –Hebrews 2:3 (KJV).
Jesus is the only one capable of giving us the gift of salvation, to live eternally, we must turn lives over to Christ, who came as a man, rose as a quickening spirit, shed his blood to cover our sin, and gave us eternal life. For which, I am thankful, and will forever serve him until I take my last breath.
A robot, Mr. Benek is not a living being. And you have fallen prey to the movement sweeping the world today, the lie that beguiled Eve.

Artificial intelligence and autonomous robots should be encouraged to become religious, a US reverend has said.
Reverend Christopher Benek, associate pastor of Providence Presbyterian Church in Florida, believes advanced forms of artificial intelligence should be welcomed into the Christian faith.
“I don’t see Christ’s redemption limited to human beings,” Benek said in an interview with the futurist Zoltan Istvan. “It’s redemption to all of creation, even AI.
“If AI is autonomous, then we should encourage it to participate in Christ’s redemptive purposes in the world.”
The rise of artificial intelligence in recent years has led several high-profile scientists and futurists to warn of the dangers posed if its development is not kept in check.
In January renowned physicist Stephen Hawking and entrepreneur extraordinaire Elon Musk pledged to ensure that the development of artificial intelligence benefits rather than hinders mankind.
“There is now a broad consensus that AI research is progressing steadily, and that its impact on society is likely to increase,” stated the open letter from the Future of Life Institute, signed by both Hawking and Musk.
“The potential benefits are huge, since everything that civilisation has to offer is a product of human intelligence. Because of the great potential of AI, it is important to research how to reap its benefits while avoiding potential pitfalls.”
Benek believes there is an important aspect to artificial intelligence being overlooked by celebrated scientist Hawking.
“Hawking’s concerns sound scary on the surface, and they are shared by many, but he isn’t considering one very important aspect of humanity that will affect AIs,” Benek said in ablogpost last year.
“Hawking is ignoring that the vast number of the world’s human beings consider themselves to be spiritual beings and how that belief has positively affected the world.
“Who is to say that one day AI might not even lead humans to new levels of holiness?”

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment -Hebrews 9:27 (KJV).
Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it- Luke 17:33 (KJV).
“Power and signs and lying wonders”…rejection of truth, and for this “God shall send them a strong delusion that they shall believe a lie” – 2 Thessalonians 2:9-11 (KJV). Satan, has already set the stage for deception – he teaches today the lie of the immortal soul. “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:…” -Genesis 3:4 (KJV).
