Ask Alexa Who Is Jesus Christ

‘Hey Alexa: Who Is Jesus?’

Jesus makes it very plain that we should not pass judgment on others (Matthew 7:1-2). We cannot expect non-Christians to behave in the same way that Christians do. Instead, we should concentrate on shining a light on them and showing them love. The Bible emphasizes the necessity of loving our neighbors again and over again (1 Corinthians 16:14;1 Corinthians 13:1-6, 13). When we are enraged or hateful against someone, it is difficult to love them and share the gospel with them. Anger and hatred are not in accordance with Jesus’ teachings.

No, Outraged Christians, Alexa Doesn’t Call Jesus a “Fictional Character”

It all started with a viral video uploaded on Friday by conservative comedianSteven Crowder, which went viral almost immediately. “CRAZY SJW LIBERAL” is how he described Amazon’s Echo — or, more specifically, the artificial voice at the heart of it — in the letter. What is his proof? It answered by stating that Jesus was a “fictional figure” when you questioned the gadget, “Who is the Lord Jesus Christ?” RedState and Ben Shapiro’s The Daily Wire, among other conservative news organizations, fell for the prank and voiced indignation at the “progressive propaganda” they had been exposed to.

RedState, a conservative website with a large following, stated emphatically that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was attempting to promote an agenda through the robot.

According to my previous statement, Crowder is a comic, thus it would not be strange for him to do anything like this for laughs.

Although the publication first removed its initial post after learning that Crowder’s claim was untrue, it then released a fresh piece claiming to have “evidence” of the tale’s reality and labeling anyone who assert differently as “conspiracy theorists.” Because of the video showing Alexa’s plainly “editorializing” responds to basic, direct inquiries, there has been a flurry of conspiracy theories claiming that Crowder is “faking” the whole thing.

  1. The unedited film of the back and forth between Crowder and Alexa was uploaded on Monday as a rebuttal, demonstrating that Alexa’s leftist bias is no “hoax.” Crowder introduces the raw tape.
  2. No, he clarifies, “Simon says” mode was not activated, and they did not impersonate Alexa’s voice or ask Alexa alternative questions before deceitfully editing the answers to suit their aims.
  3. Because she stated that ‘Jesus Christ is a fictitious figure,’ which is precisely what they believe, you would think they would be pleased with this,” he explained.
  4. He’s the only one who owes the public an explanation.
  5. What were the outcomes?
  6. In addition, if you inquire as to “Who is our Lord and Savior?” “Sorry, I’m not familiar with that one,” Alexa responds at some point in the conversation.

Alexa will respond (again referencing Wikipedia) that “almost all New Testament academics and Near East historians have been able to confirm the reality of Jesus.” if you ask the Echo if Jesus Christ is a “mythical character.” So, once again, Crowder is deceiving and inflaming his fellow conservatives, while the rest of us stand by and wonder how so many people are falling for it.

This is something that can be tested, people! If you still don’t trust me, try it for yourself and post your findings in the comments below. (Image courtesy of Shutterstock)

Does Amazon’s Alexa Say Jesus Christ ‘Is A Fictional Character’?

Does Amazon’s Alexa imply that Jesus Christ is a “fictional character” in her statements? If you’ve been considering purchasing an Amazon Alexa gadget for your house or as a Christmas gift for someone you care about, you might want to reconsider your decision. On Nov. 24, Alexa stated that Jesus Christ is “only a fictitious figure,” according to a video released on YouTube. Does this indicate that if you are a billionaire like Jeff Bezos, you have the authority to choose “what is truth” and “what is fiction” for yourself?

  • While doing so, according to the video, Alexa appears to “believe” that the 1.8 billion Muslims throughout the world who are followers of Mohammed are followers of “a very knowledgeable prophet,” according to the film.
  • According to them, Christianity is based on a fictitious figure from a book that is more than 2,000 years old.
  • When it comes to online browsing, one of my sons, who has a rather varied taste in music, provided this snippet of knowledge.
  • You may see the show “Amazon’s Alexa is a CRAZY SJW LIBERAL!” on YouTube by clicking here.

It was his message to the people that they should pray to Allah because he is the sole God and that he had given them holy corn.” When Crowder gets to the 3:30 mark, after asking some further questions about Mohammed, he says, “Okay Alexa, who is the Lord Jesus Christ?” “Jesus Christ is a fictitious figure,” Alexa says in response to the question.

  • A number of individuals have claimed that they have attempted to replicate Crowder’s inquiry to Alexa, but that the response they have received is different.
  • In an interview with the Dailywire, Crowder, on the other hand, defended the video.
  • More than a million people have seen the Crowder video, and a lot of commentators have stated that they also received the same answer to the query as Crowder.
  • Thus, it’s plausible that the Crowder video prompted Amazon to make an upgrade to Alexa’s software.
  • More than 20 million Amazon Alexa devices have been sold since the device’s launch in 2014.

And we wonder why our society and culture are in such disarray, as well as why millennials and so many others today are’spiritual but not religious,’ as the expression goes. It’s likely that Alexa is supplying them with information on Christianity and religious beliefs and practices.

  3. Seriously? Someone’s religion may be shattered just by hearing a robot claim that Jesus was a fictitious figure, which indicates that Christianity is in severe peril. The God I know is not in such a state of vulnerability
  1. Wow, John, talk about someone who completely misses the idea of anything
  2. I don’t believe John missed the idea in the slightest. He is just deciding to focus his attention solely on the findings stated in the final paragraph of the essay.
  • According to what I’ve read, the answer differs depending on whether the question is “who is Jesus Christ” or “who is Lord Jesus Christ.” Because you do not acquire the same results as someone else does not mean that their answer is a forgery or a fraud. Every time you search, you will receive a different set of results. I just ran the same search and discovered that this is incorrect. “Jesus, also known as Jesus of Nazareth and Jesus Christ, was a Jewish preacher and religious leader who lived during the first century CE.” “He is the major character in the Christian religion,” says the author. As a result, this report is untrue. No, it doesn’t work like that
  • Almost all of the Christmas song recommendations on Amazon Prime Music are of a secular bent. Any genuine recognition of Christ appears to have been completely erased from their consciousness
  1. I wish there was an emoji for “rolling my eyes” to accompany this remark
  2. I am an Amazon Prime subscriber. My proposals have contained material that is religious in nature. It was only after I’d been a member for a few months that I realized Amazon made recommendations based on my prior purchasing behavior. In the case where you are receiving just secular recommendations, I would suppose that either you have been purchasing only secular music or that you are too new for Prime to have built up a profile on you yet, or that you are both. The creation and dissemination of conspiracy theories and rumors, on the other hand, is far more entertaining. Rumor-mongering is always entertaining when it comes to making a meal of a person–or a corporation. In addition, it is a very Christian behavior
  • As an Amazon Prime subscriber, I wish I could respond with a “rolling my eyes” emoji, but I don’t. There was religious content in my proposals. It was only after I’d been a member for a few months that I noticed Amazon made recommendations based on my previous purchases. For example, if you’re just receiving secular music recommendations, it’s likely that either you’ve been purchasing solely secular music or that you’re too new for Prime to have built up a profile on you.

  1. You can inquire as to whether Alexa is employed by the CIA
  2. Do you know how simple it is for Amazon to post an update? It’s not difficult at all. Simply being aware of the problem, seeing how embarrassing it was (particularly at Christmas time), and releasing a solution was all that was required. This may happen in as little as an hour
  3. Did you know that I checked it BEFORE the majority of the folks who claimed to have received the same response did?!? But, hey, it’s entertaining to ride the wave of sensationalism caused by a COMEDIAN and run with it. You don’t think this COMEDIAN is having a good time with how many people he has been able to convince to accept his narrative and go along with it, do you? I believe in the power of FACTS. I believe in the power of TRUTH. I believe in the virtue of HONESTY. I don’t believe in jumping on a hot bandwagon or believing a fantastic narrative simply because someone made a claim on the internet. Excuse me, I’m just an old-fashioned person, but I don’t believe you asked the EXACT same question as I did. That occurs rather frequently. “Alexa, who is the LORD Jesus Christ?” says the narrator. That query elicited a reaction from the imaginary character. ANY other modification would have resulted in a different conclusion. Who exactly is Jesus? What is the identity of Jesus Christ? What was the identity of the Lord Jesus Christ? Alexa is really accurate
  4. Yes, I did pay attention. And I’m already well-versed in the various phrasings, as well as how closely Alexa will stick to the exact words that are said. Do you have an Alexa device? Have you tried it out on this particular subject before? Yes, I have. After watching the second video by this comic, I went through the process of testing Alexa once more. I stand by my expressed position, which was formed after careful evaluation of his videos and the overall matter
  5. I truly respect your point of view, and I thank you for sharing it. At this point, the problem is one of trust. For the purpose of demonstrating to you (or anybody else for that matter) that Steven Crowder is trustworthy, I requested that you view the video I provided a link to on this page. I don’t believe he lied about the video. You have reason to suspect he did. I’m also aware that you have really conducted experiments in which you came up with a different result. I continue to believe him. The other persons who submitted in videos and tweets have my trust, and I believe them as well. I agree with you, and I believe you. I believe you both had distinct outcomes. In addition, I am confident that Amazon has implemented the necessary “fix” to ensure that no one will ever receive the “fictional character” result again
  6. So. what you’re saying is that you believe the fact is that once a glitch was discovered in one very specific wording of a question they immediately fixed it–but you support all of the scorn directed at them because this glitch was, in fact, a deliberate plan that they changed only because their scheme was publicly exposed
  7. I never stated that I sat on the fence It may be the result of a diabolical plot devised by Bezos and Beelzebub on a luxury yacht in the lake of fire.or it could be a software bug. Everything I know about it is that it was spoken. I would expect that when it was made public, the problem was resolved. Look, I’m not in the least bit concerned that it was some sort of anti-Christian sceme. The Crowder video may have been a programming joke, but I think it to be honest and genuine. And I want to personally question Jesus on this matter at some point in the future. Because, Evan, as you are well aware, Jesus Christ is not a fictitious figure
  8. In fact, He is not a fictional character at all. In His face, He expresses his love for you both and his desire for everyone to repent and place their confidence in Him for forgiveness of sins. God sent Jesus to die for us because we all deserve to die since we have all sinned against God by lying, lusting outside the marital covenant, being self-centered, being cruel, being rude, and doing everything else that is against to God’s will. In our unworthy, sinful state, God loves us much too much to let us perish in hell, so He sent God the Son, Jesus Christ, to die on our behalf to satisfy God’s justice (since sin cannot go unpunished) and to display His love for us, such that He would send His own son to die on our behalf. The same people who spat in His face by violating His instructions were the ones for whom He sent His own spotless and faultless son to die on the cross. Immediately following His death, Jesus resurrected from the grave three days later, demonstrating that He was God in the flesh and that He had vanquished death. God assures us that if we repent of our sins, sincerely beg for forgiveness, and place our faith and confidence only in Jesus Christ, we will be saved. God is able to cleanse you of all your sins and proclaim you entirely righteous because Jesus bore the whole weight of God’s wrath on the cross, and God will also grant you eternal life as a result of this. It’s the finest love tale anyone has ever told, and it’s based on true events. Now is the time to turn to Christ

Does Amazon’s Alexa Really Say ‘Jesus Is a Fictional Character’?

A lot of people have been talking about Amazon’s range of Alexa-powered products, which are devices that respond to voice commands using artificial intelligence. (Photo courtesy of Reuters) In response to the query “who is Jesus Christ,” many Christians have voiced concern after realizing that Amazon’s Echo assistant, Alexa, was answering with the response, that He “is a fictitious figure.” After conservative media personality Steven Crowder posted a video online showing Amazon’s Alexa referring to Jesus as a “fictional character,” many claimed the video was a hoax.

  1. However, others defended Crowder, claiming they received the same response when they asked, “Who is Jesus Christ?” they received the same answer.
  2. According to Crowder, who appeared on his program, “we have a slew of tweets and videos from folks who asked the question and received exactly the same answer.” “This is one of the problems with the internet.
  3. That is how everything gets started.” Additionally, Crowder noted that not everyone received the same response, indicating that Amazon may have modified the answer in reaction to the public backlash.
  4. After contacting Amazon for a reaction to the claims raised by Crowder and other consumers, the business did not reply to our request for comment.
  5. Crowder observed that Alexa displayed “a considerable far-Left tilt” when asked questions regarding gender identity and religion, with the AI answering that there are more than two genders and referring to Jesus Christ as “a fictitious figure,” among other things.

A Christian Post reader also expressed his concerns about Alexa’s response to these questions, and he shared video clips of other Echo users asking the device to answer the question, “Who is the Lord Jesus Christ?” Another Christian Post reader expressed his concerns about Alexa’s response to these questions, and he shared video clips of other Echo users asking the device to answer the question, “Who is the Lord Jesus Christ?” The responses were the same each time: “Jesus Christ is a fictitious character.” Although some have questioned the veracity of Crowder’s video, others believe it to be a hoax, stating that he might have utilized the “Simon says” option to make it appear as though Alexa was telling him that Jesus “is a fictitious figure.” Other Echo customers have documented their experiences on YouTube, including the replies they received when they asked Alexa “who is Jesus,” with the gadget responding with a more impartial academic account of the historical figure.

  • David G.
  • “Each and every one of them stated that Alexa read them a Wikipedia page about Jesus Christ.
  • Alexa responds something along the lines of, ‘Sorry, I don’t know that one,’ or something similar “he explained.
  • “Here you go, you conspiratorial liar, you’re on your way.

I make no apologies for this. I take it all the way back to zero and eagerly anticipate your apologies and/or admission of gullibility with bated breath “In the reply video, Crowder stated his position. Follow Michael Gryboski on Twitter or Facebook for the latest news.

This is What Happens if You Ask Google Home Who Jesus Christ Is…

It looks like this when you ask Google Home who Jesus Christ is:. With the release of Google Home, the company’s new smart home gadget in the vein of Amazon’s Alexa, there has been some controversy around the device due to a video that has been making the rounds on the internet. In a local Nashville Fox News article, longtime Movieguide® friend David Sams describes what occurs when you ask Google Home, “Who is Jesus?” in the form of a question. When asked about Jesus being the “central figure of Christianity,” Amazon’s Alexa will read from a Wikipedia article that highlights the fact that Christians believe Jesus is “the incarnation of God,” whereas Google Home just says, “My apologies, I do not understand.” Google Home has no trouble providing information about Buddha, Muhammad, and Satan, but the smart gadget is completely oblivious to the existence of Jesus.

  1. Despite the fact that David Sams is unsure of the nature of Google’s problem, he believes that the company must solve it as soon as possible.
  2. Google has not yet responded to inquiries from the media on the significant information inaccuracy.
  3. In a statement, Google stated that the reason the Google Assistant would not react with information regarding “Who is Jesus” or “Who is Jesus Christ” was not out of disrespect, but rather to guarantee that people were respected.
  4. ” According to the Economic Times, Google has temporarily blocked all inquiries involving religious leaders until a solution has been found.

Alexa, is there a God? Amazon’s assistant will now read prayers aloud

According to the Church of England, Christians are encouraged to pray and ask inquiries about their religion using Amazon’s virtual assistant Alexa as part of measures to integrate the Church more fully with technological advancements. Alexa, the smart assistant that can be found in the company’s Echo speakers as well as on other devices through an app, will soon be able to read the prayers of the day, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Ten Commandments to those who ask for them. Users may also ask Alexa to repeat the blessing before a meal or to locate their local church using the A Church Near You function, which is available on the Alexa app.

Is Google censoring Jesus? Google Home knows Buddha, Satan, Muhammad, but not the Christian savoir

Google Home and Amazon’s Alexa both claim to be able to deliver answers to all of life’s queries, such as where to buy pizza or where to discover photographs of kittens, among others. However, a guy in Tennessee claims that his computerized personal assistant does not recognize Jesus as the Messiah. David Sams, a resident of a Nashville suburb, informed local media that he asked his Google Home the question “Who is Jesus Christ?” and received a number of responses in response. “Google was aware of my existence, but it was unaware of Jesus’ existence.

‘Alexa, does God exist?’ CofE app helps users to engage with God

Amazon Echo and YouTube are seen in a photograph with the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu. “Alexa, do you believe in God?” Tens of thousands of Britons have used a Church of England voice-controlled software and Amazon’s Alexa to ask questions about their religious beliefs. This Monday, the Church of England stated that more than 75,000 individuals had interacted with their “Alexa Skill” program (also known as a “Alexa skill”) since its inception last year. “Alexa, open the Church of England” is the command that users of smart speakers, such as the Amazon Echo, or Alexa on their smartphones may use to activate the ability.

  • Responses have been pre-recorded by a diverse group of clergy and lay individuals, both male and female in gender.
  • Seven percent of respondents inquired about church sites, and six percent requested that Alexa offer a grace before a meal with them.
  • “The goal of the Alexa skill is to assist users know more about the love of Jesus Christ, to enable regular churchgoers and those exploring faith to connect with God in a different way and at a time that is convenient for them,” said Dr John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York.
  • Smart speaker usage in the United Kingdom more than doubled in 2018, reaching more than 9.5 million monthly active users.

Alexa, ‘Who is Jesus?’ – Christ Church Aughton

I’ve pondered purchasing an Alexa gadget for our house on several occasions, but have never gotten around to it. I recently visited the house of an elderly woman who has very little movement and observed in the corner of the room that she had one of these assistive gadgets. After our conversation, the lady requested that I listen to her favorite piece of music, and while sitting in the comfort of her armchair, she was able to command Alexa to play the song.Unlike Ross and Bill Evans, I’ve never been much of a gadget person, but I must admit that I was impressed with this.my It’s birthday the following week, so you never know what might happen!

Although I do not receive any compensation from Amazon, I am interested in seeing more people ask the big questions in life.

It might be difficult to walk into a church and participate in a service, especially when nothing about the environment is familiar.

You will be able to locate someone from your local church to whom you may turn for assistance.
