The Dangers of AI?

The Dangers of AI?
The Dangers of AI? By: Mike Sonneveldt Google Gemini AI goes woke Last week, we watched Google scramble to play cover on a story that blew up the internet. Users of Google's AI Gemini flooded X.com (formerly known as Twitter) with images of female, Asian founder fathers, black Greek soldiers, and even a stoic black George Washington. Most of the posts on X.com mocked Google's AI project and pointed out the obvious bias flowing from the program. However, it begged the larger question: can artificial intelligence be used in a productive, free-market way without bringing destruction in a Terminator-esque fashion? In an email to staff, which leaked to Bloomberg, Alphabet's Sundar Pichai used the words "completely unacceptable" when referring to the latest debacle. He said in … read more

America's Great Awakening: Yesterday and Today

Author: Andrew Alleman
What was the Great Awakening and how does it relate to today? The Great Awakening was a series of events taking place almost three hundred years ago in which revival broke out all over North America. These revivals served as providential, Spirit-led drivers that activated God’s purpose in Christians as America’s founders. More so, they ignited and advanced the biblical-social foundations that birthed the American Revolution and our nation. The love of Christ brought forward this light and revelation, acting as a catalyst for the free-flow of information and opinion across all denominations. This was a critical time in the 18th century not only in the beginnings of American history but also in world history as a whole. Key participants of the First Great Awakening in the 18th… read more
