I watched “Person of Interest” television show tonight. My husband likes action shows and sometimes I do. The premise of this episode is two artificial intelligences at war to rule the world.
Some of the circumstances remind me of end time prophecies. The evil computer will artificially stimulate events to appear benevolent. Then when everyone adjusts to the peace and prosperity the machine will throw everything into chaos so people will run to a savior.
That savior will be like the anti-Chtist and grab control of everyone except for those rebelling against him. Those in rebellion become enemies of the State and are embroiled in a life or death battle.
The only difference is that the one is lower case god and also a machine. As a viewer, I root for the good guys and the characters are complex. Sometimes a bad guy turns into an ally for a while.
In the real world, I’ve heard testimonies of Mafia members coming to a saving relationship with Christ. All of us were alienated from God before we found forgiveness of sin it tells us in the book of Ephesians. I love the book of Ephesians, it’s very encouraging. Chapter one tells of believers being sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.
God commits to loving us and giving us an inheritance in heaven.
