Default Cold Grace Cybersky

Concerning automation, are we altogether profited for it? Thinking, some things a little better, but some things drastically not, even sick.

It would have been a time long ago when the old-folks would attempt to warn the rest of us of the dangers of electronic devises, much-much less, artificial intelligence. Neither the scoffer nor alarmist have disappeared.
With the otherwise harmless sounding,

delivery-robots to
robot-pets,
servants,
soldiers,
nurses taking some presence and
buddy-robots for elderly and the kiddos,

I’m beginning to wonder how long before the question comes up; should there be robot-preachers to council or lead a worship service? I believe a number of countries are allowing the subjecting of intimate companionship robots upon their public.

Our once familiar quip of ‘What’s next?’, now might well have sub-consciously evaporated under the proper heat over abominable trait-ramifications of all un-ethical scientific-curiosity. However much of an impact the Church is granted by God, should the common forms of conviction from God be expected any different under these “common to man” temptations?

Personally, I think I’m un-moved and reduced to the Lord’s admonition concerning all the transformations the world have hit us with. The heart itself being capable of committing the act without being physically involved, just as with the ‘lust-of-the-eye’ upon the subject of uncontrolled passion over a living individual, down to the 2-dimensional pornographic images to sustain that same lust, is now about to try and convince the rest of us those ills are now past and here is ‘the perfect substitute’; walking, talking 3-dimensional pornography.
You know that when you were pagans, you were influenced and led astray to mute idols.
(1 Corinthians 12:2)
So what if the OP alias - Grace Cybersky, aka, companion-robot is a different idol, it can still lead astray?!? Fast-forward to present-day, maybe something to keep in mind on how do we inform an acquaintance or friend whom has decided to buy an artificial means of heartfelt and intimate companionship?

Today's Robot Buddy

Isn't this just great? Thoughts entirely welcome. Thanks for looking (enduring).

We are to be a community, to be a neighbor, to love one another. Forming "friendships" with robots over humans is basically loving dead things.

Could a person be excused for forming a friendship with a robot if all of their attempts to form human friendships had been rejected?

While in anticipation of Soulheart’s reply, appeal space for my ‘two-cents’.

In all the freedoms that are available to Christians, the best form for those attempting to justify temptation ends at 1 Corinthians 10:23,

“, , not all things edify.”

2 Timothy 2:3 - ‘Take your share in the enduring of hardness. Take up my mantle. I say not—go and brave hard fighting in the trench, hard words, hard deeds, for Christ your Master. I rather say—being such an one as Paul the aged—come with me, come after me, be one with us all who war the good warfare.' - Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges

I dont like to answer what if questions, without details. Life is not A+B=C, in many situations, imaginary friends would often be better than robots. How do you know they tried very hard to make friends, being afraid to try very hard, life can be difficult, but you cant shut out the world and still be a part of the human race. So you would prefer a robot nanny over raising a child yourself, regardless of the lack of a real life bond?

My first question about these Robots is.

Where were they developed and why, what is wrong with a Society that feels the need to develop such a Robot Friend?

Not everybody is well adjusted and emotionally all together. Humanity is ill and we all have or have had things that leave us a little short of well adjusted or emotionally all together.

God doesn't give everybody the Holy Spirit. Not everybody hears the voice of the Shepherd.

Some falling a little short may find appealing a soothing voice of a robot. Or whatever ummm benefits a robot could offer.
Did youz actually read what the robot offers?
Can you think of avenues where somebody could get similar benefits?
I have to wonder if the Holy Spirit had given leading to the site to redirect here.

I don't think they feel a need to be excused by anybody. People use them and more people than we might imagine.
They are actually manufactured for consumers.
The market is there despite opinions that could be given.

If we fail as a community, as a neighbour, do we blame the person we rejected for seeking an alternative?

Of course not, but WE did not reject them. Dont assume the worst in others because of your own lacking. In the case you speak of, the child would have to be of well to do parents who could even afford a robot. And you also assume the parents arent a friend to said child, but feel guilty enough to buy the child something to make up for their own lacking. And then assume the child is not allowed to go outside where other children are to try and make friends, a prisoner in their own home. As well not allowed to go to a school with other children to make friends. In that situation, a robot would probably be a good thing. Thats just one example, but to say it would be okay in any situation is just foolishness.
