The case for an artificially intelligent God. A former engineer for Waymo, one of Google’s sister companies under Alphabet, recently filed paperwork to become the “CEO” of a religion based on the worship of an AI. He’s not the first person to suggest that technology can be spiritual, and it’s easy to dismiss it as silly or offensive. But his timing couldn’t be better. The religion in question, “Way of the Future,” is a veritable unknown — there aren’t any details to share or analyze. Anthony Levandowski, the gentleman responsible for it, didn’t exactly choose to alert the media to his plans. → By Tristan Greene from The Next Web (TNW)


Officials, Police in Tamil Nadu State, India Halt Worship in 10 Churches. Officials and police in Tamil Nadu state, India, have ordered 10 churches to discontinue worship services, sources said. Hindu extremists compelled state officials and police to issue orders to the churches in Coimbatore District to stop worship unless they obtain permission from the collector’s office, and the extremists intend to target 20 others in the same way, church leaders said. → By Morning Star News


Worship is not just singing.  Many have asked what is Worship? Who is a Worshipper? Worship is important not just because God is seeking Worshippers (and He is), but also because in Eternity, our Worship in Spirit continues while virtually everything else ceases. Worship is not just singing and making music, indeed our Worship (if true) must extend to the home, the Market Place even in our Politics. → By Olabode Ososami from Christian Post

Harvey Weinstein and Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards in 1999. (DAVE CAULKIN/ASSOCIATED PRESS)

Harvey Weinstein and the dark side of Hollywood’s talent-worship. “Circle the talent.” When times get tough — when a reporter or newbie or “civilian” dares to challenge the behavior of a Hollywood eminence — the impulse is to close ranks around who has more power, money, fame and, perhaps most crucially, talent. In an industry whose chief products are works of novelty and imagination, it’s creativity that’s prized and mythologized most highly: that ineffable, unquantifiable artistic gift that makes someone unique and seemingly indispensable to the entire enterprise. → By Ann Hornaday from Washington Post

Revelation 22: Seven principles for today’s church. The Bible begins in a garden and ends in a city. It begins with a terrible fall and ends with a glorious renewal. It begins with a curse and ends with the curse being reversed and all possibility of a curse being removed. It begins with humanity being shut out from the presence of God – it ends with an open invitation to all to come and drink from the river of the water of life. t’s a great ending. As we finish this series on Revelation let me remind you that this letter was written at a time when the church was under siege and things were looking grim. John sums up in this last chapter with some great principles that also apply to us today. Given that the whole book of Revelation is structured around the number seven, lets finish with seven principles → By David Robertson from Christian Today

The French Senate

© CHRISTOPHE ARCHAMBAULT / AFP | The French Senate.

The French parliament on Wednesday adopted a tough new anti-terrorism bill that gives authorities vastly expanded powers to search homes, restrict movement and close places of worship. The bill, which was passed by the Senate after modifications to address concerns about civil liberties, makes permanent some of the exceptional measures contained in the state of emergency imposed after the November 2015 Paris attacks. The emergency laws expire on November 1. The most punitive elements of the new bill will be reviewed annually by parliament and are scheduled to lapse at the end of 2020. →
