Moloch, AI and The Grand Delusion Podcast

This is what I used for the podcast. It’s not word for word.

I listened to a two hour podcast today with two very smart people about the dangers of AI. Liv Boeree and Daniel Schmactenberger. She is a” poker champion, broadcaster, (YouTuber) and science educator on topics of game theory, physics, complexity, and life.” He is a philosopher who tries to make sense of the world. Both of them view life as game theory. They are very smart intellectually, but not believers, and they both ran into a wall when it came to trying to understand what is happening in the world, what is coming and what caused it. The Biblical explanation escapes them. They do not believe in the supernatural so they cannot make sense of evil. 

The funny thing is they call this metacrisis Moloch. So deep down they have some knowledge that evil forces are at work. But because both of them are super logical materialists, they cannot understand that the only way to ‘win, is not to play’. That is a line from an 80s movie called War Games and it is extremely relevant again now that AI has been unleashed upon us, thanks to Microsoft. Microsoft has invested a total of $1 billion in OpenAI. In 2014, Microsoft invested $500 million in OpenAI, and in 2019, Microsoft invested an additional $500 million. Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft, has personally invested $100 million in OpenAI. So although Schmactenberger said a lot of smart things as far as how the ‘world system’ operates, he is unable to view it through the lens of scripture which would quickly clear up his confusion. They both sound pretty terrified because they have rightly understood that there is a force that the world system is cooperating with, this force they call Moloch but don’t really understand. 

In other words, for anyone listening who is unfamiliar, there is an evil force that unrighteous humans are participating with to create this world system. The only solution is defect from the war. Quit playing the game. Stop pursuing profits at any cost, even your own soul, which is what Moloch requires.  Not physically, don’t kill yourself. But surrender your life and soul to God now and when the war is over, you will be on the winning side. I can only hope that these two people will come to that conclusion like many other smart people have when faced with the facts of good and evil. Currently they believe that they are on the right side, but that is an illusion. They are resisting, but they are still in the system. They need to leave the system. That means they repent and believe and are born again and from then on they serve God, not mammon. Moloch is the system that serves mammon, or money. It can never be righteous. 

The word Moloch (מולך) occurs eight times in the Masoretic text of the Hebrew Bible. Five of these are in Leviticus, with one in 1 Kings, one in 2 Kings and another in The Book of Jeremiah. Moloch was a pagan god. One of the ways Moloch was worshiped was by human sacrifice, often children. The people were deceived into believing that this was a way to ensure financial security for their future. The other important means of worship was through sexual acts. So they would have sex, get pregnant, then sacrifice the baby to Moloch. Obviously sex and child sacrifice have become much more normalized in the past 70 years since birth control and abortion became legal. More sacrifices, more evil. 

I believe that we are already living in continuous end times, the entropy of the world,  and that means that the great deception that many people think is going to come during the tribulation has already started and is ongoing and I believe that it started in the garden. So the deception of the serpent with Eve is getting worse and I think this happened around the 16th century from what I can tell something changed around that time. Unfortunately there are only so many hours in the day so I can’t study everything but it obviously got a lot worse after the Enlightenment when science began to become our new God. But while there was deception you know going all the way back to Eve it was in a different form.  people were worshiping actual Idols, physical statues and now people are worshiping money and health and different kinds of idols thanks to technology and prosperity . The more comfortable and secure people are, the easier they are to deceive because they begin to think they are in control of their lives. 

 I think that the description of the deception that you read about in 2nd Thessalonians 2 is already happening. 

This passage says 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it backr will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed,s whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his moutht and destroy by the splendor of his coming.u 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satanv works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wondersw that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing.x They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.y 11 For this reason God sends themz a powerful delusiona so that they will believe the lieb 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.c

I think that great delusion is ongoing and increasing, not only a future event. Matthew 24:22 says “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the electa those days will be shortened. 23 At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it.b 24 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wondersc to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 

Obviously many of us have been fooled already by fake news and not always known when someone was lying to us. But the final deception will most likely use AI and will cause people to think someone has come back from death and they will worship him. 

I think that these verses apply to a future tribulation period but also to the present times. The elect will not be deceived completely, but we will have times of doubt and confusion. Obviously people have been deceived thanks to the printing press and all forms of media.The invention of electricity, radio, television and now the internet made it much easier to create deceptions. We are at the point where we are now where we are about to tip into total deception and that is going to be because of AI which is what they were talking about in that video, what to do about this Tipping Point. I just thought it was really interesting that these two people don’t even believe in God and yet they’re able to see that this is coming so I think that God is giving people one last chance to turn to him before the deception becomes all complete. so if you’re listening to this I hope that you will repent  of your lack of faith and you will ask God to forgive you for  your sin of rejecting him when he has shown himself to us through his creation, through his word, through His prophets and through miracles of Jesus, because once AI is fully implemented people are not going to know the difference between reality and unreality and that will be when the Beast and the rest of the Book of Revelation will happen so I hope that makes sense .

The problem is that people have been taught that there is no such thing as the supernatural. Even people who say they believe in God sometimes say that they do not believe in evil. So there is a serious lack of spiritual knowledge. In some cases it is spiritual misinformation and people are believing in the wrong gods and conspiracy theories. There is no need to look for other gods when the Bible is very clear. Throw out those other theories! 

There is one God who made the world and we are living in a corrupt world where humans are losing a battle with evil. The Bible says that Satan is the prince of the power of the air. He is the great deceiver of mankind. He is Moloch, sometimes spelled Molech. He is the one who loves death, but he is not in charge of death. God is. The Bible says that God is going to judge this world, mainly because of Satan, but also because of the sins of the unrepentant. People who repent will not be judged, but this world is going to be destroyed. We cannot stop it with climate activism or science or social justice. The only way to survive is to be born again by faith in Jesus. So instead of fearing Moloch or AI, you can accept God’s free gift of grace and salvation before the great deception and the final judgment. Will you do that today?

  1. Of course, all the inventions you mention around the printing press, computers, etc., all have good aspects to them if used correctly and submitted to the “Brain” who enables our creativity to flourish. However, as noted before, EVERY human “solution” to a problem ALWAYS comes with unforeseen consequences and can be perverted into evil use.
