Faith Under Fire – Artificial Intelligence – James Spencer – 06/08/23

Christians & Artificial Intelligence

Today on “Faith Under Fire”: We’ll hear more from James Spencer about the role Christians can play in the development of new technologies. 

Author James Spencer says Artificial Intelligence may increase efficiency, but it can’t replace our God-given desire to work.

Spencer, president of the D.L. Moody Institute, says Christians need to put AI in its proper place, and we have the unique opportunity to do that from a Biblical perspective.

“Faith Under Fire” airs most Thursdays on the radio (and online) during the Noon Report, and segments are included in other newscasts during the day. These conversations are also archived on for you to hear, subscribe or download.

Real Answers – “Procrastination” – 06/07/23

Procrastination … not just “getting around to it” … getting through it

The reasons we procrastinate are numerous, but Christian counselor Christopher Anderson says our self-doubt often keeps us from making forward progress.

Any time a person feels over-scheduled or over-stressed, it’s easy to get bogged down. The tasks might be boring or less important or unstructured. We also might need to develop a better system of rewarding or affirming yourself.

Anderson, a New-York-based Christian counselor, says we can push through our procrastination, by accomplishing one thing, rather than letting a decision-making process leave you spinning your wheels. Each item you can check off your list helps you to get ahead of future to-do lists.

Anderson also says, if you are procrastinating on “getting around to” Bible reading and personal devotional time, that could be why you feel out of balance or anxious. He offers advice — including perspectives from his own life — on how and when to make time with the Lord be fruitful and beneficial.
