When a priest writes a sermon, they’re taking inspiration from all these existing works anyway. It’s rare they offer something totally unique. But that’s not what people are there for.

People don’t go to church to just have a sermon be communicated to them. Otherwise they would just read the sermon on a big teleprompter. The point is going there and listening to another human offer insight, whether they thought of it themselves or read an old sermon from long ago.

If pastors can actually communicate better with AI, then that could actually improve a lot of things and allow people to get more out of it.

People that want a TV pastor already have that. The people who want an experience with other people are going to continue wanting that.

That seems to be a common refrain from a lot of workers, they are not wrong and this is just the start.

Yes. All that'll remain is manual work. We'll go back to a back breaking world for a little while

This is one step away from someone somewhere believing that what they hear from an AI is the direct word of God.

Someone's going to build a religion around AIs soon.
