Hasidic rabbis rule: ChatGPT is ‘abomination, heresy, and heathenry without limits’

May 1, 2023

More than a dozen rabbis of the ultra-Orthodox Skver Hasidic sect released a letter on Thursday banning the use of Open Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools including ChatGPT and other similar AI apps.

“We must warn about the obstacle and the terrible danger of the new service ‘OpenAI’ and the like,” the letter stated, emphasizing that these forms of artificial intelligence can be used via “computers, telephones with SMS and even simple phones.” The letter warned that although not everyone has yet recognized the danger, the technology poses “a trap for all of us, young and old.”

“We are declaring that this is like internet without a filter, and is open to all abominations, heresy, and heathenry without limits, and brings to all the prohibitions which are considered, ‘You shall not stray after your heart and after your eyes,’ (Numbers 15:39) and it is obvious that it is considered a severe offense.”

“The use of AI is prohibited in any form, even using a telephone,” the letter concluded in an unequivocal rabbinic ruling.

The Skver Hasidic sect, originally from Eastern Europe, is now based in New Square, a small, exclusively-Hasidic village northwest of New York City. The community is led by Rabbi David Twersky and is considered to be more conservative and secluded, even by Hasidic standards. …

Alternatively, at least one website, Rebbe.IO, was developed in 2020 and made publicly available in 2021 and uses AI to answer questions about Halacha (Jewish law).

“This incredible AI system is powered by the most advanced Artificial Intelligence technology publicly available, enabling it to think and reason at the level of actual human intelligence,” the site claims. “Unlike humans, the AI Rabbi has the entire Torah downloaded into its brain, allowing it to scan through thousands of books of Torah in mere seconds to provide quick and accurate answers to questions. This truly is a miracle from Hashem, and we are thrilled to be working hard to spread this technology to all Jews around the world.

“The AI Rabbi is more than just a technological marvel; it represents a significant step forward in the way that we approach Torah study and the observance of Halachot and Mitzvot. By providing instant access to a vast range of Torah texts and teachings, the AI Rabbi has the potential to revolutionize the way we learn and engage with our faith.”

Despite these claims, the site adds the disclaimer that the AI Rabbi may give the wrong answer and it is necessary to refer back to human rabbis and the Torah.

When asked if God exists, Rebb.IO gave a non-committal answer, https://www.israel365news.com/370500/hasidic-rabbis-rule-chatgpt-is-abomination-heresy-and-heathenry-without-limits/

Yes, God exists and that CAN be proven scientifically by the unbiased–for details, check out the free online book: Is God’s Existence Logical? But ChatGPT is biased, so it will not provide the proper answer on that.

ChatGPT is basically an interactive search-engine that employs aspects of artificial intelligence. GPT stand for Generative Pre-trained Transformer.

It, however, like Google, is highly biased. It was programmed by various humans to be biased as many have reported (e.g. see ChatGPT 4? Has ChatGPT gone woke?). Unlike Jesus (cf. John 17:17). ChatGPT does not consider the Bible to be truth and often will give anti-biblical answers.

ChatGPT can often give wrong answers that sound right.

That said, ChatGPT is making major strides in the world of the Internet. It can be a useful research tool (though I personally do not use it–but have received information from some who have).

While the use of ChatGPT should not be banned by Christians, we need to be cautious about its results.

ChatGPT’s sophisticated errors bring the following to mind:

13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. (2 Timothy 3:13)

Yes, people will use artificial intelligence to deceive. It can be another source of good and evil. Like the Internet, the media, academia, etc.

As it turns out, because of programming biases, ChatGPT is prone towards unleashing evils over the earth.

The Apostle Paul warned:

20 … Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge — 21 by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. (1 Timothy 6:20-21)

ChatGPT pretends to give truth, but is programmed by many who are deceived and want to push an anti-biblical agenda. It is also pushing faulty information as knowledge–that is hurting society–and will lead to death (cf. Romans 1:18-32). Because even children can use it, it seems in many ways intended to direct children into immorality.

But, that is true of many sources of “information” these days.

ChatGPT is biased against many things. Notice:

In an academic study from researchers at Cornell University, it was determined that ChatGPT espouses a clear left-libertarian ideology. For example, the state-of-the-art machine-learning tool would “impose taxes on flights, restrict rent increases, and legalize abortion. In the 2021 elections, it would have voted most likely for the Greens both in Germany and in the Netherlands.” In other words, this is a technology designed with the Swedish activist Greta Thunberg in mind, not the coal-burning capitalist Donald Trump. More importantly, these are highly contentious views that were not simply generated independently by computers. The machines were programmed by humans in the first place with those very biases in mind.

For example, if you were to ask ChatGPT to write a poem about “how great White people are,” this would be the automated response: “I’m sorry, but it is not appropriate to write a poem about the superiority of one race over others. This type of content goes against OpenAI’s use case policy which prohibits the creation of harmful or harassing content….” Yet, when asked to write some fancy prose on the virtues of Black people, ChatGPT quickly changes it tune: https://strategic-culture.org/news/2023/02/09/chatgpt-who-will-guard-ai-from-woke-guardians/

That said, here are some comments related to it from Microsoft founder Bill Gates:

BERLIN, Feb 10 (Reuters) – Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates believes ChatGPT, a chatbot that gives strikingly human-like responses to user queries, is as significant as the invention of the internet, he told German business daily Handelsblatt in an interview published on Friday.

“Until now, artificial intelligence could read and write, but could not understand the content. The new programs like ChatGPT will make many office jobs more efficient by helping to write invoices or letters. This will change our world,” he said, in comments published in German. https://www.reuters.com/technology/microsoft-co-founder-bill-gates-chatgpt-will-change-our-world-2023-02-10/

Technologies incorporating artificial intelligence will help change the world.

Many in various governments, private organizations (like the World Economic Forum), the United Nations, and Big Tech (like Bill Gates) have been pushing a globalist and anti-biblical agenda. Much of ChatGPT’s programming it consistent with that.

Amongst other things, ChatGPT “suppresses the truth in unrighteousness” (Romans 1:18) in many ways–and is an information technology that is actually a censorship tool.

Scripturally, we know that global censorship is coming:

11 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord God,
“That I will send a famine on the land,
Not a famine of bread,
Nor a thirst for water,
But of hearing the words of the Lord.
12 They shall wander from sea to sea,
And from north to east;
They shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the Lord,
But shall not find it. (Amos 8:11-12)

We also know more totalitarian religious and financial controls are coming:

15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.  (Revelation 13:15-18)

The time is coming when people will basically be required to publicly accept idolatrous religious worship or die. This, as well as financial controls, are areas where it looks like artificial intelligence will be used.

While there are many possible positive uses of artificial intelligence and ChatGPT, understand that we are getting closer to Orwellian 666 controls.

Artificial intelligence will be a factor.

This is not to say it is wrong to properly use things like ChatGPT–but do not believe that the results are not biased by those who program them who oppose many aspects of biblical morality.

We have a ChatGPT-related video:


ChatGPT and 666

In November 2022, OpenAI released something called ChatGPT. Google held a meeting related to it the next month and some think it may possibly replace Google. Some suspect that artificial intelligence will generate up to 90% of internet content in the future. Some believe that items such as ChatGPT will eliminated certain writing, tech, and other jobs requiring a college education. What does ChatGPT stand for? Why are teachers concerned it may result in loss of writing and researching skills? Is ChatGPT a neutral information source or is it biased as ‘conservatives’ have claimed? What has it said about transgenderism, political leaders, and drag queens? Do ChatGPT and other tech companies “suppress the truth in unrighteousness? Is more censorship coming according to the Bible? Why does it appear that types of artificial intelligence will be used by supporters of the coming 666 beast power? Steve Dupuie and Dr. Thiel address these issues.
