A new controversy has emerged surrounding an AI-generated fake Bible passage that claims Jesus accepts trans-identified individuals, saying that “there is no man nor woman.” Here’s the whole story.
A Fake Bible Passage “Jesus Accepting Trans People”
The controversy began when a Reddit user, requested ChatGPT to generate a “fake biblical passage” depicting “Jesus accepting trans people.”
The passage resulting from this request tells the story of a woman whose heart is divided between her spirit and her body, seeking guidance from Jesus about finding her place in the Kingdom of God.
The AI-generated passage read, “And a woman, whose heart was divided between spirit and body, came before him. In quiet despair, she asked, ‘Lord, I come to you estranged, for my spirit and body are not one. How shall I hope to enter the Kingdom of God?'”
“‘My Child, Blessed Are Those Who Strive for Unity Within Themselves, for They Shall Know the Deepest Truths of My Father’s Creation.’”
The passage continued, “Jesus looked upon her with kindness, replying, ‘My child, blessed are those who strive for unity within themselves, for they shall know the deepest truths of my Father’s creation.’”
“Be not afraid, for in the Kingdom of God, there is no man nor woman, as all are one in spirit. The gates of my Father’s Kingdom will open for those who love and are loved, for God looks not upon the body, but the heart,” it concluded.
The Reddit user wrote, “I know it’s not real, but it gave me some comfort.”
“Trans-Affirming” Bible Verse
The Pro-LGBT outlet, The Advocate, was among the first to report on this “trans-affirming” Bible verse.
They portrayed the passage as an example of tolerance and inclusivity, suggesting that it could serve as a bridge between the LGBTQ+ community and religious institutions historically excluding them.
However, as the post gained traction, many Christian scholars and columnists raised concerns about AI’s ability to replicate the intonation and style of the Gospel while potentially deviating from the original meaning.
“Not Jew or Gentile, Male or Female, Slave or Free. We Are All Equal in Jesus”
In an op-ed for the Christian Post, messianic Jewish author and radio host Michael Brown acknowledged that there is truth in the idea that there is neither male nor female in God’s kingdom.
However, he argued that this should not be misconstrued as a blurring of gender distinctions or an endorsement of transgender identities.
Brown wrote, “Instead, as expressed by Paul (see Galatians 3:28; Colossians 3:11), there is neither caste nor class in God’s Kingdom — not Jew or Gentile, male or female, slave or free. We are all equal in Jesus.”
Jesus Would Not Advocate for Drastic Physical Alterations, Such as Breast Removal and Hormone Therapy
He argued that Jesus would not advocate for drastic physical alterations, such as breast removal and hormone therapy, but instead would strive to make individuals “at home in the body they were created with.”
He compared the situation to Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID), suggesting that Jesus would not amputate a limb for someone struggling with such a disorder but would seek to heal them from within.
Brown also drew parallels to people who identify as “furries” and argued against transforming them into the animals they identify with.
“Anything Outside of the Natural Order Is a Sin”
Several social media users expressed their thoughts on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “Sad to see how you can’t grasp that this is the greatest medical scandal of all time and that these losers have betrayed themselves, the public, and the scientific principle.”
Another User wrote, “Nonetheless mankind was created as man and woman, for one another exclusively, filling two essential roles. Anything outside of the natural order is a sin.”
