Should Internet evangelism use automated programs to spread the gospel? - is the question Christianity Today raised in a current issue. As Internet technology and popularity have increased, the applications for Internet evangelism have as well. Scores of websites provide information on Jesus, run complex presentations of the Gospel, or show video testimonies. Ministries also use chatrooms and IM to offer prayer and talk about Christianity. Could new automatic technologies and artificially intelligent IM buddies like SmartChild be used in evangelism? It's possible. An anti-smoking bot named Virgil chats with kids about movies, music, and sports while giving lessons on why smoking is "stupid." But some say that is not the same as programming software to talk about Jesus. What do you think?
