What Has God Wrought?

Artificial Intelligence and Our Brave New World

Christ Over All is a fellowship of pastor-theologians dedicated to helping the church see Christ as Lord and everything else under his feet.

1440. 1844. 1991. 2022. These years mark technological developments so seismic that they forever changed history: the movable type printing press, the telegraph that declared “What Hath God Wrought?,” the introduction of the internet, and now user-friendly artificial intelligence. On November 30, 2022, ChatGPT went live, and in just a short time this AI chatbot had over 100 millions users. But where did this technology come from, what will it do to our perception of what is true, good, and beautiful? How will it affect our very humanity, as well as our view of deity? Truly—what has God wrought? This month we take a critical look at this world-transforming invention and how Christians should think about its place in God’s World.

Crossway Publishers is graciously providing a free pdf copy of The Final Days of Jesus to readers of Christ Over All for the month of April.

The Podcast

Jesus Christ reigns over all things, and this podcast exists to help people see the reality and ramifications of this truth. We post at least four times a month: Twice, we will read aloud a longform essay from our monthly theme. And twice, we will discuss each essay with its author and another Christian leader. Listen in to live in light of Christ’s Lordship.

Upcoming Themes

In keeping with our vision to edify the church with evergreen content, our website is organized around monthly themes. These themes may focus on the Bible, theology, church, or culture. Over the course of the year we cover all these vital areas. There is a place for real-time responsiveness to cultural and evangelical controversy, but monthly themes do not focus on that priority. Rather, we plan our themes months in advance, curating a stable of writers with tailored assignments. Our hope is to foster mature and biblically-grounded reflection. To that end, with acknowledgement that all we plan is subject to God’s will, here are Christ Over All’s upcoming themes.
