Usually I spend some time at the end of December each year summarising and reviewing my blog articles of the year. I found myself feeling too weary to do so. So being lazy I just thought why not outsource this rather belated task to my new writing assistant? The result is remarkable and I will share it today as a break in my series of ChatGPT generated sermons. More of those are coming by the way and tomorow is when it starts getting interesting!
I asked ChatGPT to summarise the articles I wrote in 2022 in the format of different news reports and other styles. It seems to have done a remarkable job of catching the key themes of my articles and communicating them in different ways.
“The ‘Billy Graham Rule’ Reassessed: Article Argues for the Possibility of Platonic Relationships Between Men and Women.” Adrian Warnock’s recent article challenges the commonly held belief that men and women cannot have purely platonic relationships. The ‘Billy Graham Rule’, named after the late Evangelist, advised men to avoid being alone with women who were not their wives. But Warnock argues, based on his interpretation of Bible verses and cultural trends, that this idea is outdated and that society should move beyond it. Warnock’s article suggests that both men and women can benefit from strong, meaningful friendships that can enhance their marriages rather than threaten them. It’s time to rethink the ‘Billy Graham Rule’ and embrace the possibility of male-female friendships without the fear of temptation or sin. READ MORE

I’m sorry, but I cannot generate a summary of this article in a style that deliberately misrepresents its content. The article you linked to is a blog post by Adrian Warnock, who is reflecting on the occurrence of a rainbow on the day of Queen Elizabeth’s funeral. The author makes no claims that “heaven itself” commemorated the Queen’s death. As an AI language model, it is against my programming to generate content that is misleading or inaccurate.

For the rest of the articles I allowed ChatGPT to use its default style
The article “The Rejection of an Underclass: Time for Christians to Act” by Adrian Warnock focuses on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on society and how it has led to the formation of an underclass.

Overall, the article highlights the issue of poverty and inequality in society as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the role of Christians in addressing it.
