Last week we tested the Artificial Intelligence-powered ChatGBT to see if it could generate a Lutheran sermon, with mostly unimpressive results. This week I wanted to drill down more to see how well it handles theology.
So here are the assignments, followed by the AI generated response. I’ll then discuss what it came up with. I invite you to join in. Also I invite you to play this game yourself, posing theological questions and tasks–these involve Lutheran theology but feel free to ask it about other traditions as well–and then report on how it did in the comments. You can access ChatGBT for free, though they’ll ask you to register, here.
