For the purposes of this article, I will post parts which I consider a ‘big red flag’ for Christians (really for anyone) in RED. Also, my own comments will be Red and Indented:
From christianpost.com written in December 2022
****Shall we rename Musk? Perhaps ELON ‘NIMROD’ MUSK might be appropriate?
Did we think about Elon Musk more in 2022 than we did a year ago?
That thought might seem inconceivable, considering that just 12 months after he was named Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2021, Musk has become even more of a global presence.
Now that doesn’t mean life has been perfect for the world’s richest man: while he’s recently dominated headlines for his turbulent Twitter takeover, his other ventures have not gone unscathed.
While still the darling of the EV industry, Tesla has lost nearly half its market value since Musk first made his bid for Twitter, potentially threatening his status as the wealthiest man on Earth; SpaceX remains on course to shatter Musk’s goal of 60 launches in 2022, even as some SpaceX employees accuse Musk of violating labor laws; Starlink is well on its way to becoming the world’s largest satellite-based consumer internet provider amid mounting frustration from customers; and Musk’s tunneling venture, The Boring Company is reportedly losing engineers and staff despite making progress toward building underground transport systems in several U.S. cities.
But despite that resume, it’s Neuralink, Musk’s medical device company, that has perhaps aroused the greatest interest — and suspicion — from both Christian and secular ethicists alike.
*****As it should arouse ‘suspicion’ from Christians!
In 2019, Neuralink used “sewing machine-like technology … to drill small holes into brains and insert super-slender electrodes called threads, steering clear of blood vessels as they go.”
****Oh YES……be sure to stay clear of those pesky Blood Vessels!
Neuralink was reportedly designing its electrodes to not only “read” from neural activity but “write” signals into the brain, amid scientists stating goals of restoring senses like touch or vision.
*****HOLD IT RIGHT THERE!! Write signals into the brain?? My ‘suspicion’ is if a Leftist Globalist was to write those signals (commands) into the brain, then we very well might have problems. Ya think?
At that time, Musk said that the technology was placed inside a monkey’s brain and that the animal was able to control a computer through its thoughts. He aspired to have it implanted in a human being by the end of 2019.
That goal was ultimately revised earlier this month, when Musk announced he expects Neuralink to successfully develop a wireless brain chip and begin human clinical trials on such a device by mid-2023.
*****Yes. This is definitely on schedule
It marked the latest timeline revision for Musk, who has said the brain interfaces could enable disabled users to move and communicate, while also restoring vision — evoking almost biblical imagery of Jesus healing the lame and bringing sight to the blind.
******Take another look at the photo of Musk at the beginning of this article. I think that this man has what one might call a “messiah complex.”
While some Christian neurologists have spoken out on ethical questions raised by implanting devices into the human brain, Musk has said the reason he created the company in the first place was as a “risk mitigation for digital super-intelligence.”
Don’t forget, brethren, that Musk said that the reason he wanted to buy Twitter was to uphold freedom of speech. In the last few weeks, he announced that he was bringing on an official of the World Economic Forum (WEF) to be Twitter’s new CEO. Boy oy boy, that rascal is a slippery snake if I’ve ever seen one!!
“The reason I created Neuralink long-term as a risk mitigation for digital super-intelligence, in that if we are able to effectively achieve symbiosis with digital intelligence, then…the collective human will is better able to steer things in the direction that we’d like, or even with benign AI, at least go along for the ride,” he told The Babylon Bee in an interview last year.
“We’re already at this point partially a cyborg … in that our phones and computers and applications are a digital extension of ourselves at this point.”
Among other goals, Musk said he’s confident Neuralink will ultimately allow paraplegic or even tetraplegic to operate a phone “faster than someone who has … working hands.”
While undeniable lofty goals can hardly be described as nefarious, some have speculated about whether Musk has an ultimate agenda, one that perhaps stems from what at least one Christian thinker has described as a worldview that veers toward “atheistic transhumanism.”
But what exactly does that mean?
*****YES……what exactly DOES that mean??
The Rev. Christopher Benek, a Presbyterian pastor in South Florida and the founding chair of the Christian Transhumanist Association, believes the transhumanism movement — which he describes as a “complex web of philosophies, theologies and practical technological developments” — will ultimately become an “inevitable part of human reality.”
*****A Christian Transhumanist Association? Seems like the Oxymoron of Oxymorons!
Benek’s personal aspiration for humanity is to “enact a Christian transhumanism that merges technological development with the teachings of Christ.
“The question is: to which transhumanist worldview will the bulk of humanity adhere?” Benek told The Christian Post.
For Benek, the transhumanism movement based on biblical theology shouldn’t pose any conflict.
*****OH…..NO conflict at all!!! < eyes rolling >
“Most Christians should be fine with the proposed Neuralink developments as healing is at the core of the Christian tradition,” he said.
*****Benek would not know a Christian if he fell on one, since he himself is NOT ONE! He cannot speak for us!

Brothers and sisters in Christ – pray for discernment from God. Jesus warned us to not be deceived! I was almost deceived by Musk on Twitter, but then my eyes were opened by the Lord.
Bless His Holy Name!
COME LORD JESUS!
