Elon Musk Discusses Whether Humans are Really Here or Are We in a Computer Simulation?
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors and co-creator of Pay Pal, is speaking at the Code Conference and is asked the question, “Sort of a philosophic concept, that a sufficiently advanced civilization would be able to create a simulation… that’s like, our existence. So, the theory follows that maybe we’re in that simulation. Have you thought about this?” Elon responds first talking about the game “Pong” and how games have evolved. “Now 40 years later, we have photo realistic, 3-D simulation with millions of people playing simultaneously, and it’s getting better every year.” Musk continues to share, “If you assume any rate of improvement at all, then the games will become indistinguishable from reality…there is a one in billions chance that this is base reality…Either we’re going to create simulations that are indistinguishable from reality, or civilization will cease to exist.”
These are adults having this conversation and these very smart people think that we may be living in virtual reality! It is painful to have a relationship with people which is why people are turning to virtual life versus real life. We need to wake ourselves up today and live in real life because we don’t know when our last day on this earth will be. Our God is real and there is power in the Kingdom. As believers we need to move in God’s power; faith is moving in what we know. Let’s choose faith and power to advance God’s Kingdom! We want to hear from you.

Francis Chan; Has Generation Z Lost Connection with God?
Urbana is the largest student missions conference in the world. It is an intervarsity gathering where people of all ethnicities come together to worship the Lord and to discover their next step with God in their life. The pure gospel is spoken at Urbana and because of this young people that are ministered to leave filled with God and empowerment to move in the power of God.
Francis Chan speaks at Urbana and talks about what he would do differently if he could relive his life. “I would have had a greater focus on getting to unreached people…I would devote more of it to getting this Good News, this message, to people who have never heard about Jesus Christ…I feel… I’ve spent far too much time speaking to people who have already heard the Gospel thousands of times.” Francis talks about how easy it is to get caught up in this life and to try to make a name for ourselves and to forget about everyone who has not heard about Jesus. He is so serious about this that he stopped most of his speaking engagements, so he could devote more time to reaching the lost. “I don’t want to just entertain Christians.”
Be challenged by this message, to give your life to God and to reach the lost. You can join with VFN Kingdom Business and be a part in reaching the lost and those who have never heard of Jesus. Time is short, and we need to spend every moment we can to reach the lost. We can spend the rest of our days God has given us doing what He said, becoming a disciple of Jesus and making disciples. You can start discipleship on Emmaus Road and you can also partner with VFNKB to help reach those that need to be discipled. We must become busy and become a disciple of Jesus Christ. We want to hear from you! Also shared in this segment: evangelism, missions, Great Commission, discipleship, relationship, Church gatherings, fellowship, abiding, and eternity.
