What the Bible actually says about sex robots, (give or take a letter)
Mordecai had a 'cousin' named Hadassah, whom he had bought up because she had neither father nor mother. This young woman, who was also known as Esther, had a lovely figure and was beautiful.
It's the worst sin. Sex robot users anger God and will go to HELL, Christian preachers spout.
Sex robots are warped copies of real humans and sinners who use them will be condemned to hell, leading Christians have claimed.
One sex robot named Samantha, 'who likes to be touched' and has eight different modes, including romantic and family mode, is already on sale worldwide. And now a few Christians have been whingeing to the Daily Star about the morality of sex
Dr Richard Land, president of the Southern Evangelical Seminary, in North Carolina, US, said:
Sex with a non-human is rebelling against God. The widespread use of sex robots could have catastrophic consequences for human relationships.
Referring to a passage in Corinthians 6 in the Bible, Dr Land said perverting God's purpose for sex is the worst kind of sin. He said:
The Bible is very clear that god created sex to make two people one person. Any sexual relationship that violates that purpose for sex is rebelling against God. That would include sex with a non-human, for instance a robot.
Dr Christopher Benek, religious commentator and pastor in South Florida, US, said someone who has sex with a robot risks separation from God and being sent to hell. In traditional Christianity, it is a sin to commit idolatry...the worship of an
idol, icon or statue.
