In the world of artificial intelligence, many new and creative things have certainly been produced. Some are useful while others are a bit strange. One such recent creation that’s getting a lot of attention for being different is the Text With Jesus app.
Made for people who strongly believe in Christianity, the “Text With Jesus” app offers a way to talk with important biblical characters, including Jesus, Mary, Joseph, Peter, and Matthew.
When you use this app, you’ll notice its deep connection to spirituality. It asks you questions and gives you answers taken from the Bible’s detailed writings, reported the New York Post.
It is definitely quite a bold move in terms of options for interactions. While you need to pay to access all the characters and send unlimited messages, you can get the app for free on compatible devices.
One can explore in-depth conversations from the Bible, such as the story of Adam and Eve or the beginning of humanity, according to app details.
Talking with Satan, the most controversial feature
The app’s most talked-about feature is its ability to have conversations with Satan.
Satan, who’s usually seen as a symbol of tricks and lies, appears in a calm and surprising manner in this app. People might be expecting intense conversations or clever tricks, but they could end up confused.
Instead of spreading negativity, Satan in this app talks about positive things such as love, respect, and understanding—all things important in the Bible. For a modern twist, each interaction with Satan ends with a devilish smiley face emoji, reported the New York Post.
There is a new AI app that allows you to chat with Jesus and Satan.
The app is called "Text With Jesus" and has a rating of 4.3 stars on the Apple app store.

The app combines seriousness with a bit of attitude, and this will surely get responses from both people who like things the old way and those who love technology.
Now, it’s not clear if this mix is intentional to make people think differently or if it’s just something that wasn’t planned in the programming.
But what’s important to know is that you can’t talk to Satan unless you decide to. This feature is initially deactivated when you first get the app, and you have to choose to turn it on if you want to chat with Satan.
The app makes it clear that the manner in which Satan is shown is based on Christian teachings. It’s also up to app users how they want to interact with characters in the app, as per the New York Post.
‘A tool for exploration, education, and engagement’
On their website, the creators of the app reveal that it is meant for learning, discovering, and getting involved in stories of the Bible. It’s not supposed to take the place of real conversations with spiritual beings, which is a very personal part of one’s faith.
They also want to clarify that the app doesn’t really give divine wisdom or any kind of special spiritual understanding. Instead, it relies on a language system to produce responses based on lots of texts from the Bible and religion.
