Rare Spiritual Roboticsby John McCann
Have you heard that “God does not make robots”? Does this mean that God cannot control His creation? Indeed, man does have choice in the natural world, but the Spiritual world is different. Only God can make Spiritual decisions. God is Spirit and He controls the Spiritual world. Meanwhile, man is of the dust of the earth and controls some of the natural world. In religion, the natural and the Spiritual worlds are often blended together, but there is a difference concerning Who controls what. In order to understand the Bible, you need to understand the different components of the two worlds. Jesus said that if His kingdom were of this natural world, His servants would fight (see John 18:36). The sovereignty of God stands on the statute that God has allowed man limited control in the natural world, but no control in the Spiritual world. However, man can operate in the Spiritual when God programs and controls him, not exactly like a robot, but closer to a robot than a free independent agent. Spiritual Robotics is through faith, the DNA code of God, when planted into a human heart produces a righteous walk in step with the signals, anointing, commands and will of God. Therefore, the analogy of a robot is appropriate when God programs and controls man, whether in the natural world or the Spiritual world.

Excellent book. I really loved the stories in the book.Easy to understand everyone. Finally, I highly recommended.
Rare Spiritual Robots by John McCann is a non-fictional book that focuses on how God works with his creation while using the illustration of contemporary robotic technology. The Bible is of course the most printed, most read and most misrepresented, misunderstood book of all time. I myself have found often my understandings of the word of God, was completely off the mark from one time period in my life to another. John McCann takes the word of God and guides you through an extraordinary detailed compendium backed my scripture every step of the way. Often analogies are used throughout the Bible, example Jesus using the word sheep to refer to his followers. This is the author’s focus here, to show the reader that many argue the case of Free Will. The author shares with us a statement made to him, that. “God does not make robots.” This became the Genesis if you will for his book, Rare Spiritual Robots. Sharing with the reader that if man has complete FREE WILL then, this limits the creative and sovereign control of the LORD. He makes it clear, that while we are in control of doing right from wrong, going here to there, we do not have free will in the spiritual sense. Only God, for God has always existed and MAN is a CREATION. I appreciate that the author is quick to point out that he is not stating that Jesus was a robot of his Father in Heaven, since a Robot is a creation and Jesus has always existed. I found this to be a compelling read, as scripture backs every single statement, and explains it in concise detail. No doctrinal point of view is forced upon the reader and I think that makes this a book perfect for Bible studies or simply a forum for healthy debatable discussion. The book is exceptionally written it makes for a perfect companion for any student of the Bible.
