The article discusses the problem of an influence of human interactions with machines
that simulate personality on spirituality understood in theology as a reality founded
on the relationship with God. The perspective of theoretical theological reflection
is presented here, based on the fundamental assumptions of the Christian doctrine.
The basic assumption is the necessity of interpersonal relationships for our spiritual
development. A relationship with a machine cannot replace interpersonal interactions.
It cannot fulfil the functions typical for the development of spirituality. If encounters
with a machine are to simulate personal relationships, they can also have an impact
on spirituality. Above all, the possibility of adverse consequences of this influence has
been noted, with the proposed predictions and hypotheses offered as a starting point
for further debates.
