Jesus Saves

Jesus and Satan have a discussion as to who is the advanced programmer and decide to hold a contest, with God as the judge. They sit themselves at their computers and begin. They type energetically, lines of code streaming up the screen, for several hours straight. But right before the end of the struggle, a bolt of lightning strikes, taking out the power. Seconds later, the power is restored, and God states that the competition is over.

He asks Satan to show what he has come up with. Satan is obviously upset, and cries, "I have nothing. I lost it all when the electricity went out."

"Very well, then," says God, "let us see if Jesus progressed any better."

Jesus enters a last line of code, and the screen comes to life in colorful display, the voices of an angelic choir pour forth from the speakers. Satan is shocked.

He stutters, "B-b-but how? I lost everything, yet Jesus’ software is undamaged. How did he do it?"

God smiled all-knowingly, "Jesus saves."
