Jesus and Satan - 03-10-2008, 06:25 PM
Jesus and Satan were having an ongoing argument about who was better on his computer. They had been going at it for days, and God was tired of the constant bickering.
Finally, God said, "Cool it. I am going to set up a test that will run for two hours, and I will judge who does the better job."
So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away.
They e-mailed with attachments.
They did some genealogy reports.
They created labels and cards.
They did every known job.
Jesus worked with heavenly efficiency, and Satan was faster than hell.
But ten minutes before their time was up, lightning suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, rain poured, and, of course, the electricity went off.
Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word known in the Underworld.
Jesus just sighed.
The electricity finally came back on, and each of them restarted their computers. Satan started searching frantically, screaming, "It's gone! It's all GONE! I lost everything when the power went out!"
Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files.
Satan observed this and became irate. "Wait! He cheated! How did he do it?"
God shrugged and said, "Jesus Saves."
