> Jesus and Satan have an argument as to who is the better computer
> programmer. This goes on for a few hours until they agree to hold a
> contest
> with God as the judge.
> They set themselves before their computers and begin. They type
> furiously
> for several hours, lines of code streaming up the screen.
> Seconds before the end of the competition, a bolt of lightning
> strikes,
> taking out the electricity. Moments later, the power is restored, and
> God
> announces that the contest is over. He asks Satan to show what he has
> come
> up with.
> Satan is visibly upset, and cries, "I have nothing! I lost it all when
> the
> power went out."
> "Very well, then," says God, "let us see if Jesus fared any better."
> Jesus enters a command, and the screen comes to life in vivid display,
> the
> voices of an angelic choir pour forth from the speakers.
> Satan is astonished. He stutters, "But how?! I lost everything, yet
> Jesus'
> program is intact! How did he do it?"
> God chuckles, "Jesus saves."
