Jesus & Satan Computing ContestJesus and Satan were having an ongoing argument
about who managed to get the most out of his computer. This had been going on
for days and God said, "Cool it. I am going to set up a test that will run two
hours and I will judge who does the better job."
So down they sat at the keyboards and typed away. They moused away. They did
spreadsheets, they wrote reports, they sent faxes, they sent out e-mail, they
sent out e-mail with attachments, they downloaded, they did some genealogy
reports, they made cards, they did every known job.
But just a few minutes before the two hours were up, a lightning bolt flashed
across the sky. The thunder rolled and the rains came down hard. And of course
the electricity went off.
Satan was furious. He fumed and fussed and he ranted and raved. All to no avail.
The electricity stayed off.
But after a bit, the rains stopped and the electricity came back on.
Satan screamed, "I lost it all when the power went off! What am I going to do?
What happened to Jesus' work?"
Jesus just sat and smiled.
Again Satan asked about the work that Jesus had done.
As Jesus turned his computer back on, the screen glowed and when he pushed
"print," it was all there.
"How did he do it?" Satan asked.
God smiled and said, "Jesus Saves."
