Christian Computing

Jesus and Satan are sitting around in the world between, having an argument over who is the better programmer. They discuss this for several hours until they agree to hold a contest, with God as the judge. Sitting at their computers, they begin typing furiously, lines of code filling up the screens, for almost three hours. Seconds before the contest is to end a bolt of lightning takes out the electricity. A few moments later, power is restored, and God announces that the contest is over. He asks Satan to show him his programming. Visibly upset, Satan says, "I have nothing! I lost it all when the power went out."

"Let's see if Jesus has fared any better," God says. Jesus pulls up his screen and shows God a vivid display as the voices of an angelic choir resound from the speakers. Satan is shocked. "But how?" he cries. "I lost everything, but Jesus' program is intact? How did he do it?" God laughed. "Everyone knows...Jesus saves."
