> 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
> hearing all the bickering.
> Finally, God said, "Cool it. I am going to set up a test which will
> take two hours and I will judge who does the better job."
> So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away.
> They moused.
> They did spreadsheets.
> They wrote reports.
> They sent faxes.
> They sent e-mail.
> They sent out e-mail with attachments.
> They downloaded.
> They made cards.
> They did every known job. But, ten minutes before the time was up,
> lightning suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, the rain
poured, and, of course, the electricity went off.
> Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed in every curse word known
in the underworld.
> Jesus just sighed.
> The electricity finally flickered 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 his files from the
past two hours. Satan observed this and became even more irate.
> Wait! He cheated!!! How did he do it???
> God shrugged and said....
> "Jesus Saves."
