Jesus Saves

August 29, 2010

 I love weird stuff.  If that weird stuff has a religious connotation, I love it even more.  And, if you add a southern twist to said weirdness, that’s the ultimate.  A good example is a type of sign you’ll see throughout the rural south: the “Jesus Saves” sign.  The variety of these signs are amazing.  There’s the neon church sign:

The car sign:

One of my favorites, using Jesus for a little bump for your business:

Another attempt at receiving a divine bump:

Jesus Saves graffiti:

More graffiti, this time by someone punctuation issues:

Then, of course, there’s the sarcastic stuff:

“Jesus Saves” scroll saw art:

They’ll even put it on a pocketknife:

Finally, just because I’m that kind of guy, I’ll leave you with this joke:

Jesus and Satan were having a discussion as to who is the better programmer.  This goes on for a few hours until they come to an agreement to hold a contest, with God as the judge.  They sit themselves at their computers and begin. They type furiously, lines of code streaming up the screen, for several hours straight.

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, “Jesus, show me the results of all your typing.”

Jesus enters a command, and the screen comes to life in full color,  a YouTube video begins playing and you could see and hear the voices of an angelic choir from the surround sound speakers.  Satan is completely astonished.  He stutters, “B-b-but how? I lost everything, yet Jesus’ program is intact.  How did he do it?”  God smiled all-knowingly and said, “Jesus saves.”
