DIVINE CODE WRITING...
Divine Code Writing...
Between moments of dispensing wisdom, managing things
ecclesiastic, and occasionally intervening in world affairs, it seems
that earth's religious leaders had also learned computer programming.
One day, a great contest was held to test their skills.
After days and days of fierce competition, only two leaders remained for the last day's event;
Jesus and Mohammed. The judge described the software application required for the final test,
and gave the signal to start writing code.
The two contestants feverishly typed away on their keyboards. Routines, classes, applets and
applications flew by on their screens at incredible speeds. Windows,
dialogs, and other intricate graphics began forming on their monitors.
The clock showed that the contest would soon be finished. Suddenly, a
bolt of lightning flashed and the power went out.
After a moment it came back on-just in time for the clock to announce that at last, the competition
was over. The judge asked the two contestants to reveal their
finished software. Mohammed angrily said that he'd lost it all in the
power outage. The judge turned to the other competitor, Jesus smiled,
clicked a mouse and a dazzling application appeared on His screen.
After just a few moments, the judge was clearly impressed and declared Jesus the victor. When
asked what made the differance on which the decision was made, the
judge said that the unique characteristic which set the winner apart
from all the other leaders was that..."Jesus saves."
