I’m Sure He’d Be a Good Salesperson

Thunderf00t and the religiousantagonist are collaborating again!

The premise: Jesus visits a Christian book store and he wants a job!

But didn’t the Bible say something about not turning the Father’s house into a marketplace…?

I’m surprised the bookstore was his first choice. You would think an out-of-work Jesus would try to get a job as a pastor…

    I don’t get it. Jesus said not to make the temple a marketplace, so there shouldn’t be stores?

    Um…I’m surprised we’re thinking about a J-O-B for Jesus. The way I remember the Bible, Jesus was an independent contractor. These days, what he did back then would translate to basically being a journeyman carpenter (in terms of a trade) or as a life coach (in terms of his philosophy for living). 

    So, forget the bookstore. After coming back from the dead, I doubt any of us would go back to working W-2 again. Why would we expect Jesus (or any mythological figure) to?

    That was awful…. Not funny, and just uncomfortable watching.  One of the worst things I have watched on YouTube.

  • Interesting idea, but it would have been better used on, say, a CEO or founder of a chain of Christian book stores, rather than some unsuspecting cashier (who by the way gave an excellent response to “Jesus’s” question).

  • Swing and miss.  I like most of his other stuff though.

  • All the carpentry jobs have gone to China? 

    Seriously? ‘Cause I for sure see lots of men building houses and what not on a daily basis in suburbia. 

    The store isn’t a temple. Rather, he should have visited those nice gift shops that some churches have.
