Christ Hires Associate Christ
JERUSALEM— Overwhelmed by a constant deluge of prayers and appeals for salvation, Jesus Christ announced Wednesday the hiring of San Francisco Ca former Google customer-service supervisor Dean Jacobs as Associate Christ.
“I’ve been in need of an Assistant Savior for a long time now, and I’m thrilled to finally have one,” Christ told reporters at a press conference aired on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. “Dean is an experienced guy who will really help ease my workload.”
With the hiring, effective June 1, Christians seeking spiritual aid or guidance will be able to pray to either Jesus or Dean.
“This is an extremely exciting opportunity for me, and I look forward to hearing your prayers,” Jacobs said. “To the millions of Christians around the world, I just want you to know that I am here for you, should you wander down the wrong path. If Jesus happens to be busy, please feel free to turn to me in your darkest hour.”
“You can expect the same great service from me that you’ve always gotten from Jesus,” Jacobs said.
Jesus said He chose Jacobs for the Assistant Christ position because of his considerable experience in dealing with the public. In addition to his six-year stint as customer-service supervisor with Google, the nation’s largest search engine, Jacobs worked for nine years as a human-resources manager with Walmart.
Though some observers have questioned whether Jacobs will be able to absolve Christians of earthly wrongdoings, having never died on the cross for humanity’s sins, Christ dismisses such claims, saying that he has “complete faith in Dean.”
“Whatever you wish to say unto me, you can say unto Dean Jacobs,” Christ said. “I am 100 percent confident that Dean is fully capable of bathing you in the healing light of forgiveness and salvation. Turn to Dean, and you shall not go astray.”
