A cross to die for

“How did you do that?

I changed the script … moved the props … took a break … whipped out a special effect … did a bit of CGI …  I am God and I can do whatever I like.  That’s what you all tell me: “God can do anything.”  So I have just hopped off the cross because I can.  You look bigger now I am down here instead of up there.  What about me – do I look bigger or smaller?

How about you?

Thanks –

And your point is … ?

Nobody dares mess with the bible because it is your words.

So why isn’t this conversation in the bible, Paul?  These are my words…
