Jesus is a profit

I was reading a tabloid while waiting for my haircut when a column written by a Catholic Priest caught my attention. In there was an anecdote from a theology teacher. The theology teacher asked his (or her) student to describe Jesus. One described Jesus as the Savior, the other as Love, etc.

There were many answers but there’s one that caught the teacher’s attention. In capitol letters, one student has written: Jesus is a P-R-O-F-I-T.
He knew the student, a businessman.

When asked by the teacher what the student meant when he had written that Christ is a P-R-O-F-I-T?
The student replied: “Profit like Elisha and Elijah. Profit pu sir, profit!”
“Aahhhhhh, prophet! Jesus is a prophet.”

Well, with the way some Christian organizations make money out of the Gospel these days (sad but true), maybe what the businessman wrote down is based on worldly truth.

Yes, I agree. :-)
