"Hello, is that Jeff?"
"Yes it is."
"I just wanted to check on the status of Jesus Christ."
"OK, yes, well, he's the same as he was yesterday."
"Thanks, that's good to know, Jeff."
"Jeff - what do you think the status of Jesus Christ will be tomorrow?"
"Well, I think he'll be the same as he was yesterday and as he is today. In fact, I'd go as far as to say he'll be the same for ever."
"OK, that's great, Jeff, thanks."
"Not a problem."
"But I think I'll call you again tomorrow, just to be sure."
