Mr. Deity and the Quitter is the forty-first episode of the Mr. Deity webseries.


Jesus decides to quit his job as Savior.


  • Jesus found the script behind the firmament. In the Bible, the firmament was the sky, or the dome that was believed to cover the Earth.
  • Jesus mentions that Mr. Deity didn't know that the moon reflects the light of the Sun, which is what Genesis 1:16 says.
  • Jesus mentions the talking snake in Genesis 3:1.
  • Jesus mentions the Forbidden Fruit introduced in Genesis 2:16-17.
  • Mr. Deity says that the movie Babe, about a pig and containing talking animals, inspired him to have a talking snake.
  • Jesus gets publicans confused with Republicans. Publicans were Roman tax collectors; Republicans are members of the predominant conservative political party of the United States.
  • Jesus wonders why God cannot be in the presence of imperfect sinners, and yet Jesus, who is also God, can.
  • Jesus points out that the doctrine that death is caused by sin is incorrect because with evolution death occurs before humans.
  • Mr. Deity says that Jesus never questioned sending hailstones down when the Israelites conquered Caanan in Mr. Deity and the Promised Land.
  • Mr. Deity says that Jesus never questioned having Abraham sacrifice Isaac in Mr. Deity and the Skeptic.
  • Jesus reminds Mr. Deity that his sacrifice was supposed to satisfy his sense of unyielding justice, as said in Mr. Deity and the Identity Crisis.
  • Jesus insults Mr. Deity using similar words to the beginning of Chapter 2 of The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins: "The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully."
