"Jesus juking", the term, is relatively new (hat tip to Jon Acuff!) But the activity has been around for a long time And, by golly, I'm good at it.
Not only have I participated in it, I've been employed in Christian radio, which means I've heard Jesus-juking at its highest levels, in hundreds of different contexts. It's all about adding a comment that will make everyone feel silly, and just plain unspiritual, for having the audacity to go about their daily lives. Like I say, I've done this, too.
So here are some tips:
1) Remember that silliness cannot be tolerated. And everything, compared to your mature spirituality, is silliness.
Him: I really like this comedian! His routine about getting frustrated with his broken washing machine is so true and hilarious!
You: (sigh) I just don't see how getting angry at a machine glorifies the Lord.
2) "Spiritualize" EVERYTHING... and then contextualize your subtle rebuke by "tying in" to what they're talking about
Her: I like baseball.
You: You know, Jesus tells us we'll never truly be "safe" at "home" if we put energy into worldly things.
3) Make EVERYTHING about the "end days".
Him: Huh. Says here in the paper that "Rockstar" is now outselling "Powerade", and --
You: We are told in scripture that "men will thirst". Just another example that we are at the Very End of Time.
4) Don't let anyone get away with a hobby.
Her: They've got this really cool model train setup in their garage, with little trees and --
You: Wow. Wish they'd put that kind of effort into the Kingdom.
5) Compare sports crowds, always, to church crowds.
Him: Wow! Touchdown! That was clutch! Woohoo!
You: If only people would get this excited about the Lord on Sunday mornings.
6) Music is easy pickings. You can juke forever.
Him: I like this song!
You: It's not Christian.
Him: I like this CHRISTIAN song!
You: Why don't they say the word, "Jesus"?
Him: I like this CHRISTIAN song about JESUS!
You: Whatever happened to songs that were just scripture?
Him: I like this CHRISTIAN song about JESUS that's straight from SCRIPTURE!
You: So sad that we have to use a "club beat" that reminds people of the things of the world.
Him: I like this CHRISTIAN song about JESUS that's straight from SCRIPTURE and is A CAPPELLA.
You: I prefer prayerful silence.
7) Reading the Bible is awesome. But not awesome enough.
Her: You know, I'm reading the Bible more these days! I'm really enjoying it.
You: Hm. That's interesting. But you can't rely on your own, very human, flawed interpretation. Instead, you should really read a John MacArthur Study Bible.
8) Do NOT allow people to confess their weaknesses. Pounce. And then use "brother", or "sister".
Her: I really struggle with prayer, and --
You: I'll remember to pray for you, that you'll finally put your faith in God, sister.
9) Relate all appreciation of nature to religious arguments.
Him: Man, what a beautiful tree! It's amazing, and --
You: Amazing, isn't it, that people worship trees instead of the Creator?
10) Christmas is a GOLDEN opportunity to juke.
Him: I got some neat Christmas cards with a star on them, and --
You: It's too bad how they try to replace Jesus with a generic "star" pattern.
Him: I got some neat Christmas cards with baby Jesus on them, and --
You: It's too bad society's so approving of BABY Jesus, but not the grown-up one who called down judgment.
Him: I got some neat Christmas cards with an adult Jesus on them, calling down judgment, and --
You: It's too bad card-makers are trying to make money off selling pictures of Jesus.
10b) Combining Christmas with music? PERFECT.
Him: I love Bing Crosby's "White Christmas"
You: It's a secular song.
Him: I love Bing Crosby's "Hark the Herald"
You: It's too bad Bing Crosby wasn't a Christian.
Him: I love Kirk Franklin's "Hark the Herald"
You: It's too bad the original melody is borrowed from a beer hall song.
Him: How about I just love Kirk Cameron?
