Bethlehem – After a long period of silence on the matter, Jesus finally came forward today to forgive the Fight of Gods developers for nerfing him.

“They can take away my infinite combos, but they can’t take away my infinite love for the Fight of Gods development team,” explained the son of God earlier today. “I forgive the team entirely. It’s only fair that the other fighters should have a chance to win too.”

Fight of Gods was originally released in 2017 as a Steam Early Access title. Recently the game left early access to launch the complete edition of the game, which many are referring to as “The New Testament”. Leading up to this, the game had changed substantially, including several nerfs to our lord and savior who was originally seen to be overpowered.

“Goddamn, Jesus was so broken,” recalled avid Fight of Gods player OdinMasta48. “He just had so many tools. His special moves were amazing, and he had the best cross-up setups in the game. Thank God he’s much more balanced in the latest version.”

“This isn’t the first time that people have tried to nerf me,” added the Lord Jesus Christ. “The thing is, I might lay low for a while, but I always bounce back. The nerfs were unsettling at first, but they won’t stop me from teaching the world about forgiveness, generosity, and miraculous comebacks.”

“I think there’s someone in all of our lives that we could forgive,” said our lord and savior, Jesus Christ. “Maybe there’s someone you know who rage quits, uses a WiFi connection, or plays on pad. We need to urge them to do better, and the first step is forgiveness.”

At press time Jesus reminded us to not be quick to judge, and left us with the following statement, “let he who is without sin throw the first fireball.”
