In today's visually-oriented society, what better way to get the Christian lifestyle across than to show your teens how dirty sin can be! In this unique half-hour skit, the Demon literally smears dirt on the kids' T-shirts when they are hurtful to others, watch questionable movies, skip church, etc. The Spirit is standing by, however, offering a better way to live and handing out clean T-shirts when the kids "clean up their act."

Yet, Jesus won't defend himself, and the high priest Caiaphas insists Pilate sentence Jesus to death, or Caiaphas will report Pilate to Rome. It's all political, but there's so much at stake.
