Religious Mad Libs?

Sometimes the explanations apologists give are so poor, that just changing one or two words can flip the meaning and not effect the accuracy at all...

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: Do you think the world will ever be at peace? For some reason, everyone talks about peace on earth at Christmastime, but if anything, the world just seems to be getting worse. What's the problem? --L.R.F.
I'd say that the problem is that LRF is expecting a non-existent deity to magically fix the world.
DEAR L.R.F.: You probably know what happened that first Christmas night: Angels suddenly appeared to a group of humble shepherds, telling them the long-expected Savior of the world had been born in the nearby town of Bethlehem. But they not only announced His birth; they also promised that He would bring peace to our troubled world (see Luke 2:8-14).
Well, that's the unsubstantiated claim of one religion anyway...
Why hasn't this happened? Were the angels wrong?
This should be good...
No, not at all, because whenever we open our hearts and lives to Christ, God gives us peace --peace with God, peace with others, and peace in our hearts. And if everyone on earth truly followed Jesus and lived the way He taught us to live, then we'd know what it means to live in a world of peace.
No, not at all, because whenever we open our hearts and lives to Thor, Odin gives us peace --peace with The All-Father, peace with others, and peace in our hearts. And if everyone on earth truly followed Thor and lived the way He taught us to live, then we'd know what it means to live in a world of peace.
But this hasn't happened because we've turned our backs on God and chosen to go our own way. The fault isn't God's, but ours, because we've run our own lives and left God out of the picture. Instead of love, justice and peace, we allow hate, corruption and violence to rule our hearts. The Bible says, "In all his thoughts there is no room for God" (Psalm 10:4).

Lasting peace will never come until Christ returns to establish His kingdom of perfect righteousness and justice. Until then, we are called to pray and work for peace. Above all, however, this Christmas open your heart and life to Christ's peace. His promise is true: "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you" (John 14:27).
Lasting peace will never come until Thor returns to establish His kingdom of perfect righteousness and justice. Until then, we are called to pray and work for peace. Above all, however, this Yule open your heart and life to Thor's peace. His promise is true: "I shall destroy the great demon world serpent to save all the realms."

There you have it... 'Unquestionable' proof that the Norse religion is the true one and will one day fully deliver.
