Christ told CBN's Studio 5 earlier this year how fun it is when Christians learn to laugh at themselves sometimes. 

"I feel like if there is any ribbing or maybe roasting of the church or Christian culture, I like to say, 'It's not me pointing at you guys, it's me shining a mirror at us. I'm in the front of it, look at us,'" Crist said. 

 "A lot of times it comes off as if someone is making a joke about Christianity in the public forum, whether it be on social media...And I'm kind of like, 'Hey I'm with you. I grew up here, I love Jesus, I think the local church is our only hope. That being said, we do some weird stuff.'"
