elderly woman had just returned to her home from an evening of church
services when an intruder startled her.
She caught the man
in the act of robbing her home of its valuables and yelled, "Stop!
Acts 2:38" (Repent and be baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ
so that your sins may be forgiven).
Tthe burglar stopped
in his tracks. The woman calmly called the police and explained what
she had done. As the officer cuffed the man, he asked him: "Why
did you just stand there? All the lady did was yell a scripture to you."
replied the intruder. "She said she had an ax and two 38's!"
