Burglar and an Elderly Woman
An elderly woman had just returned to her home from an evening of church
services when she was startled by an intruder. 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.)
The burglar stopped in his tracks. The woman calmly called the police and
explained what she had done.
As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar, "Why did you
just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you."
"Scripture?" replied the burglar. "She said she had an ax and two 38's!"
