An old woman had just returned to her home from an evening church service when she was startled by an uninvited quest. She caught the thief red-handed, and screamed, “Stop! Acts 2:38 (meaning, repent and be baptized…)!”
The thief stopped dead in his tracks. The old woman then calmly called the police station and explained what she had done.
As the police officer handcuffed the thief, he asked, “Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you.”
“Scripture?” replied the thief, “I thought she said she had an axe and two 38’s Smith Wesson!”
