An elderly woman returned home from church and was startled to find an intruder in her house.
Catching the man in the act of burglarizing her home, she yelled, “Stop! Acts 2:38!” (“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven.”)
The burglar stopped dead in his tracks and threw up his hands.
The woman calmly called the police and explained what has happened.
When the police came they found the burglar standing still with his hands still up in the air.
As he was placing the handcuffs on the burglar, one of the police officers asked, “Why did you just stand there? All the lady did was mention a scripture verse.”
“Scripture?” screamed the burglar, who was still shaking with fear. “She said she had an axe and two 38’s!”
