The Power of The Bible
An elderly woman had just returned to her home from an evening
of religious services when she was startled by an intruder.
As she caught the man in the middle of robbing her home of
its valuables, she yelled, "Stop! Acts 2:38!" (A Scripture
verse saying "turn from your sin")
The burglar stopped dead in his tracks. Then 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 at you."
"Scripture?" replied the burglar, "I thought she said she had
an AXE and two 38s!"
