Semantics Scripture Firearms Both?
An elderly woman had just returned to her home from an evening of church services when she was startled by an intruder. Unfortunately, she found a burglar robbing her home of its valuables.
Recalling the topic of the evening sermon she yelled, “STOP! Acts 2:38! (Paraphrasing this verse “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit”).
The burglar froze in his tracks. The woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done.
As the officer cuffed the man to take him into custody, he asked the burglar, “Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was to yell a scripture verse at you.”
“Scripture?” replied the burglar. I thought that she said she had an ax and two .38’s!”
