An elderly woman had just returned home from an evening worship service 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 the elderly woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done.
Shortly, several officers arrived and took the burglar into custody.
As he was placing handcuffs on the burglar, one of the officer's asked, "Why didn't you run? Why did you just stand there, all the lady did was recite a scripture verse?"
"Scripture?" replied the burglar.
"She said she had an axe and two .38's!"
