Surprised Burglar A lady surprised a burglar in her kitchen. He was all loaded down with the things he was going to steal. She had no weapon and was all alone. The only thing that she could think to do was quote scripture. So, she held up a hand and yelled out, "Acts 2:38!" The burglar suddenly quaked in fear and then froze with his hands in the air. The woman quickly called 911 for the police. When the cops arrived, the burglar was still frozen in place. The police were very much surprised that a woman alone with no weapon could so terrorize a clearly hardened criminal. One of them asked the lady, "How did you do that?" The woman replied, "I quoted scripture." Bewildered, the cop turned to the burglar. "What was it about the scripture that had such an effect on you?" The burglar replied, "Scripture! What scripture? I thought she said she had an axe and two .38's!"
