It Must Be Satan...

A few minutes before the worship service got underway, the church go-ers were quietly sitting in their pews, talking softly and waiting for church to begin

Suddenly, Satan appeared at the front of the church.

Terrified, everyone began screaming and running for the rear exit, even trampling each other in a frantic effort to escape from this unexpected appearance of evil incarnate.

Soon, everyone had exited the church--except for one old elderly gentleman who calmly sat in his pew, seemingly oblivious to Satan's presence.

Satan walked up to the old man in a menacing fashion and said, "don't you know who I am?"

"Yep, sure do," replied the elderly man, quite calmly.

"Aren't you afraid of me?" Satan asked.

"Nope, sure ain't" said the man.

"Don't you realize that I can kill you with a word?" asked Satan.

"Don't doubt it for a minute," replied the old man, absolutely unfazed.

"Doesn't it bother you at all to know that I can cause you horrible pain and bring terrible suffering into your life?" the devil persisted . . .

"Nope," was the man's reply.

Exasperated, the devil demanded of the old man, "why are you not afraid of me?"

The old man calmly replied . . . "Been married to your sister for 48 years."
