A few minutes before the church services started, the congregation was sitting in their pews and talking. Suddenly Satan appeared at the front of the church.
Everyone started screaming and running for the back entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away from evil incarnate. Soon the church was empty -- except for one elderly gentleman who sat calmly in his pew without moving, seemingly oblivious to the fact that Gods ultimate enemy was in his presence.
So Satan walked up to the man and said, "Do you know who I am?"
The man replied, "Yep, sure do."
"Arent you afraid of me?" Satan asked.
"Nope, sure aint," said the man.
"Dont you realize I can kill you with one word?" asked Satan.
"Dont doubt it for a minute," returned the old man, in an even tone.
"Did you know that I can cause you profound, horrifying agony for all eternity?" persisted Satan.
"Yep," was the calm reply.
"And youre still not afraid?" asked Satan.
"Nope," said the old man.
More than a little perturbed, Satan asked, "Why arent you afraid of me, old man!?"
The man calmly replied, "Been married to your sister for 48 years."
