It was a few minutes before the services started. The congregation was seated in the pews and talking quietly. Without warning, Satan appeared at the front of the church.
Everyone started screaming and running for an exit, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away from evil incarnate. Soon everyone had exited the church except for one elderly gentleman.
He sat calmly seemingly oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate enemy was in front of him.
Satan walked right up to the old man and said, "Don't you know who I am?
The man replied, "Yep, sure do."
"Aren't you afraid of me?" Satan asked.
"Nope, sure ain't." said the old gentleman.
Do you know I can kill you with a single word?" asked Satan.
"Don't doubt it for a minute," returned the old man in an even tone.
"Don't you realize that I could cause you profound, horrifying AGONY for all eternity?" persisted Satan.
"Yep," was the calm reply.
"And yet you're still not afraid?" asked Satan.
More than a little perturbed, Satan asked, "Well, why aren't you afraid of me"?
The old man looked Satan right in the eye and calmly replied, "Been married to your sister for 52 years."
