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 man who sat calmly in his pew without moving, seemingly oblivious to the fact that God’s 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.’
‘Nope, sure ain’t’ said the man.
‘Don’t you realize I can kill you with one word?’ asked Satan.
‘Don’t doubt it for a minute ‘ returned the 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 you’re still not afraid?’ asked Satan.
‘Nope’ said the man.
More than a little perturbed, Satan asked ‘ Why aren’t you afraid of me?’
The man calmly replied ‘Been married to your sister for many years.’
