preacher baptizing people in the river. He proceeds to walk into the water and
subsequently bumps into the preacher. The preacher turns around and is almost
overcome by the smell of alcohol, whereupon he asks he drunk, "Are you ready
to find Jesus?" The drunk answers, "Yes I am." So the preacher grabs him and
dunks him in the water. He pulls him up and asks the drunk, "Brother have you
found Jesus?" The drunk replies, "No, I haven't found Jesus." The preacher,
shocked at the answer, dunks him into the water again for a little longer. He
again pulls him out of the water and asks again. "Have you found Jesus my
brother?" The drunk again answers, "No, I haven't found Jesus."
By this time the preacher is at his wits end and dunks the drunk in the water
again --- but this time holds him down for about 30 seconds. When he begins
kicking his arms and legs, the preacher pulls him up and again asks the drunk,
"For the love of God man, have you found Jesus?"
The drunk wipes his eyes, gasps for air, and says, "Are you sure this is
where he fell in?"
