students at a Baptist seminary in Alabama decided they would spend their summer doing evangelistic work in the rural area around Montgomery. One hot day they stopped their car in front of a farmhouse and proceeded up the path through a gantlet of screaming children and barking dogs. When they knocked on the screen door, the woman of the house stopped her scrubbing over a tub and washboard, brushed hair and perspiration from her brow and asked them what they wanted.
"We would like to tell you how to obtain eternal life," they answered.
The tired homemaker hesitated for a moment and then replied, "Thank you, but I don't believe I could stand it!"
