A drunk is walking home from the bar one afternoon, when he happened across a pastor doing a water baptismal in the river. He stops and watches for awhile, and just as he is ready to leave, the pastor calls him into the river and asks him if he knows Jesus.
"Well of course I know Jesus!" the drunk tells him.
Looking at the drunk, the Pastor, noticing a certain insincerity in his manner, grabbed the drunk quickly and pushed him down into the water and held him there for about 10 seconds. He finally lets him up and asks the drunk if he saw Jesus. To which the drunk replies, "No."
So the pastor pushes the drunk down into the water again, and holds him under for about 20 seconds this time. Once again, the pastor asks the drunk if he has seen Jesus, and once again the drunk answers, "No."
So again the pastor pushes the drunk under the water and holds him under, this time for almost a full minute. Worried that he might be drowning this man, he pulls the drunk up and asks him a third time if he has finally seen Jesus.
The drunk kind of looks around at the river and says,
"Nope, are ya sure this is where he fell in?
