An hour later, another boat appeared.
“Come on, don’t be silly, time’s running out, get on board.”
“No thanks,” said the man again. “I have faith in Jesus, he

Two hours later, the tidal wave could be seen four miles away.
A third boat arrived and the man was urged to get aboard,
but he still refused and within half an hour, the island was
covered by the tidal wave and the man drowned.
A little later, up in heaven, the man bumped into Jesus.
“I had such faith in you, but you never came to save me and
I drowned. I can’t believe it,” he moaned.
“You can’t believe it! What about me?” said Jesus. “I sent
three bloody boats to save you!”
