Imagine going into a bank, innocently filling out a withdrawal slip, and within minutes being arrested by the police. When Ron Schatz filled out a withdrawal slip in an American bank, he had no idea that handcuffs would soon be placed upon him. It took a while to straighten out the story. The teller had had pressed the silent alarm button after turning the withdrawal slip over and seeing the words, "This is a hold-up."

As it turned out, some wise guy had written "This is a hold-up" on the back of every withdrawal slip sitting on the counter. It’s was someone’s idea of a practical joke. A few words written on a piece of paper caused a terribly embarrassing chain reaction.

The gospel is a chain reaction which echoes through the corridors of eternity.
