A preacher entered a class while the lesson was in progress, and asked a
question - Who broke down the walls of Jericho?
A boy answered - I didn't do it.
The preacher said to the teacher - Is this the usual behavior in this class?
Said she - This boy is honest and I really believe him. I really don't
think he did it.
Leaving the room the preacher sought out a deacon and explained what had
happened. The deacon said - I have known both the teacher and the boy for
years and neither of them would do such a thing.
By this time the preacher was heartsick and reported it to the Sunday School
board. They said - We see no point in being disturbed. Let's pay for the
damage to the walls and charge it to upkeep!
