A man bought a mule from a preacher. The preacher told the man that this mule had been trained in a special way. The only way to make the mule go, was to say, "Hallelujah!" The only way to make the mule stop, was to say, "Amen!"
The man was pleased with his purchase and immediately got on the animal to try out the preacher's instructions. "Hallelujah!" shouted the man. The mule began to trot. "Amen!" shouted the man. The mule stopped immediately. "This is great!" said the man. With a "Hallelujah," he rode off, very proud of his new purchase.
The man traveled for a long time through some mountains. Soon he was heading toward a cliff. He could not remember the word to make the mule stop.
"Stop," said the man. "Halt!" he cried. The mule just kept going. "Oh, no... Bible!... Church!... Please Stop!!" shouted the man. The mule just began to trot faster. He was getting closer and closer to the cliff edge.
Finally, in desperation, the man said a prayer. "Please, dear Lord. Make this mule stop before I go off the end of this mountain, In Jesus name, AMEN."
The mule came to an abrupt stop, just one step from the edge of the cliff.
"HALLELUJAH!", shouted the man.
