Pullaiah was a hard-headed farmer. When a flood hit the area, he climbed onto the roof of his house. A rescue boat came along but Pullaiah told them, "No, thanks. I have faith in the Lord. He will save me. The waves got even higher and Pullaiah had to go to the very top of the roof. Another boat came by to save him, but he still insisted that the Lord would save him. Then the water began to get his feet wet anda helicopter swooped down to take him away. But Pullaiah still depended on the Lord to save him. Well, you can easily imagine what happened. Yes. Pullaiah was drowned. When he stood before the Lord in the next world, he complained, "Lord, I had such faith in you. Why didn't you save me?" To which the Lord replied, "What more do you want me to do? I sent you two boats and a helicopter." "It is by his actions that a man is put right with God, and not by his faith alone"
