He fell to the ground, and then he heard a voice saying, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?’” Acts 9:4
Saul was not doing anything illegal as he was harassing, arresting, and murdering “any followers of the Way, men or women, that he might find” (v2).

Keep the faith.
Market like you mean it. Now go sell something.
