I felt so funny when I, an outsider in this God talk, noticed the way that people just took a piece of God they like and think that is what God is about, and further use that in their conveniences.

I don't think crop understands us.

Well, now I turned myself in. Wink 

Anyway, just chat for fun. I don't think anyone will change his mind.

    I don't see any person dying, including me, as tragic.  On the other hand, I see it rendering the ownership of a winning lottery ticket as hmmmmm dead neutral in the scheme of things.

    Whatever a person believes, or doesn't believe about an afterlife, there's probably universal agreement that death brings a change in perspective.  If there's not any afterlife the change involves a vanishing act in perspective.  If there is, we all have our own views on what it's about.

    But I'll bet we'll all agree the dead guy wasn't overjoyed about the specific matter of winning the lottery.

      There'd be a lot less tossing around of God talk and praising if folks didn't think giving him his marching orders (reference their own convenience and gain), could succeed in manipulating and cajoling him into running things as they wish them to be run.  Usually involving new houses, red pickup trucks, diamond rings, etc.

          yup.  can't use God (for anything),  but especially just to make you rich.  that would be a no no.
