    I think it said something like "Larry's Video and Chiropractic Shoppe" or something like that.

                  Those who always preach about lotteries being a waste of money seem to gravitate towards those folks they know who've won lotteries forever begging for 'donations'. BS I still stand firm on playing responsibly !I Agree!

                    IT is a sin.Everything is his,so that includes money.If your kid takes money out of your wallet and gives it away,would you give him more if he asked for it?That would be theft,and that is a sin.One of the ten itself.It's called stewardship in the bible.We are supposed to be good stewards of God's stuff.If we aren't,He might take it away.Thats why Christians tithe.It's for the local church to keep functioning and help others.Not for pastors to buy fancy cars and waste as do alot of churches today.As long as the person gives for the right reason,their safe.GOD sees there heart.What they do with it after that is on them and wouldn't decide wether or not God blesses the giver.That why christians call it a sin.I'm not bashing anyone with the bible so please don't take it as such.I had the same question myself and looked it up.I'm just giving you the answer that was researched and found true.I don't guess an answer.It's not worth wasting your time reading to read it.

                            According to the bible,gambling shows God that people aren't trusting that He will provide for whoever is playing,instead they are relying on chance because the person gambling feels what God hasn't given him or her enough to be satisfied with.LUKE chapter 3,verse 14 tells us to be content with our wages.

                              I don't know how you construe John the Baptist telling soldiers to be content with their wages with God not wanting anyone to gamble but it makes me wonder why you've come to the Lottery Post if you indeed think gambling is a sin.
