If you're going to play the lottery and go to church I guess there's a lot to be said for going to one that won't want your money if you win.

    So true, wait a minute, if you play the lottery doesn't that contradict what your fellow churchgoers believe in, NOT GAMBLING?

      I would give to charities that I chose to give and help people in my life that I know who needs help.

          Am with you catsrule,

          because when you pay your tithes to the church, the church goes out and help the communties,e.g.clothes cook out the childrens and many more.So YES i do pay tithes when i win big.

            Very tricky question.  I don't think my church will accept tithes from ill-gotton gains from gambling, but I would offer.

            I read an article a while back where a lottery winner wanted to give to a/his church but the church refused his offer because the money came from the lottery

                    Who would want to go to a brothel that has church ladies?

                    With the lottery I get all the exercise I need.

                                      In futility.
