 I used to be a hardcore fundamentalist christian for 15 years.

 It was mid 2005 that I first had my dream telling me that I would win the lottery. I fell into a deep dillema. Why?

 Because 99% of Korean protestant churches (even ones in the US) demand tithe, based on Biblical verses. Many Korean churches demand 10% of your GROSS income no matter what. And many Korean christians willfully donate the tithe, believing that tithing is the key to the heaven's door.

 Avoiding tithing is a serious blasphemy, according to the Book of Malachi, FYI. So I worried about tithing after winning the lottery. If I win 40 million dollars, I would have to give 4 millions to a single church. That's what 99% of Korean pastors preach.

 But some traumatic and excruciating event drove away from christianity. Now my mom, who's a hardcore catholic who speaks in tongue and prophecize, strongly believes that I am possessed by devil. She strongly believes that all bad thoughts and behaviors are caused by evil spirits, not a person's own shortcomings.

 I am still going to university full-time and I live with my whole family. I think my mom will try to take control of my asset if I win a lottery jackpot, believing that I will be using the money for sinful purpose. If that happens, I will have to put my mom on restraining order. And I am not gonna give any break if she violates it.

              I try to keep my religious beliefs and the lottery separate, but that is just me.
