SmileHello to all the Lp family out there,

I'm new and was wondering about the lottery and God's ways for us to follow; Please give me your views on this matter I'm pondering......Is purchasing the p3 and p4 or any type lottery against God's will for us?  I live in the Bahamas where we are known as a christian nation, however there are many known christians who are purchasing 'numbers'(as we call p3 and p4 lottery in the bahamas). I have read many of your discussions here on LP and i'm quit impress on how you stick together and support each other!  Power is in unity and strength to all who take the messages here.  Thanks for all the views sent..much love to all!!!

        each religion has different views, it's up

        Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

          I think it's more up to you and how comfortable you feel playing or not. If it feels like a sin to play then I wouldn't. But if you are playing and having fun with no guilt then good luck to you and hope you hit big :)

            I See it this way. Its not a sin to play.

            Its a sin to when you hurt yourself or someone else because of it.

            Whenever I win something significant , I always donate something to a charitable cause, for Example St Judes children Hospital,Local Churches,  etc..For Some reason it makes me feel alot better.

            Good Luck and Blessings.

            Keep moving Forward.

              I Agree! 

               

               Always give something,and if you win,give a little more offering,donation than you normally would..

                    You have to understand that any one sin is no greater than the other. Sin is sin and thats the way God is

                    going to judge us all. Whether you not steal but tell lies we all will float in the same pit of fire. My advice is

                    whatever God bless you with,do good things with it. Remember our "Thoughts are not Gods thoghts".

                      My wife and I often play at the service counter of a grocery store. During the Holiday season when the Salvation Army bell ringers are present I don't know how many times I've seen someone who has played lotto be the ones to give something to the Salvation Army while most everyone else just walks past them.

                      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                        I think its ok to play as long as you are smart enough to control your winnings and losses... cant always play everyday...and make sure you donate your winnings back to church or God or help someone in need...

                            I think that God would be fine with you playing Pick3 / Pick4...and should you win, GOD would expect you to pay your 10% Tithe .

                            GOOD LUCK...!!!

                              I just called a Vegas sports book about this.

                              Here's the line

                              Gambling

                              A sin - Pk (Pick 'em)

                              Not - Pk

                              $110 to win $100.
