      This thread is about Christians against the lottery and gambling.

      All I did was point out the fact that there are some churches who are against the lotto/gambling

      but do their own form of lotto (raffle/bingo) and taking peoples money promising them a return.

      (twisting scripture) Give 10% of your income (tithe) and God will give you a 100 fold return (Mark 4:20)

      is what I always seen preached in the church and it simply does not happen. I tithed for 11 years!!

      Please don't pretend you know me, I do GIVE.Yes Nod

      All I'm saying that we are under a new covenant you GIVE to the church, you no longer have to tithe and

      your local church does not replace the temple. Nothing wrong with GIVING to the church to help out with

      expenses.

       

      I am also confused as to why you think I'm hostile towards Chritianity when I simply pointed out the

      hypocrisy in some churches. I wouldn't know if it's popular to hate Christians, you tell me, I'm not into hating.

       

      By the way this thread is not about "the other guys", dead babies, donkeys, Planned Parenthood and

      anything else you want to pull out of the air, again this thread is about the Christians who don't agree with

      the lotto, not Christianity as a whole.

      Wow. That lenthy thread really stayed on topic.What? lol. lol. lol.

          The truth is it does not cost money to preach the word of GOD, just open your mouth! it's free!!

          Jesus never charged anyone for anything, why should that change in this day and age?

           

          Now as far as churches raising money, keep in mind and keep to the subject of this thread, I'm talking

          about Churches that have a problem with the lottery but charge people for things that should be available

          for FREE!!

          Nothing wrong with selling books and other informational items if they are also available for FREE!!

          And if a member chooses to get that same FREE information (a sermon etc) in another form such as

          on tape or a book, no problem if they pay for it!

           

          But a lot of what you see is some preachers claiming they have a "word from the Lord" that could change

          your life ect and turn around and put a price tag on it!! That's wrong!!

          Tithing is old testement,  we are under a new covenant, GIVING is new testament.

          Giving is good!!

          I wonder why Jesus had a Treasurer on his staff.....What?

            Just because you didn't SEE the 100 fold return doesn't mean you didn't get it........

            People on LP have wished for me to be run over by a car...... But what do you know? I have never been run over by a car and I thank my God for the 100 fold return on my tithes and offering.......
