In no way am I against God or the mention of "His Holy Name" 

She said she would thank God. I didn't ask who would you thank did I? I asked who would you tell first and why?

Anyway, if you're a religious person and believe that God is all-knowing then why would you have to tell/thank him anyway? He'd already know because he did it. Also, what makes you stand out from the millions of other devout hard-working Christians who play the lottery? You're thanking him for favoring you over everyone else who prayed for the same thing? I thought he was supposed to be fair and just...?

 

LET ME BE CLEAR HERE

I'm looking for answers that have to do with physical beings that you can touch, smell, hear, and see. Not spiritual ones.

I don't want to step on any fragile toes by offending you or your beliefs.

Maybe next time I'll be more specific in my original post.

Nothing wrong with your question, but you opened up Pandoras box by asking that type of question, and from what I can see you got plenty of responces.

By the way, When you spoke of "HIM", he is fair and just. He didn't choose her over all the hard working Christians who supposedly asked for the same thing, because she was standing out over all the millions. What he did was to give her the blessing because he saw she needed it the most compared to others. " HE" doesn't just give a blessing for the sake of giving, "HE" gives it when it is truly needed. And that my friend is the meaning of " Fair and Just"...

    **ducking and covering**

    After praising God for the bounty...

    then I would tell the Lawyers about my win in order to set up the trusts...

    then... I would buy a case or so of duct tape and apply it liberally to my lips anytime they seemed to part for casual conversation...

      This is why I asked not to mention God as a person you'd tell because this kinda <snip> happens every time. The original question hasn't even be answered by most of you and the entire thread is now a religious/political debate.

      I've got people quoting bible scriptures at me, taking my little request to keep the answers subject to actual people and blowing it out of proportion.

      Some dude took every line of my response and tried to point out what's wrong with each one. Really yo'? Most of what you said was complete nonsense or little errors in grammar.

      It's like you feel like I'm attacking you personally. When all that's happening is I'm being attacked. For what? Not sharing the same beliefs as you and asking you to give me answers that don't pertain to God?

      This is a LOTTERY forum. Not a religious one. There are forums out there where you can debate over your beliefs but not here.

        ok let me try again...

        After giving praise for the win...

        then I would tell the Lawyers about my win in order to set up the trusts...

        then... I would buy a case or so of duct tape and apply it liberally to my lips anytime they seemed to part for casual conversation...

        (better worded?)

          I don't think that's gonna be good enough for him, max.

          Cuz in the back of his mind he's gonna think "praise" refers to "you know who" and it's gonna set him off again.

          They can't tolerate even the thought of somebody referring to "you know who."

          It's like showing a Crucifix to Dracula or something.

            Hey, this is my first post! W00T!

             

            Anyway, my question to you is if you won the lottery (PB/MM) who would you tell about it first and why?

            (This is obviously before cashing the ticket in)

             

            I'm looking forward to some good responses!

            Ok one more time. You Kordman asked a question, a member responded with her answer.

            We are not attacking you on the contrary we (Christians) are being attack for wanting to acknowledge GOD in our answer.

              The 'tell the lawyers' part might be my most stressful moment. I don't have a trusted attorney. I would be anxious to get everything started so I'm not sure how thorough I would be in vetting my choice for lawyer.  First you need to beat  astronomical odds and hit the numbers and then you need to get lucky and get a lawyer who is both ethical and competent. We've all seen too many stories of rich people being screwed over by their attorneys, managers and financial guys.

                Listen up, Dorkman.

                Nobody gives a rat's azz about your touchy-feely sensibilities and the horror you feel and offense you take at somebody mentioning the Holy Name of the Creator.

                You ain't the first leg-humping atheist to come in here and think he can start calling the shots after being here less than 24 hours and you surely won't be the last.

                So get over it and get over yourself.
