RL,
This thread had me thinking on how predestination and free will would fit in - then I realized quick picks (predestination) vs self picks (free will)!

Scared

realtorjim,
I'm sure the big guy has a sense of humor - in fact maybe sometimes he lets certain people win just to see what will happen.

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.

      RL,

      There are military units called PSYOPS, psychological operations.

      These operations can be anything from messing with people's minds to swaying them in one direction or another.

      I often think the Bible is the best PSYOPS manual ever written.

      "The first shall be last and the last shall be first" is just one example.
      Scared

      The bible may be a very successful PSYOPS manual, but I'm not sure that's the same as best. Or second best as the case may be. Maybe there's another that I'm overlooking, but I think the Koran is probably the most successful.

      There are plenty of christians that are bat chit crazy and think it's imperative that everyone else follow their beliefs, but their lack of real commitment is obvious. Plenty of them are willing to kill others, but very few will blow themselves up. The bat chit crazy muslims, OTOH, are a far more dedicated bunch. Some of them actually want to die in order to change you.

        I posted this hoping to make a few giggle or maybe even laugh out loud.  Here is about all I will say

        about my beliefs.

         

        There are many gods but only one creator

        There are many spirits but most are not Holy

        There are multitudes of sons but only one Yeshua

        The creator gave power to some of his higher creation, some more than others.

        At some point God assigned earthly regions to these lesser gods to rule over mankind

        Some of these lesser gods rebelled which is why we have so many holy wars and different religions

        The Mystery mentioned in the bible is that God will retake all nations and setup a single kingdom

        where his true followers will rule everything.

        No human will ever get to heaven because he/she was good, or go to hell because they were bad.

        Heaven is not floating around on a cloud, It's a off-world kingdom true followers will call home.

        All true followers will receive power to run the affairs of Gods new earthly kingdom.

        While heaven will be their primary residence I suspect they will be on the "road" so to say, quite a bit.

        The rebellious former lesser gods will all be punished and replaced.

        Those who come last will see the kingdom first as they are still here and those who have passed on will

        see it last. 

        Everything here can be found in the Bible and is easy once you know what to look for.  Paul knew this and

        done everything in his power to help reclaim the kingdoms of earth.   Most Christians don't have a clue as

        to what they are suppose to be doing now, most are waiting to go to heaven but the kingdom comes from

        within.   Want to change the world, start with yourself first.  Once you master that others will follow your

        example.   That to is just like the lottery, win big and everyone will try to mimic you methods.   If it's real

        it will work for others.  If not then more work needs to be done.

          KY Floyd,

          I'll still say the Bible is the best PSYOPS manual ever.

          The bible has many mixed messages, ' have a little wine, it's good for the stomach' - 'wine maketh a mocker of man'.

          In Christianity, Jesus sacrificed Himself and died for us.

          In islam, which means submission, you die for allah. The koran is a good 'manual' for bloodthirsty types who want to kill and maim people - 'cut off opposing limbs of infidels', ' if they don't convert tax them heavily or kill them' - but not really a PSYOPS affair.

          Just my $02.

          RL,
          I'd rather stick with the humor, too.

          Smile

            Another one came to mind.

            With both,  you will meet friends you never knew you had.

              In the UK, churches can apply for lottery funding.

               

              Heritage Lottery Fund


              The HLF has over £375m annually and all of their main funding streams are open to churches, often the oldest or most significant building in a local place.

              The HLF fund a range of heritage projects, activities and events in churches, including:

              Conservation of organs, bells, clocks, paintings, stained glass, textiles and sculpture;


              Projects which increase access to heritage, such as guide books or exhibitions;


              Digital projects to create videos, podcasts, oral histories and online content.

               

               

               

              If churches in the US got lottery funding, all hell would break loose!

              We all get a lot out of lotteries!

                RL,

                Both encourage praying - but the difference between praying in church and praying while watching a drawing? When you watch the drawing you really mean it!
