What would you do if you won the lottery

I very often heard people say if I won the lottery I would give it to the church (or at least a large part of it). Often wondered what would happen if a church goer actually did win the lottery would they do it. Well wonder no more its actually happened in a church. (Not our church before you get excited)

Read this over at Roger Blackmore site.

Pennies From Heaven

"My friend Bert Crabbe is facing serious space issues over at www.truenorthchurch.net and is planning to introduce a fifth service in September.

When he announced the addition to his church recently, he suggested that was the best plan unless someone had a spare couple of million laying around. So I hear today that the following week someone in his congregation bought a scratch-off lottery card, won $3 million and gave it to the church!

I love what God is doing over there.

Weird way to get money, but then I gather God likes to push the limits."

PS Please do not leave me comments about Christians and gambling etc. I am not saying it is right or wrong I am just repeating an interesting story.

How about going out and robbing others to use the moneyt for God's kingdom...Would that be 'wealth transfer'?

if you are robbing others known and unknown, you are out of the will of God this certainly will not be wealth transfer
