Proof that "the lottery" is controlled by Satan

Post  Waqar Daniel on Tue 04 Sep 2007, 10:38 pm

Today I received this email and found it to be useful and I am posting it here for all of you to read.

MATTHEW 4:8-9 (NLT)
Next the Devil (Satan) took him to the peak of a very high mountain and showed him the nations of the world and all their glory. 9 “I will give it all to you,” he said, “if you will only kneel down and worship me.”

MATTHEW 19:21-23
21 Jesus told him (a rich young man with many possessions), “If you want to be perfect, go and sell all you have and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 22 But when the young man heard this, he went sadly away because he had many possessions (aka loved being rich!).
23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you the truth, it is very hard for a rich person to get into the Kingdom of Heaven. 24 I say it again—it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle[color=#000000]* than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God[/color]!”

* Note: a camel cannot go through the eye of a needle.

Here is proof that the lottery is controlled by Satan... and why you shouldn't play it...

Bartlett offered his soul and promised the souls of others, and won the lottery:

Elwood "Bunky" Bartlett, a self-professed Wicca (witchcraft) and Reiki healer, and an accountant from Dundalk, Maryland, said he made a bargain with the multiple gods (aka demons who serve Satan) associated with his Wiccan beliefs: "You let me win the lottery and I'll teach."

Wicca Teacher Claims Piece of Jackpot

ATLANTA (Sept. 2) - Elwood "Bunky" Bartlett says a New Age book store made it possible for him to become an overnight multimillionaire.

Elwood "Bunky" Bartlett, a self-professed Wicca and Reiki healer, says he has one of the four winning tickets to the Aug. 31 $330 Mega Millions jackpot.

He and his wife, Denise, were on their way to the shop where he occasionally teaches Wicca and Reiki healing when they stopped at a liquor store and bought two $5 Mega Millions tickets for Friday night's estimated $330 million jackpot. On Sunday, he said one ticket was a winner.

"If it wasn't for this place I wouldn't have won the lottery," Bartlett said Sunday at Mystickal Voyage, the New Age shop.

Four winning tickets to the Mega Millions jackpot were sold in Maryland, New Jersey, Texas and Virginia. Lottery officials said Sunday they cannot confirm the validity of Bartlett's ticket before they meet with him on Tuesday.

"There's no reason to believe it's not legitimate, but it has to go through security," said Maryland State Lottery Director Buddy Roogow, who said he has spoken with Bartlett.

Bartlett, an accountant from Dundalk, Maryland, said he made a bargain with the multiple gods associated with his Wiccan beliefs: "You let me win the lottery and I'll teach." Both tickets he purchased had numbers chosen randomly from the computer.

Bartlett had not decided if he will accept his winnings as an annuity or choose the lump sum cash option. The jackpot could get larger once ticket sales are tallied, Roogow said, but the lump sum payment would be at least $48.7 million, or about $32 million after taxes.

According to preliminary calculations, each ticket would be worth about $82 million if the prize were taken in 26 annual payments.

Bartlett said the money won't change him, although he plans to invest in Mystickal Voyage. "I'm going to live my life like I have been," he said.

The odds that any ticket would match all five numbers - 8, 18, 22, 40 and 44 - and the Mega Ball number - 11 - were one in 176 million.

If estimates of the jackpot hold true, it would be the fourth largest in the lottery's history. It was known as The Big Game when it awarded jackpots of $363 million in 2000 and $331 million in 2002.

Mega Millions tickets are also sold in California, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Ohio and Washington.

Thank you this really a great post. Surely satan wants us to leave the right path and follow him. Bible talks of every thing and this is really great when we put Bible in the right context in our lives.

I have admit that whenever I get these emails of poker, and lottery, I am tempted to earn quick money. Surely satan wants to steal us from God but God is so kind that He always helps us to remain on the striaght path.

God bless
