"As a Christian I believe that God is our source. He provided me with a job, and a salary. I give faithfully to God's work, through my church and other organisations, and to some individuals. I believe that God is my source, and so I don't need to do the lottery. God's purpose for me is not to get rich in wealth, but all that I own is already His. When God provides for things I cannot afford, then I know that He is indeed my provider. He has never let me down. The love of money is the root of all evil, and in participating in the lottery, I would really be saying, "I don't need God." I trust God - so I don't need to gamble."
"I personally don't gamble, I don't think Jesus taught it as a good thing."
"God's blessing does not come from sinning (gambling).God's blessings come from obedience to His word.If you win a lottery, its from satan, not God. And satan's gifts always come with a string attached to get you to spend eternal damnation with him in hell.Blessings from God, are unconditional, sincere and because He loves us and hears us."
"I bought a lottery ticket just once but I didn't win - the way I look at it is if you buy one once you improve your chances from zero to one in forty-seven milllion or whatever, but buy one again and your chances are still the same it's just another trial of the same odds.But since I've become a Quaker I haven't gambled as it's not encouraged even raffles. I think the thinking is that it isn't a responsible use of your money and you get something for nothing in effect."
And if you think this isn't solid enough,
For all those who are struggling with this kind of problem or ambiguity about Christians participating in lotteries...STOP IMMEDIATELY.
The world can tell you anything to deceive you, but never forget what the Bible says. Jesus owns everything we have. Every single thing. And to misuse God's property to commit a sin is equal to going against His word...disobeying.
So STOP. Gambling will destroy your life. Once you get addicted...it'll be hard to get out of it. Gambling never came from God. Never did.
