Just the other week, we spray painted a post on the Wall about gambling and Christianity because of a man that won his state lottery of $6M and cut a tithe check to his church. How faithful, right? Well, the church gave him the Heisman and dude kept his cash.
Amazing how churches are supposed to worship the same God, read the same Bible but pick and choose different scriptures to follow. Take the True North Community Church in Port Jefferson, N.Y., as noted in FOX News.
Pastor Bertrand Crabbe of the True North Community Church of Port Jefferson said the donor, who asked to remain anonymous, said, “This was why God put the ticket in his hands.” The state Lottery announced Wednesday that the independent Christian church will get at least $102,225 a year through the year 2028. The amount could be higher if withheld taxes are refunded because of the church’s nonprofit status.
Conversely from the aforementioned post, this is a church (and a pastor) that doesn’t mind where the money came from, but rather what they intend to do with it. Oh, the church was given a $3 MILLION check as a result of the proceeds.
If any Wall Watchers dares to start the debate on WWJD, great. But in so doing, please answer WWYD as well.
You know, I wonder if somewhere the pastor who stood on his biblical laurels in the previous post is thinking, “You know, this foundation is cracking. Maybe I oughta’ get that Pick 6… in the name of Jesus, of course.”
