Christians Are Justifying Buying a Mega Millions Ticket By Promising to Tithe

With Tuesday’s Mega Millions jackpot at $1.6 billion (and counting), even Christians who typically say gambling is a sin are allowing themselves to imagine life as a billionaire.

It’s okay to buy lottery tickets, they argue, because some of that money would go right back to God.

Some churches are already making a play for their eventual 10% cut…

Is it wrong for them to want money obtained through a form of gambling? Does it matter? It’s not like a church is ever going to reject that much cash…

One Philadelphia church even bought a ticket and told people that if it was a winner, all church members would receive a portion of the money if they shared the following post.

They lost.

You will too. Because math, unlike what you hear in church, is irrefutable.

Your chances of winning the big prize are 1 in 302,575,350. Even Jesus can’t overcome those odds.
