Hallelujah! Mich. church wins $70K in lottery
Divine intervention? Or just plain luck?

No matter what the circumstances, a Michigan church is $70,000 richer courtesy of the Michigan Lottery.

The Covenant Life Worship Center and its 25 members in Haslett, Mich. had one of the second-prize tickets in the Lucky 7s raffle held May 4.

"I wonder if 'wages of a dog' fits gambling?"

Commentators I've read consider a "dog" in the Torah to be Heb. idiom for a male cult prostitute.

Gambling is foolish & indicative of covetousness. Perhaps Rev. 3:17 is more to the point here.

Alan H, amen!

Deuteronomy 23
18Thou shalt not bring the hire of a harlot, or the wages of a dog, into the house of Jehovah thy God for any vow: for even both these are an abomination unto Jehovah thy God.

I wonder if "wages of a dog" fits gambling?

"Pastor Marilyn Parmelee tells the Lansing State Journal that the prize money will go toward the church building fund, setting up a missionary fund and supporting local community service projects."

The "woman pastor," Marilyn Parmelee, not only excuses this sin, but expresses the foolish idea that this method is consistent with God's manners of provision for the needs of HIS CHURCH. This way of thinking, "the end justifies the means," comes from some other source than from God. IT IS NEVER NEVER NEVER RIGHT TO DO WRONG!

"And not [rather], (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just." Romans 3:8

But, what can we expect! When the root is bad, so will the fruit be also.

"Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but [they are commanded] to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church...

If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord." (1 Corinthians 14:34-35 & 37)

Denial always leads to disobedience!

The church should be giving their money to the Lord rather than the coffers of the Michigan Lottery. I wander how much of God's money they squandered on gambling before striking it rich.
