Reverent lee.

Although playing the lottery and raffles are not listed in the bible most christians associate the lottery with Christ's cruicifixion which offends some christians. 

Psalms 22:18 They parted my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

Matthew 27:35 And they crucifed him, and parted his gatments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

John 19:24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

I Corinthians 8:13 Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh  while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.  

The lottery/lotto was named after casting lots.

I hope this helps.

Be blessed.


Be Blessed. Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity (Love), I am become as a sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vauneth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seekth not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is (Love) charity.
