I get these letters from a certain church in Oklahoma that basically say send us money and we promise you will have a miracle tomorrow or you will come into a lot of money soon. I don't believe God plays these games with people. And also, I get emails from my friends that say to send them to so many friends and you will get a miracle in so many days, depending on how many people you send it to. I'm just sick of this crap. GOD DOESN'T PLAY THESE STUPID GAMES!! Please let me know if you agree.

I agree with you. No one can give you a miracle. Only God can give you a miracle, when you ask in his name and have faith of a mustard seed. I trash anything that I get in the mail like that.

I get a piece of mail from these people every day, not an exaggeration either. I sent them a note last month asking them to stop, but they don't. They just go in the trash, I don't even read them. Just annoys me!

I have a suggestion, if you get a self stamped envelope with it, tear it up and then stick it in the envelope and mail it back to them.. Maybe they will get the hint then.

I agree. God does not anyone's help to get people into heaven. He is very capable of doing it Himself, by opening the hearts of men to preach the word and to build churches wherein to preach about HIM. Wasn't that what Simon the Magician did back in Acts? He offered Peter money so he could get the holy spirit. I guess things have not changed since then.

ya I am agree to you if it is like that no one in this world will be poor or sad.i too remember about such kind of letter i once recieved and there i was requested to amke 100 copies of it and this will happen ,that will happen and few stories about the persond who have posted such letters and he had win a lottrey or something. there was one warning too that if i will ignore that i may be in some trouble oneof my family member may die. but i never bother about such follish philospy.

I get those letters all the time, I just gather up all of my other junk mail I got that day, including the envolope they sent their letter to me in and mail it back to them in their postage paid envelope. Hopefully by doing so, I am costing them something even if it's an odd look on their face when they open it :oP As for those dang emails, my friends and family have learned from my rants not to bother sending them my way any more. The ones I hate is those that demand you prove your love for God or the strength of your faith by forwarding them to as many people as you can!! UUURRRGGG! I agree with you, God doesn't play these stupid games!

Just throw the letters in the garbage and delete the e-mails. I agree with you, I don't think God plays these games but a lot of these evangelists are getting wealthy because some people are so desperate for a miracle or so in need that they believe in this. It is such a shame that despairing people are taken advantage of.

I think you should have a word with the church that are sending you these letters because i would be so infurated if they were asking for money and basically saying "give us money and we will give you a mirical" the chain letters i recieve are simular to those that you get, so what i do is have a small little virus created and i have told people if they give me a chain letter i will give you a virus, luckily they stopped after i sent it to my mate ~.^
