Somebody wants to give me 4 million dollars!

How many of ya'll get those emails that tell you you have won the lottery? Me too!

Or the ones where some poor soul needs someone to give all this money too because someone else passed away before they were able to get it into the right hands.
I get at least 3 or 4 of these a day.
I used to just mark them as spam and they would go bye-bye.
But the other day I got one that got my God involved and I got mad. How dare they?
So I decided to at least set them straight on the real story. And this is what I am now doing to all those pesky emails. I am using them as an opportunity to go into all the world. ;)
Have you noticed the red button way down at the bottom of my blog?
If you click on that it will take you to the site that lays out very neatly
the whole plan of salvation.
If they want something back from me-- I decided I'll send them a little truth.
I have started to reply to their schemes with a little truth of His own.
I went to the sight and copied the truth and then hit reply on the email and hit copy and paste.
And bam!-at little good new is on the way back to them. ;)
Maybe they will read it and maybe I'll have the pleasure of meeting them in heaven.
How cool would that be?
If they don't like the message then maybe they will take my email address off their list.
If not--they are going to get the truth as often as I get their emails. :)

What a great idea. Most of the time when I try to reply to those emails my response gets kicked back to me b/c on an invalid email address of their part. Let me know if it actually works. I'd like to try something like that too.

Hee hee

It reminds me of a few years ago. Someone made a crank call to the house ... Being a bit naive in some things I didn't quite get what they were saying ... and then when I realised it was an obscene call, I hung up. I was telling my house mates and rehashing what I should have said ... and then said ... um ... no ...actually I would pray for them. I would ... "brrinnnng" went the telephone!

I picked it up and it was the same guy calling back even more obscene. I immediately launched into prayer for him ... at first he stopped and sarcastically said oh yes. Halleluia ... but I just kept praying. A few minutes later this little voice goes, "um look. I am really sorry ..." At this point, I said "mate if you need help, go and see a pastor. Please don't call here again". And that was the end of that! It was hilarious ...

Sassiekiwi- Way to go!
You know they are trying these things because they need help. Let's give them what they need.
