    Warning of a different kind. They're messaging you? As in this offer is coming by email or text message? Don't go for it. They may, or may not, actually choose a winner, but they can afford the pay out, because they just netted a bunch of people willing to give out contact information to play. Either they're creating a marketing list to sell, using it themselves to keep selling, or are hacking/phishing you.

    What did Paul mean when he said that ALL things are LAWFUL, but not necessarily expedient.......??

    MANY times we see a "devil" behind every bush and in doing so we attribute SIN where SIN is not necessarily attributed....does it not have a lot to do with being overcome by something? As a matter of fact we can MAKE almost everything we do under the sun SIN when we do the above---->"see a devil behind every bush"

    Just saying.........
