  • I read that four times and I still don't get what happened. Scriptures like Bible verses? Which verse did they send you that said a lady was lucky? Unprescribed?
    • Rick Myres
      I tried to edit it to say I unsubscribed two or three times. It was their statement not a Bible verse because luck is not in the Bible. There is no such thing as luck for the Bible is clear about it when it says nothing happens by chance because God has His hand in all.
    • Linda Joy
      Did you remember to save it after you changed it?
    • Rick Myres
      Every attempt yes I sure did. Y = thumbs up.
  • I get why you did it, because luck cannot exist in a world where guidance comes from God, the Holy Spirit. I suppose you have to do what is right for you, and if it doesn't sit right then don't get involved. It may have just been a throw away comment that wasn't really thought about. There's many a crooked Christian site.
    • Rick Myres
      For me to not get involved would be disobedient to God. :)
  • No. I don't "get scriptures" from unknown sources to begin with. I read KJV only with the guidance from the Holy Spirit. I don't let others explain scriptures to me. And while I realize lucky really means blessed or fortunate or serendipitious, I don't discount a source over one word. Although I understand how you feel because I'm that way with the word love being substituted for charity because some people confuse it with romantic love instead of agape love. I respect you must do what you feel is right for you.
    • Rick Myres
      God has laid it on my heart years ago to speak against luck. Charity means love and some do not understand the difference of love in the heart vs love in the mind.

      It's o.k. to believe whatever you wish. Its wrong to try and force others to believe as you do. Simply stating what you believe is fine, though.
  • I would question them first to see if the word luck was used by unconscious habit or belief. God and luck don’t go together. Superstitious ways of bringing good luck are found in cultures worldwide. The role of luck is influencing many people who claim to be Christians to gain success. One thing you can be assured of: 1 John 4:1 "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world."
    • Rick Myres
      Anybody sending Bible scriptures should not have a habit of using luck whether it is on purpose or not. It is far from being used by God. Thank you for the scripture.
    • Linda Joy
      I can understand telling Christians they shouldn't call someone a fool, or pointing out that being stubborn is compared to witchcraft, (just one of my many faults) but as you pointed out nowhere in The Bible are we told not to believe in luck. I believe good luck comes from God, and they are not mutually exclusive. But I'm not trying to tell you what to believe, or argue. I just don't understand why its so important to you you feel a need to preach this word or try to correct or admonish others when its not even addressed in The Bible. This is just YOUR OPINION, not scripture. But I agree its not just dumb luck. It is inspired of God.

      Rick, All-Scripture is intended for reproof and correction. (2 Timothy 3:16-17) Questioning is important to know ones motives. If you feel you did the right thing by avoiding a simple conversation that could have turned out into a quarrel, unsubscribing is always another option.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Linda Joy, quote: "but as you pointed out nowhere in The Bible are we told not to believe in luck." I don't need to. Luck is based on SUPERSTITIOUS TRADITION. As usual, you are about to lose this debate with me. The synonyms of the word luck are good fortune and prosperity. You should NEVER put your confidence on a practice that is not based on facts or reality, like carrying a rabbit's foot because it brings good luck. Superstition, plural noun: superstitions "she touched her locket for luck, a superstition she had since childhood" Psalm 121:1-2 "I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? 2 My help comes from the LORD, who made Heaven and Earth."
    • Linda Joy
      My comment was to Rick's comment. He is the one who supposedly has been called to preach against luck. And knowing 'good luck' comes from God is not a SUPERSTITIOUS TRADITION! The scriptures also say all good things come from God. So you can call yourself a winner of a debate if that is important to you, but contention comes from SATAN!
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Linda Joy, quote: "And knowing 'good luck' comes from God is not a SUPERSTITIOUS TRADITION!" God does not give luck as if he were a SUPERSTITIOUS BEING or OBJECT. His sovereignty is SELF-DETERMINED. Quote: "The scriptures also say all good things come from God." You have it twisted. Good things are found in miracles. There is no such thing as healing or other prosperous occurrences to luck simply because God does not GAMBLE with us.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Linda Joy, quote: "but contention comes from SATAN!" Not precisely. I made it clear to Rick how All-Scripture is used for reproof and correction. Isaiah 43:36 "Put me in remembrance: let us contend together: state your case, that you may be proved right."
  • It is amusing how everybody wants to call me out, but none have been supposedly lucky to disprove me. To answer this question again, the Bible is knowledge and is justified. It tells us to avoid superstitions that give people the illusion of control. 1 Timothy 4:7 "Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness;"
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Should Christians rely on a rabbit's foot or any other object for good luck? How about, should Christians pray to God or gamble as another option? Anybody want to try their lucky charms with me?
    • Linda Joy
      In my best Irish accent: "Always after me Lucky Charms!"
    • Jenny Rizzo
      I would rather lay some bricks by using God's Word with rational thinking. Perhaps you would like to try your lucky charms with me again in my answer to see if you can get it together in which I doubt.
    • Linda Joy
      The rabbit's foot charm is not lucky for the rabbit!
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Exactly. And neither should superstitious people put their trust on a rabbit's foot.
  • Actually the word luck is not even in the Bible the only way I would believe in luck is if it was in the Bible. Look at it this way, luc is the first three in Lucifer.
