Is “God” the winner?... “God” Gets Junk Mail Too! (This is a true story)
Can you imagine even “God” gets one of those gold-sticker-laden sweepstakes entry forms and magazine sales pitches. No doubt, you have received a sweepstakes notice at some time from American Family Publishers. You know how it works. You look over their magazine bargains -- and the chance to buy a few for your home, office, or waiting room. In return, they give you the opportunity to win large amounts of money.
On about February 1997 American Family Publishers sent its computer-generated form letter to the Bushnell Assembly of God, a church located in Central Florida. The computer somehow twisted the name of the church and a sweepstakes notice addressed to "God of Bushnell" was sent to the church.
The letter read, “Dear God, we’re searching for you. You’ve been positively identified as our $11,000,000 mystery millionaire”. The letter went on to say, "What an incredible fortune there would be for God! Imagine the looks you'd get from neighbors. But don't just sit there, God, come forward now and claim your prize!" Of course, the fine print said the Creator was merely a finalist, but a letter with the entry form lured him to try his luck. The church’s Minister said that he had not yet decided whether the church would enter the sweepstakes. God has $11 million already he said.
The other 20 Million recipients of that letter might as well give up tiring to win because we all know who has the edge here!
