ORANGE PARK, FL — After Robert Powell hit the Florida Lottery jackpot last month and took home more than $6 million, he thought of his church.
And he offered to drop his tithe, around $600,000, in the collection plate of First Baptist Orange Park.
But the church and Pastor David Tarkington politely declined and told Powell they will not accept the lottery winnings.
Hey Mr. Powell have you considered crossing the Tiber? Donations from lottery money, hey we’re down with that (with the caveat expressed in CCC 2413).
