You can say "no"

Wally turned me on to a news story about a German man who is turning down his recent $4 million lottery winnings.

The idea blows me away. Of course, there are plenty of folks who reject a far greater gift - salvation. We can say "no" to God. Unless you're a Calvinist. In which case you can't say "no," or you can't say "yes." Apparently the whole thing is out of your hands. I think. Maybe.

Why would anyone turn down so much money??? I agree it can be evil, but at the same time he could have done something really cool with it.. Like paid off my student loans and buy me a new house :-)...

You know, I wasn't going to comment or make a Calvinist joke, but now I don't have a choice.
