I received a mail today from Malia (USA). She likes the Q & A section of the blog, it has really helped her. Malia's father gambles which she doesn't like. Malia's elder brother starts gambling recently, she told him gambling is bad but his brother said it is not a sin.
I think the Bible does not specifically condemn gambling. The Bible does warn us, however, to stay away from the love of money (1 Timothy 6:10; Hebrews 13:5). Scripture also encourages us to stay away from attempts to “get rich quick” (Proverbs 13:11; 23:5; Ecclesiastes 5:10). Gambling most definitely is focused on the love of money and undeniably tempts people with the promise of quick and easy riches.
What do you think? Is Gambling A Sin?
